Happy Valentine's Day!
For the last few days, we've been posting romantic, sweet and beautiful ideas for Cupid's holiday. Check out the recipes, decor, activities and gifts we found, and tuck them away for next year's celebration.
Idea #1: Freeze strawberry or raspberry ice cream in a 9 x 13 cake pan. Press a heart-shaped cookie cutter into the ice cream and serve as part of a special Valentine's Day dessert with brownies or chocolate cake.
Idea #2: Invite your sweetheart to an indoor picnic. Set up comfy floor cushions, a plaid blanket, a bottle of wine, and finger food, like fruit, cheese and chocolate.
Idea #3: Make breakfast extra special with heart-shaped bacon.
Idea #4: Are you hosting a Valentine's Day party? You don't have to stick to heart decorations. Try these different decor ideas.
Idea #7: Make your own Valentine's Day cards. Martha Stewart has some unique, easy-to-follow card crafts.
