Valentine's Day 2012

I know, I know, Valentine's was a week ago, but due to my crazy life, I didn't get to share any pictures or decorations until now, and I promised my Mom she would see them. :) I found lots of great ideas on Pintrest, and loved what I was able to add to the decorations I already had. I made Pumpkin Waffles for dinner which a few of us had been craving for weeks! So yummy, and I will post the recipe soon. :) I found some great  free printables from Pintrest that I made up as 5 x 7's and framed.

Love One Another (scroll down the page, on the right hand side)

I love this pillow that my Mom gave to me, thanks again Mom!

I also was able to use scrabble tiles as decorations, which since I always have at least a few games on hand was a fast and easy way to add some new fun decorations. 

I painted a scrabble tray red, and then spelled Valentine on it.

I bought a small square wood plaque for under $1 at JoAnn's and then painted it black,
glued on some paper and spelled out Love and You in scrabble tiles. Don't you love the quilted heart block? My Mom made that as well.  My Valentine Subway Art printable was found here.

This year I wanted to do a dessert table for my kiddos with some of their favorite treats, but because I didn't feel great, and knew I was hosting Book Club at my house, I did the table a few days later. It may have been late, but everyone loved it!

I hope you and your family had a great Valentine's Day as well. 
My girls handed these out to their friends at school. :)
We cut slits in the pictures above and below their hands
so that they were holding pixie sticks.
