Our Family Valentine Brunch

As with any major holiday, I try to do something special for my family in what little way I can, and
Valentines day is no exception.

Granted that I had 2 hours to prepare, I am very pleased with how our special Valentine Brunch turned out, since my husband and I just came back from a quick overnight getaway the night before, a Heart-shaped pizza (which has become a tradition in our home) was for sure on the menu....

The gist of our Valentine brunch spread

Flowers are from my husbands :-) - my jumping off point

I love these Pink Almond Cakes from IKEA - pretty and yummy!
What is Brunch without some waffles (from IKEA as well) and fresh fruit?
The only thing I really cooked that day, my special Spaghetti
Our Heart-shaped pizza from Papa Murphys

Pink Lemonade is perfect of course
And since it is brunch, and nothing fancy at all, paper plates and paper napkins from Target are in order I think.

I gave the kids a Valentine card and Chocolate scented teddy bears along with their meal. I also used leftover Flamingo straws from Sophia's birthday party and added a lot of Dollar Store Doilies all around the table.

The meal went well and after all the hoopla was gone from the table, my family thanked me for their special Valentine and well, I have this beautiful flowers to remind me of this special day with my family.

Hope yours was happy and sweet my friends! Have a Wonderful Weekend!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...

  10. So beautiful! I had no clue that Ikea had the waffles. Of course, the one nearest me is still a bit far away so I don't visit as often as I'd like. I'm sure your family felt the love!
