Ten Valentines Day Banners

Valentines Day is coming soon.

It's February, so it must be.





I like Valentines Day for the following reasons:

I get to make a dessert.

I love the color red.

Chocolate.


When I go to the Walgreens to pick up my prescriptions I'll be able to buy tiny Valentines candies for half price on February 15.

That kind of rocks.

I won't even care that they can't seem to get all of my prescriptions refilled on the same day.


Something else I like about Valentines day?

Valentine banners.

Or garlands.

Or buntings.


Whatever.



This one is my favorite.





The lovely Carol made this for me.

It inspired me to make one like it for Easter - except it is Easter eggs. 

I showed you how to make it here.

If you make one you will love it. 

Because it's so dang cute.


I also use my Quickfire Hydrangea garlands for Valentines.





And I try to give a glance or two to my little purple hearts.





But we're talking garlands here.



One year I went a little crazy and made a bunch with a friend. 




If you go here you can find the links for tutorials for most of these.  The ones without tutorials - well you can probably figure them out. 

And that caramel brownie?

You saw that did ya?

Find the recipe here.

Because nothing says Happy Valentines Day like a great caramel brownie.

Well, unless it's a Slutty Brownie... 


I think this year I'm going to make this for my Valentine dessert.


And if I get a wild hare, I'll make either this:

 Or this:

or maybe this:

But I'm perfectly willing to live with what I've already got.




 
Have some fun with your Valentines celebration!

I keep thinking I'll make one this year. Maybe I should turn off this computer and just DO it. For what it's worth-jeannie (BOBB)

Ooh! I've never really thought of decorating with garland from anything but Christmas. You've opened my eyes! :)

Your hydrangea garland is my favorite, Karen. All of them are so cute. I keep getting distracted by that caramel brownie. ;)
