Valentines with a 9-month-old baby was quite fun a couple of years ago. I dressed him in one of his red hoodies and we set to decorating our little basement flat. When I say we, I mean me, and the boy crawling around my feet. With a budget of £5, I got 5 things from Poundland for decorating – a heart garland, love fridge magnets, valentines crackers, heart sticks and the fifth thing I can’t remember for the life of me! Here is that captured moment…
Anyway the table was decorated, and when hubby came home from work, we put the boy to bed at 7ish and then had our Valentines ‘Dine in for 2’ from M&S around my decorated table. It was a really good night, I actually felt like we had gone out!
This year the range at Poundland is quite tasteless, so I’m giving that a miss. We’ve decided on a budget Valentines Day, with handmade cards and decorations. We’ll probably cook something and put it in a heart shape on the plate 😛
Here’s what I found in red and pink shades around the house – tissue paper, spare wrapping paper, buttons, ribbon and embroidery thread. Any ideas what to do with them?
