Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful occasion to celebrate love and togetherness with the whole family. These Valentine’s Dinner ideas are not just delicious but also heartwarming. Celebrate the day of love with a feast that brings the whole family together.
Valentine’s Day is mostly celebrated between couples, but who says it cannot be celebrated with others such as parents, siblings, kids, or even a friend? Celebrate this day with everyone you love!
How we like to Celebrate Valentine’s with the Family?
- Make the day special: Start by serving your family’s favorite breakfast with some reds and pinks. Our fav is this berry bread pudding. Then pack a lunch they enjoy with a hand-written note about why you love them. Make their favorite cookies, muffins, or cupcakes for an evening snack.
- A fun dinner: Enjoy a family festive dinner. Keep it intimate by celebrating at home, and avoid the over-priced dinners at restaurants. Involve the family in cooking and making something heart-shaped.
- Don’t miss the desserts: The desserts can be as simple as chocolate-dipped strawberries or chocolate fondue with fruits around it. Or make some chocolate lava cakes topped with strawberries to end the day on a sweet note.
- Write special notes: Surprise your kids with a heartwarming note when they wake up.
