Valentine’s Day is this weekend. Are you ready? If not here are some extra tips to help you out.

Theater Night –

Turn your living room into a theater. Don’t forget to include a concession stand.

For this idea you will need some poster board or construction paper, markers, popcorn, candy, drinks and a couple of movies.

Take your poster board and make a name for your theater. Take another piece of board or paper and list your movies and show times. Make extra signs too for the restrooms, exits and concession. For the concession stand list your items and a cost. Like $1 for popcorn, $2 for candy and drinks. Make play money and tickets to give to your guests.

Invite your guests through a hand made card and include the tickets and play money.

Turn your living room into a theater. Hang up signs in the house to tell your guests what time the movie starts and signs for the restroom, exits and concession. If you have a bar in your kitchen you can make this your concession stand or use a table.

When it’s time for the guests to arrive make sure you take their tickets and be ready to serve at the concession stand.

Have fun and enjoy the movie.

Valentine Peanut Butter Cookies –

Make your favorite peanut butter cookies and add Hersey kisses to them when they come out of the oven. It’s the best peanut butter cookies you’ll ever have.

Make a college –

Take a piece of paper and add words and pictures that tell your loved one what they mean to you.

Make a flower pot –

Get flower seeds and a small pot. Decorate the outside and add soil and seeds. The recipient can transplant the flower outside in their own garden to watch it grow all spring.

Be creative this Valentine’s Day and show someone how much they mean to you. A homemade gift can really speak to a persons heart.


Looking to add a little romance to your Valentine’s Day without spending to much money?  Here is an idea that won’t break you.

Have a nice evening with a candle light dinner.

Find a recipe that you’ve never tried before but looks elegant and fun to make. Make it for your special person and set your table with candles in different sizes or shapes. Use the nicest plates you have along with a fork, spoon, knife and napkins. Champagne or wine glasses are great for drinks even if it’s just water or tea. Add confetti hearts or make your own out of construction paper. For place mats use 12×12 decorative paper.

Make a nice dessert to go with it. Chocolate covered strawberries or an inexpensive cheesecake.

Serve your loved one dinner and then end the night with a long walk together, a trip the lake, or a great romantic movie.

Love CD:

Put together a list of songs for your husband, wife or children that have a special meaning between the two of you. Like the first song you heard together,  danced together, songs you played at your wedding.  For the kids you might include songs that you sing together, silly songs or that show them you love them.

Include songs that your loved one will enjoy or just make them a mixed cd of new artists that they might like.

Add a cd cover that you made or print one out. You could also include a play list with the name of songs and artists.

Mirror love notes:

Get some draw erase markets and leave love notes on the mirror everyday. It’s really easy to do and they wipe right off with your finger or a paper towel.

Let the kids do it too. They will have writing and drawing on the mirrors but make sure you tell them only on the mirrors and put the markers in a safe place until you use them next time.

You can keep this going all year long too. Friends and family that visit can add their own special messages to you.

Notes of encouragement and love go a long way.

Pick a location that you want to go for Valentine’s Day. A hotel, park, a restaurant, movie theater, trip, or wherever you want to take your family or loved one too.

Little Italy
