It’s the sweetest time of year and we’re here to make sure you know the ins and outs of how to celebrate Cupid’s holiday! From making your own bouquets to heart-shaped pizza and creating your own glass heart, Norfolk is definitely spreading the love this February. Virginia is for lovers after all. 

Make Your Own Bouquets

While we love a good bouquet being delivered to our front door on Valentine's Day, nothing beats a hand-picked bouquet of flowers delivered personally by our loved ones! Sugar and Grace Co. (located within Selden Market) has a make-it-yourself flower bar and a DIY candle bar. Personalized flowers and a candle? We can't think of a more thoughtful gift! Another place to personalize your bunch of flowers is HortiCulture Design Co., create your own bouquet or gift her with a plant - a gift that'll keep on giving! 

Make it a Romantic Getaway

Four Eleven York

Norfolk's boutique inns and high-end sky scraper hotel suites make for the perfect setting to a romantic getaway! From sunsets around the city together to home made sweets, Norfolk is the perfect place to spend a love-filled weekend.
