Eric and I went out last Friday- helping avoid the crowds, and saving Valentine's Day for something special for our family.
We got the table all ready-- with supplies from the Dollar Store
-Heart plates, red plastic silverware, napkins
-Fancy heart plastic cups
-Tissue paper folder in square in center
-candle holders, candles
-Heart dollies (under plates)
-Mailbox- that I made (instructions here) (only thing not from $ store)
-Gift Boxes- filled with little treats/toys from dollar store
-Heart Shaped tortellini
-Chocolate covered strawberries
-Sushi- for Eric and I
-Heart shaped cake for dessert
My daughter begged for the chocolate covered strawberries, as she loves strawberries (they keep her hair red you know- just ask her)-- she even helped me dip them all- but in the end she did not like them and just wanted plain strawberries! Silly girl
And yes we even ate by candle lightIt was a wonderful night that we all fully enjoyed and we will definitely be doing it again next year.
Do you have any fun family traditions?
