What are the odds, that not only is today both Wine Wednesday AND National Chocolate Cake Day? As if we needed a reason to consume either! This year they both line up perfectly into one glorious day. Maybe it’s because it’s getting close to Valentine’s Day, or maybe I’m a fan of date nights that involve a good red wine and a luscious cake, but I feel like this week’s idea board should be an ever-so-lightly romantic evening for two. And you guessed it: chocolate cake and wine are on the menu. Here’s what I had in mind:
Don’t you think that card is adorable? How cute would it be to write a little love note and ask if your other half will join you for a little wine and chocolate and mail it to them? I would be thrilled to get that in the mail! Here’s where I found all of these great images for this week’s inspiration:

What would you do if we created a National Wine and Chocolate Cake Day holiday?
I’d insist I had to take the day off.
How perfect would you consider your birthday if you had pretty butterfly decorations, colorful fruit to nibble on, and decadent chocolate brownies to savor? I know I’d be thrilled.
You really can’t go wrong with these three elements being the center of attention at your next bash. Be it a bridal, birthday, baby, or just a get together with the girls, rainbows and butterflies…..with a side of chocolate, how can you go wrong? Here’s what I had in mind for this upbeat, sweets filled soiree:
