Take Heart!

Yes, 'take heart'!  It's not too late to celebrate Valentine's Day with a few creative and cute details that will make anyone in your family, happy!
These ideas are so quick and easy, you'll be surprised at how nicely they go together, and they'll appreciate your last-minute thoughtfulness!

Here's what you need to create a perfectly 'sweet' Valentine!

Pretzel Rods
White Almond Bark
Wax paper
Sugar Cookies (iced)
Candy Bar
Medium Red or Pink Favor Box
Red Cellophane
Red Ribbon and Tags
Printer & paper

Begin your project by melting the almond bark.  This is easily done in the microwave on low heat.  As it melts, stir the bark until it reaches a usable consistency.  Dip a pretzel rod quickly in the white almond bark, and tap softly on the edge of your bowl to remove drips.  Quickly (before it hardens) roll the rod in a bowl of red and white sugar confetti hearts or Valentine sugar sprinkles until completely covered.  Lay the rod on wax paper to set and harden.  Continue until all the rods are covered and the white almond bark is gone.

While the pretzels are setting up, personalize and print out this cute candy bar wrapper from The Celebration Shoppe! So c-u-t-e!  Cut to fit your candy bar, (I used a large Kit-Kat bar), and tape the wrapper to seal.

Gather up your valentine cookies and your packaging materials.  Put them together in your chosen container, (I used a fries container from Pick Your Plum, but there are also some great DIY container choices on Pinterest).
Wrap with cello and tie with a pipe cleaner, attaching your tag.

Add your Pretzel Rods to a container making a 'bouquet', and then wrap it completely with cello.  Tie with a pipe cleaner or twine and add your tag. Give out to family and friends...or do like I did, and give to the retirement center security guards that watch over the elderly (including my mom!)
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Romance is in the Air...

We all know February is the month to celebrate 'love'.  For yours truly, not only is February 14th special, but the MOST special day is Groundhog Day, which happens to be my anniversary (don't ask!).  Each year we try to do something different and fun, and save the sweet, 'romantic stuff for Valentine's Day.  That way, neither day is 'diluted', and we enjoy each one separately for what they mean to us.  It's worked great so far!

For the rest of the romantics out there, here's a great 'Love Table for Two' idea that you can set up anytime, but definitely for Valentine's Day!  To start, consider using the following elements to set your table.

 ...and VOILA!!  Here's your 'love'ly table!
