A Valentine's Lunch

In our house any holiday is reason enough to bake cookies and make decorations. This year we decided to introduce Miss Gracie's friends to the traditions of an American Valentine's day. In the UK Valentine's Day is for couples. No paper covered shoe boxes awaiting Valentines, no candy hearts or class parties. We decided to have our own party.
Cupcakes, heart shaped cookies and sandwiches, sweet little heart boxes from the craft shop to paint and best of all Valentines! The girls loved the selection of Valentines I found online to print and food always tastes nicer when it is shaped like a heart. Miss Gracie's Valentine lunch may just become a tradition.
