This is not a celebration that I personally enjoy. It has been over 15 years since I have gone out on a “date” on Valentine’s Day. I simply refuse to deal with exorbitant prices, mediocre food, pretentious service and crowds.
I prefer to celebrate this day with a special dinner with my family or hosting a fun evening with friends.
Here, a few tips and ideas on making this celebration a fun, classy, memorable (without breaking the bank) and of course red & pink.

Make breakfast special (and healthy) for the whole family. Even though you know I LOVE color, I try to avoid artificial coloring when possible.
SNACKS & SURPRISES.

This is what I am talking about!
From simple flower arrangements to dipped pretzels and sexy food & drinks (try a “Fraise Royale” or any of these fun cocktails instead of plain champagne; you can make your thematic evening entertaining and delicious with a modest budget.
Who knew grilled cheese sandwiches and Caprese salad would look that good?
