Five Valentine’s Day Ideas

I know a lot of people think Valentine’s is a silly made up holiday, but I love it. Any excuse to decorate more with pink and red, to bake sweets, and to see how many ways you can use hearts works for me!

To date, my celebrations have been small but mighty, but I’m betting one of these days I may end up going a little overboard. See, while I love celebrating holidays, my budget holds me back. I’m sure hubby is happy about that, too! lol

Anywho, I’d like to share some of my Valentine’s Day posts with you all….

2. Easy Valentine’s Day Breakfast in Bed (with my tips on how to make a regular breakfast special)


3. How to Do a Heart-Shaped Egg in a Basket Breakfast


4. A Take on Martha Stewart’s Heart-Themed Cupcakes


5. Last but not least, remember to Heart Yourself. I kicked off the Heart Yourself Campaign, which only a couple people participated in, but I received a lot of positive comments about the idea. The campaign wasn’t a raging success but since it touched a couple people, I’ll call it a win. 🙂 I’m not planning to re-do this for 2011 at this time, but if you want to send me a heart, I’d be happy to feature it on the bloggie.

I’ll be sharing Five Valentine’s Day Dinner Recipes to Cook for Your Sweetie next…followed by Five Valentine’s Day Sweets to Bake for Your Sweetie.

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Why or why not?

  1. I love love love this post, and I love Valentine’s Day! I don’t care if it is commercialized at all I’m a sucker for anything with hearts. Plus, it is a fun excuse to take some time out and do something sweet with my husband. 🙂

  2. I love Valentine’s Day and believe you can celebrate it without getting all commercial if you really feel strongly about that. Brad has taken me on nearby trips to Charleston and Savannah the past two years, but we’re staying in Charlotte this year and he’s making me dinner. I’m sure I’ll make a special breakfast. And, we’re going to a Vday brunch with friends on Sunday.

  3. This post is TOO cute! I love all of your ideas. The heart shaped eggs in a basket is my favorite. We usually don’t go all out for Valentine’s day, but like to do little things. I’m totally going to be making Josh up some sweet treats! Sorry I’ve been MIA! I will finally have a post up tomorrow morning

  4. Yes, but in a very mellow way. We use to always see live theatre on Valentine’s Day, that was our tradition, but now we just like to go with the flow and keep things mellow with an easy going date night. 🙂

    Fun series! I look forward to seeing more of your posts on the Love-Day!
