Valentines Day Traditions

As a family, we say "I Love You" everyday, but on Valentines Day we go all out. Our favorite Valentines celebration took place a couple years ago. The children made individual pizzas for each of our family members.
They were, of course, shaped like hearts. The kids even cut each pepperoni into heart shapes. They set the table in our best dishes and used my crystal to serve "love drinks".


To make your own you will need... red heart shaped ice cubes made of cranberry juice and pink star shaped ice cubes made of pink lemonade. We used the silicon shaped ice cube trays from Ikea but you could do this with regular ice cubes as well. Be sure to place the ice in your drinking glasses then pour sprite or ginger ale over the top. The ice melts into the soda and makes a beautiful, pink "I love you" drink.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day,
Very Verdant
