Valentine's Day is one of those days when most folks go out for a romantic dinner. Not us. We'd much rather stay in and create our own fun. This year, our daughter Katherine has invited her boyfriend Colby to have dinner with us.
We've decided to repeat what we did last year, since we all loved it - Fondue Night. We'll have cheese fondue with apple and bread dippers to start, and then steaks and chicken and a tossed salad. For dessert, the fondue returns - this time with chocolate. We'll dip cheesecake, strawberries, marshmallows covered with crushed Oreo cookies and whatever else we can think of.
Katherine asked me if I would do a special table decoration for that night like I did last year. Isn't it great when your kids notice the effort you put forth to make things special? One of the items for the table will be these treat bags. I first got the idea at stamp club this month, and changed it up just a bit to fit the stamps I had. The project uses the Sizzix Top Note die, which I absolutely love. Inside each treat bag is a cello bag filled with goodies. Some are Valentine gum balls, and some are Hershey and Reese's hearts. Yum!
