put a little love in your february

We’re now less than a month away from Valentine’s Day. Ah, yes … the lovely holiday that many people say was created by Hallmark in order to sell more cards. But isn’t that true for most of the holidays out there? Anyways … whether in a relationship or not, I have always loved Valentine’s Day. It’s the one day where you can go out and show someone — anyone, really — how much you care about them. Or, if you prefer, it’s a great day to sit on the couch, by yourself, with a bottle of wine and some delicious desserts!

Nevertheless, here are five fun, lovey-dovey (not really) things I’m planning to try on or around February 14.

How cute are these? There are many different creative cookies out there for Valentine’s Day, and this post from 2 Wired 2 Tired has a few great examples!

flying heart cupcakes

I love this idea … easily make heart-shaped cupcakes using a marble! Learn how to make these adorable cupcakes from Sugar Swings.

heart-shaped garland

Make some simple and sweet garland using a heart-shaped paper punch and some paint chips! What a great idea from Grace and Light.

According to the author, these are even better than traditional conversation hearts. Check out the post from busymommy!

heart shaped pepperoni pizza

How cute is this pizza? Whether for sharing or for keeping all to yourself, what’s better than a pizza on this (or any) day? I’ve seen heart-shaped pizzas before, but never heart-shaped pepperoni slices. Why not make both? 🙂 Check out the recipe from Mrs. Happy Homemaker.

Do you have any fun things to make, do or eat for Valentine’s Day? Share ’em in the comments below!
