Valentine’s Day is only 2 weeks away – what are your traditions?

I like to celebrate the holidays as they come.  I try to decorate my home a bit for each holiday and season.  This year I have been trying to use what I have and maybe purchase one or two more items as I go.

Today I decorated my mantel for Valentine’s Day.  Here is a photo:

008I want to make some throw pillow covers for the pillows on my couch but have not come up with a creative idea that I like.  I will keep searching and I am sure to come across something crafty, red, and cute.

On Valentine’s Day, I make heart shaped pancakes for breakfast.  I will usually make sure we have some sort of red juice and of course strawberries and whip cream for the pancakes.  For dinner I make pizza – and cut the pepperoni into heart shapes and will serve some sparkling cider to drink.

Valentine’s Day would not be complete without chocolate, so for dessert I will make chocolate brownies with heart shaped powder sugar on top.

Each of my sweethearts will receive a little gift from me for Valentine’s Day.  I have not yet decided what that will be — just something simple that says I love you!!!!

What are your Valentine’s Day traditions?

    I am not HUGE on Vday but I like to make it special for the people I love. I make family members little treat baskets with little trinkets and baked goods like cookies or handmade chocolate. For my mothers students I make chocolate lollipops and for friends mini heart cakes. This year I am gonna take it up a notch and make truffles for my staff and other fun little things. I think this holiday should just show you are thinking and appreciate your loved one either a friend, sibling, parent, lover whoever! You def don’t have to be in love to have fun with VDay 🙂

      I am so glad you commented and I totally agree. My husband says this is just another Hallmark Holiday – but I feel loved everyday. 🙂 I love your idea of the little heart shaped cakes – do you have a special pan for them?

        Haha men I know say the same thing LOL. But I am so happy you feel loved everyday, we all shpuld feel that way 🙂 I actually bought a heart shaped bundt pan last weekend which I will use for the holiday. Another idea I have is to buy a heart shaped cookie cutter and bake a sheet cake, cut out pieces and decorate them. My best friend did the same idea with brownies and gave them to the children at his daycare center!

        I like the idea about the sheet cake – I will give this one a try. I have a cookie cutter that will be perfect for this.
