So....I may have gone a little overboard on Valentine's day this year, which is totally unlike me!
I thought that it would be fun to make a bunch of homemade candies and whatnot and get the kids all whacked out on sugar.
I ended up making raspberry truffles, chocolate dipped marshmallows and meringue hearts. I bought the kids a bunch of Valentines-y stuff and did up the dining room for dinner...here is the result.
The paper heart garlands were made by cutting up a cheep book from the dollar store and then sewing the hearts together on my sewing machine. There is something very satisfying about sewing paper, it makes a very appealing crunching sound as the needle pierces the paper.
and yes...that is the selvage edge on the tablecloth...I'm not freaking Martha Stewart.
