Valentine’s day can be fun and exciting for some and dreaded by others. I think it’s a day that can be spent with a special person you love or your family. My fondest memory is when my mom and dad came to my college apartment with heart candles and my dad made a heart shaped cake. My family’s tradition was always Valentine’s breakfast tea party. My mom would set the table beautifully and organize everything to have a red/ pink theme. (She was very lucky to have four girls).
Next to the teacups and china dishes was always a little valentine present. Sometimes it was heart socks and other times cosmetics. We never were a big chocolate and flower family. I love the idea of giving something meaningful on Valentine’s Day.
Below are some ideas for anyone that is special in their life.
Chocolate covered strawberries, a must for someone with a sweet tooth. These are so easy to make and delicious.
