This Week’s Features
Linda from A Labour of Life is still writing the following section and choosing this week’s features.
Once again, another week has come and gone. I am now almost at the end of January and still have not completed one craft yet, YIKES. On a positive note, I just purchased all the fixings for a Valentine’s Charcuterie so maybe I will share that this weekend lol.
As I said last week though, when my life gets overwhelming, I seek inspiration from all of you. Hoping to get some fun ideas this week with Happiness is Homemade 464.
Come dazzle us with what you are making, baking or creating this week.
First up is a cool Valentine’s gift idea for the cook in your life. The Painted Apron tells us, “This month I’m making gifts for the cook or chef, his and hers, Valentine and Galentine! They consist of a pot holder filled with a kitchen utensil, a towel, chocolates, hand painted Valentine cards, a recipe and heart cookie cutters tied on with ribbons.”
Valentines Table Setting
And surprising literally no-one who attends my blog hops, a Valentine’s table is my next feature. Anne’s Entitled Life has not only sage advice but also a little table inspiration for the Heart Day.
Instead of spending a lot of money on Valentine’s Day, why not celebrate at home with your special someone or special someones! The kids loved to be included in holidays. Another idea is to have invited a few couples over and have a Valentine’s Day dinner party.
If you are looking for table decoration ideas for a special Valentine Day dinner, lunch or party, check out this Valentine’s Day Tablescape idea.
Anne’s Entitled Life
Red Velvet Waffles
Our Tiny Nest was truly inspired this week. Taking a red velvet craving and turning it into a very tasty Valentine’s Day breakfast treat. “With Valentine’s Day approaching, I was in the mood to bake something red velvet inspired. These red velvet waffles are so indulgent and are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or anytime you just want to spoil yourself or someone you love. The best part, they are made with red velvet cake mix and topped with a homemade cream cheese whipped topping you can prepare ahead of time.”
Bake and Decorate
This next feature combines my love of baking cookies and entertaining/party Planning. How fun is a Valentines Day cookie decorating party. Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate walks us through all of the steps of the Party.
Dollar Tree Hearts
My final feature this week (and this month actually) is from Creatively Beth. She is sharing the most adorable buffalo plaid heart created with Dollar Tree supplies. How could I not feature that, right?! Pinning this not just to our Happiness is Homemade feature Board but also to my Dollar Tree Valentine’s Day Craft board. A double win from a pinning point of view.
