Today’s post is for the busy gal about town who loves to get things done (in style of course). What if I told you there is somewhere you could get all of your Valentine’s day to-do list done at once? Well girlfriend, I hope you’re sitting down for this ’cause I’m about to show you how to kiss running all over town for this and that goodbye. Let’s narrow it down to a one stop shop. Follow me as I prepare for the holiday in Utica Square…
First things first: a girls gotta eat! Kick off your day at Queenie’s in the heart of Utica Square for their famous breakfast quiche or grilled cheese. This darling little cafe is a Tulsa staple and the perfect way to fuel up for your errands before you get down to business. After breakfast, walk across the way to the Snow Goose and choose from a wide variety of unique cards to give your special someone. Hop across the street and say ” I love you” with one of Glacier’s signature heart boxes of chocolates! Did you know they were named one of the top 10 chocolatiers in the nation? Talk about the best of the best for your boo thang! 😉 They have an entire wall of different boxes to choose from. No matter what size or pattern you choose it’s what is inside that you can be sure will impress. After you pick the box, choose what chocolates you want to include. I recommend the peanut butter honey, cookies & cream, and the strawberry balsamic. Then swing by Suite One and pick out something cute to wear on your date or out with the girls. Their price points are so reasonable and the selection is always on trend- I love it! Last but certainly not least, lets make sure you have a good hair day for Valentines day shall we ladies?? Treat yo’ self and book a blow out appointment at the Utica Ihloff Salon. Sit back and relax while someone else does all the hard work. And while you’re on your way out of the square be sure to stop and pick up a vday pupcake for the fur baby in your life at the Dog Dish. Marley lives for these pup cakes and he only gets them on special occasions.
Ideas for Valentine’s Day dinner:
Polo Grill : this is my top choice for Valentine’s day dinner. I might be biased but, this is my favorite dinner spot in all of Utica Square. It holds a special place in my heart because it is the first place Morgan took me on a date in Tulsa. It is also where we held our rehearsal dinner before our wedding. The atmosphere is quaint, romantic, and swanky. This atmosphere is second to none. Don’t leave without getting the ooy gooey cake. It is actually to die for and the service is unparalleled.
Stonehorse: Their pizzas are yummy and the tenderloin paired with goat cheese is incredible. A great choice in Utica Square.
Flemings: For a fabulous steak head to Flemings. I recommend the sweet chile calamari for your appetizer it is yum.
Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation for any of these restaurants. Spaces are limited and everyone wants to be at the square for Valentines day.
What are your plans for the big day? Comment below and let me know! I’ll be scurrying around Utica getting my errands done. But whatever you’re doing or wherever you are shopping, I hope your spending the holiday with people you love <3 .
