1. Start with the Valentine’s Card.
• Get the little ones involved with a fun craft project. Gather colored craft paper, crayons, glue, lace cutouts and glitter and let the kids show their love.
• If you’re throwing a party, send out heart-shaped invitations.
2. Think pink.
• Swag pink crêpe paper streamers from room center to walls.
• Hang honeycomb hearts around the room and in windows.
• Set lots of pink votive candles around the room. Don't forget to light them.
• Place a single pink rose or pink daisy at each person's place setting.
3. Eat and drink pink.
• For breakfast, serve strawberry- or cherry-filled croissants.
• For lunch, make personal heart-shaped pizzas.
• For dinner, serve salmon or shrimp with pink-tinted rice and pink-tinted butter on bread.
• For dessert, serve strawberry ice cream floats in tall champagne flutes.
4. Give simple “made with love” Valentine’s Day gifts.
• Hand out heart-shaped cookies and chocolates.
• With your daughter, make braided friendship bracelets she can give to her friends.
• For tea lovers, make two heart-shaped labels and write a special message on one. Use doublesided tape to attach both sides to the tea bag string. Repeat for each tea bag, then package all together as one gift.
