Valentine's Day Ideas

So I thought it would be fun to share some our family’s Valentine’s Day traditions. I’d love to hear some of yours as well… for next year!

*I always start a month or so in advance and just put up our Valentine’s decor, So that the house feels Valentiney!

(I made the quilt)





* On the eve of Valentine’s Day, we always “Heart Attack” the bedroom doors of our kids. It usually looks something like this. Easy, but fun for them…


* We make a pancake breakfast (all pink of course) in the morning, including Strawberry milk! I try to dress up the breakfast table with a heartish table cloth and some sparkly heart garland. I took a picture of them for you to see, but they weren’t out ont the table like normal since VD isn’t until tomorrow…


* We usually give the kids a fun valentine. Last year I made paper flowers shaped like hearts, but this year I went lazy and simply bought heart-shaped See’s chocolate for their pillows (about $1 for a chocolate heart about 3-4″ big).

* And last but not least, I buy heart-shaped pizzas and cook them up for dinner. You can buy them at Papa Murphy’s for around $5 each (or various other pizza places)…


So… what do you do???

Happy Hairdoing!
