Happy Valentines Day!

Here's my FAVORITE DAY again. It was low key this year. I made a Valentine lunch for my sweet hearts. I cut carrots and cucumbers into heart shapes, for a spinach base salad, topped with heart shaped pepperonis and cheese slices to go along with baked pasta also topped with heart shaped pepperonis & cheese slices. I baked a few heart shaped cookies and loaded the table with valentine candy and sweets.

We invited another friend and her kids (my kids BFFs) since her Mr. was out of the country on business, and one of the youth leaders. It turned out to be really hot, so the mid-day festivities included an impromptu water gun fight.

I wanted to do more but have been fighting a sore throat and cold for a few days I had to be satisfied with what I had. I also gave each of the youngers a fresh new plush bear with a red ribbon bow. The youngest especially loved his 'baby'.

Last minute I put together a 'photo booth' for fun pix. I really liked how it turned out and I pulled it together in about 10 minutes.  That was probably my favorite part of the afternoon.

As far as favors...I let each guest take a succulent cutting and replant it into one of the assorted glass mugs and dishes I had, to take home.

It was a lovely I can focus on the upcoming OSCARS and Oscar Soiree!
