How Many Ways Can YOU Say “I Love You?”
Apr 23, 2010
We recently had a bride come into our showroom looking for favors to coordinate with a really unique theme: Love in 100 Languages. She ended up choosing the Heart Shaped Love Theme Glass Coaster Favors featured in the picture to the left, each with the word “love” in English as well as a couple of other languages, and other love related words. The ladies and I here at the office started gabbing about what a great theme idea it is, which inspired me to write this article.
Here at Little Things, love is [obviously] always the word of the day. And not just in English, either. Alecia, our Customer Service Manager, says “Ana Behebak” to her boyfriend. That’s “I love you” in Arabic. Marko, who works as our Search Engine Marketer, resides in Finland. So coming from him, “I love you” would come as “Minä Rakastan Sinua.” And if we ever need to say it in another language, the desk in our showroom is a glass table top with “I love you” scribbled on it in a hundred different languages.
Here’s ten different ways to say “I love you,” besides in English, and the other two languages featured above:
- Spanish – Te Amo / Te Quiero
- French – Je t’aime
- Polish – Kocham Ciebie
- Slovak – Lu`bim ta
- Gaelic – Ta gra agam ort
- Icelandic – Eg elska tig
- Chinese – Ngo oiy ney a
- Greek – S’agapo
- Hawaiian – Aloha Au Ia`oe
- Filipino – Mahal kita
A great idea to go with this theme would be branding each table as a different language/country. You could use these Amor Glass Coasters or Asian Coasters, and also visit our Irish Theme Section for other great ideas. Of course, we have many more favors available to incorporate with any theme at our website www.littlethingsfavors.com.
TGIF! Have a great weekend, everyone! Lots of love! <3 Kelsey
