  2. $40 Gift Card to Amour

Wasabi is even having a special Valentine's dinner you can check out with your gift card. Follow Wasabi Tao on Facebook here, and on Instagram: @wasabidsm.

  4. $50 Floral Arrangement from Wildflower's Pop-Up Shop @ Eden
    Last year Plum Event + Design brought Wildflower to Eden for a special two-day pop up shop, and the result (both visually and via the smells in the store) was a DREAM. If you win, you'll be able to visit the shop on Valentine's Day and receive a $50 handmade bouquet. Orders can also be made over the phone ahead of time by calling Maya at 515.249.8600, and delivery options are available. Follow Wildflower on Facebook here, and on Instagram: @wildflowerdsm / @plumevent.

  5. Makeup Session with Ivy Boyd (value of $75!)
    Des Moines' favorite makeup artist & beauty blogger has been gracious enough to give our winner a full face make up application with lashes (worth $75!). Ivy is one of the friendliest people we've met, is crazy-good with making people feel and look their best, and will be the perfect person to get you all ready for a special night out. Follow Ivy on Facebook here, and on Instagram: @ivyboydmakeup / @ivysavanah.

  6. Rooftop Rental at The Des Moines Building (value of $500!)
    Last but not least, the winner will receive a free rental ($500 value) at one of the coolest new venues in town – the rooftop of the Des Moines Building! You may have seen our news on Instagram about our partnership with The Des Moines Building earlier today – starting this month, we'll be in charge of booking their lovely rooftop space. If you were at our ONE party back in 2016, you know how awesome it is. Industrial, modern, and views of downtown make it the perfect spot for an intimate wedding, rehearsal dinner, or cocktail party. If you win, you'll receive a free rental of the space to use between now and May 31, 2017. Restrictions and Des Moines Building rules and regulations apply – prize only covers rental fee. Follow The Des Moines Building on Facebook here, and on Instagram: @desmoinesbuilding.
