Valentine Making

Last weekend was our annual Valentine-making session with my family at my sister's house. It's always a fun evening of good food, catching up with each other, and inspiration. My sister and I made Valentines to send, Mom made some Valentines to hang in her vintage shop and my aunt decoupaged hearts, doilies and Victorian ladies onto wooden boxes to sell.

J.'s vintage Valentine decorations . . .

A Valentine gift of white chocolate-covered buttercream mints from my sister. Oh, my, they're good.

The menu included Ham & Corn Chowder, fresh fruit, chips & salsa and dessert. My contribution to the party - Glass Jello. You'll find a gorgeous lay-out of how to make this here. I used blackberry, raspberry, grape and black cherry Jello in honor of Valentine's Day. Beautiful and delicious!

Some chocolate-covered pretzel rods, too. Easy yet elegant. Simply dip rods in melted chocolate, twirl excess chocolate off, sprinkle with sprinkles and lay on waxed paper until they harden.

Happy Valentine's Day!
