Valentines day is almost upon us, and even though we are still in the midst of the Covid pandemic, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate and bring some V-Day love into your home for you and your family.
1.) Decorate!: If you have been following my blog you know how much I love to decorate for every holiday. I find joy in creating pretty, festive and cozy spaces or every holiday. It gives me something to look forward to and since we are stuck at home more during the pandemic, it’s fun to switch up the scenery. You can find some cute Valentine’s decorations at great prices at Big Lots, Michael’s and of course, Amazon!
2.) Valentine’s Cupcakes: Making cupcakes for any occasion or holiday is a fun and easy way to celebrate with the kiddos. If your children are like mine, they love to bake and especially decorate cupcakes. Bake your fave cake flavor and let them frost with pink, white, red and chocolate frosting and top with candy hearts and sprinkles. You can find a nice selection of cake decorations at Michael’s and even your grocery store.
3.) Dress up: I love dressing for the occasion and Valentines day is such an easy holiday to dress for, just add some RED! Amazon has some really cute V-Day tees that you can dress up or down. Click the photo to shop this look. I also have a bunch of adorable red dresses and heart printed pieces you will love on my Valentine’s Day Outfit List on my Amazon Storefront.
4.) V-Day Cards and Crafts: Valentine’s day would not be complete without paper hearts and cards! Crafting is always fun for creative little hands and minds, so spread out some colorful construction paper, markers, glitter and glue and let your little ones create “love”ly masterpieces that you can hang up. Don’t forget to mail some to your family and friends to spread the V-Day love. Nothing more special than a handmade card, especially since we don’t get to see each other in person as much anymore. While your at it, you can get in on the card making action too and share some special hand made cards with your girlfriends!
5.) Love Movie Nights: Pop some popcorn, grab some candy and blanket, and snuggle on the couch with your fam to watch some classic love movies. Some great ideas for kids are of course Disney classics like Beauty and the Beast and Lady and the Tramp. Teens will love 10 Things I Hate About You and Sixteen Candles. You and your partner can find some sweet rom-coms on Netflix when the kids are in bed!
6.) Romantic Valentine’s Day Picnic: I don’t know about you, but I’m not really into going to restaurants these days, and there’s no way in heck I’m waiting in a long line to be seated for a Valentine’s Day dinner. Instead, I am planning a romantic dinner for 2 on my living room floor with my husband (while the little one is at grandma’s). Just spread out a soft blanket, light some candles, play some romantic music you both love, pop a bottle of champagne and just enjoy each other’s company. You can order take-out, do curbside pick up, or cook together! For lighter dining, you can make a charchuterie board and some chocolate covered strawberries. Your only limit is your culinary imagination.
7.) Valentine’s Day Breakfast: Since V-Day falls on Sunday this year, what a sweet surprise it will be to wake your family up to a special breakfast full of heart shaped pancakes, chocolate syrup, strawberries, cinnamon rolls and all the morning yum you can think of. Be sure to put your breakfast goodies on a festive table cloth complete with V-Day paper goods, “Hello dollar store!” I will use this time to give my daughter’s the sweet teddy bears and gifts I got for them. I just love to spread the love!
