Happy Valentine’s Day :: Last Minute Holiday Ideas

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Some simple last minute ideas to make your day festive but not overly stressful…
-Bake something in a heart shaped pan: corn bread, brownies, giant cookie…and it can be out of a box {wink}.  Dollop some ice cream on top.  Unless it is cornbread.  Your call.
-Cut something with a heart shaped cookie cutter: rice krispy treats, biscuits, mini pizzas, jell-o, pineapple…cheese…cut the cheese…just kidding.  Seeing if you were paying attention…
-Valentine’s Day colored sprinkles
-Scatter conversation hearts on the dinner table for all to trade and eat
-Pin paper hearts on your shirt {very Julie & Julia}
-Tell someone you love them

*I collect holiday baking dishes from the thrift store, after holiday clearance, Ross/Marshall’s/TJ Maxx.  The top photo is a Crate and Barrel pan picked up at a thrift store.  Pretty proud about that one…If you live in the Sacramento area you might just find me at your local Target tomorrow.  I will be the one running into you with my cart with heart shaped chocolates getting shoved down my throat.  If you see me, please say hello…

  1. Pretty images. I need a heart shaped pan. I'll have to remember that when I'm out thrifting. I'm just bagging up the small gifts today I got my kids so they can open them when they get home from school. I'm using brown craft paper gift bags and adding some paper hearts to them. :) Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. LOL at the ice cream on cornbread!!!

    Beautiful photos! I had big plans for taking Michaela Byrd out on a little date this morning, but Natalie got sick last night...so no preschool today. I feel just awful about it because Valentine's parties are such a big deal to the little ones. :(

    So...not sure what we'll be doing today, but it will probably involve a lot of time on the couch. :s

    Happy Valentine's Day, Ashley! :)

  3. Nice Ideas Ashley. Since I hate going out on this {well, all} Holidays I will probably make something at home along with a nice steak dinner.

  4. Nice ideas. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!
