Like Suzanne, we don't go out to dinner on V-day. I hate the crowds. We go out the day before or the day after. This year I am doing a Fancy Lovey Tea Party for my family. I bought a bunch of pink plates and teacups from Tai Pan and I am decorating the table with big, glass containers filled with v-day M&M's and chocolate covered marshmallows. We are having chocolate covered strawberries for dessert and sparkling Martinelli's that they will get to drink from my champagne flutes I received for my wedding. I think maybe for dinner chicken pillows and asparagus. They love that. I am the MOST excited about the table. Tule and pink glittery stuff EVERYWHERE! I am SO excited. I am headed out first thing on Monday to buy a white cake stand to decorate with ribbon. YAY!
We start the morning with heart shaped pancakes. I use cookie cutters and spray the inside with Pam and pour the batter on the inside. We use strawberry syrup and real whipped cream.
The girls always get a V-day treat from us. We put it on the front porch and doorbell ditch. They don't know how we do it every year. This year it is a favorite book, a box of chocolates and some sparkly lip gloss.
We always end the evening watching some happily ever after flick. I think this year it will be "Enchanted".
