Love is in the air....Preparing for Valentines Day...

Valentines Day is the perfect excuse to brighten up my home after a gloomy winter.....'s a sign that winter is waning and that spring is right around the corner...

...I have set a dessert tray....

....ready for guests... enjoy an afternoon "pick me up"....

...and a possible "sugar high"...

...but now to decide what to serve...

...on these pretty heart shaped dessert dishes...

...well, of course lots of "hugs and kisses"....

...and maybe a tray of mini cookies...

...along with "fairy bites''''

...and mini cupcakes...

Do you do anything special for your loved ones on Valentines Day?
