The Valentine's Day Traditions Your Favorite Bloggers Celebrate!
We asked some of our favorite bloggers: "How do you celebrate February 14?" The incredible treats, crafts, and sentiments they shared made us anxious for Valentine's Day. Here's to starting a few new traditions this year!
I Make Homemade Candies
These look yummy! Trish of Mom On Timeout has rejiggered her favorite Peppermint Patties recipe in a Valentine-worthy cherry flavor.
I Treat Myself
Heart-shape eats go for single girls, too. Whitney of Whitney Bond makes a deep-dish sausage-and-tomato pizza in a heart-shape pan for her Valentine evening.
I Include My Pet
Why should humans have all the fun? Aimee of Irresistible Pets includes her pup Chuy in the holiday by making him a heart-shape toy as a special February 14 treat.
I Celebrate with My Entire Family
Family comes first, and February 14 is no exception for Jillee of One Good Thing By Jillee. She enlists the kids in food prep, decor, and even printables, all leading up a to a dinner eaten with the whole crew.
We Enjoy a Date Night In
Restaurants are crowded enough on February 14, say Brent and Courtney of Gray House Studio. A romantic dinner is just as sweet (and way less expensive) when served alfresco and featuring music, fancy foods, and strings of lights.
I Make Chocolate Cocktails
Lisa of Snappy Gourmet may enjoy making a chocolate cocktail as much as her husband loves drinking one during the Valentine's meal. This Mississippi Mud recipe features marshmallow vodka and chocolate liqueur. Cheers!
I Do a Whole Week of Parfaits
During the holiday, Beth of The First Year challenged herself to make a whole week of Valentine's treats in a glass. Here's a favorite: Layered Strawberry Jello Cups.
I Prioritize Breakfast
For Courtney of Cook Like a Champion, a decadent Valentine's Day breakfast trumps a flashy Valentine's Day dinner. Hence, Stuffed Nutella French Toast with Strawberries.
I Help My Daughter Throw a Girls-Only Valentine's Day Party
A Cupid Float made with Cherry 7Up and French vanilla ice cream with a literal cherry on top? Yep, we definitely want an invite to the annual Valentine's Day party of Kelly of Eclectically Vintage.
I Make My Own Cards
Ever since grade school, Jennifer of Town and Country Living has returned to the fun of making homemade Valentine's Day cards. She prefers itty-bitty scallop-edge cards that feel just as sweet as the holiday she's celebrating.
I Get Crafty
A jar obsession translates into a beautiful way to display Valentine's Day flowers. Janet of Shabbyfufu welcomes the day with painted mercury glass jars.
I Make Cupcakes with My Daughters
Christina of The DIY Mommy accomplishes two things when she makes cupcakes with her daughters each February 14: She enjoys time with her loved ones, and they all get a treat for their efforts. Her cheat is starting with a cake mix for these cupcakes. The rose-petal frosting is a simple piping trick.
