Love-ly Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

| Thursday, February 6th, 2014 |

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and my heart is already bubbling over with love–as my head is filling up with adorable ideas for how to celebrate. (SWOON!) Gone are those days of exchanging handmade and store-bought paper cards in grade school, but that doesn’t mean there still aren’t plenty of ways to get a little mushy over the holiday–whether you have a significant fizzer or you’re fizzing solo.

Here are some Ms. Fizz (and cupid) approved ways to feel the love on V-Day.

Create a heart photo installation.

If you’re anything like me, you have a bunch of photos saved on your computer, in your phone, or hanging out in your Instagram account. Print those masterpieces out and arrange them in a heart shape on a wall with double-stick tape. (Looks cute all year round too!)

Host a Secret Valentine.

This is a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with friends. Similar to Secret Santa, choose names, then pick a gift or plan a special “date” for your valentine.

Put your heart into the gift wrap.

Show how much you care by decorating your own wrapping paper. Check out a few ideas here and here.

Make a love jar.

If you’re feeling especially cheesy, consider creating a “love jar.” Fill a jar up with little slips of pink and red paper that list out various things you love about your valentine.

 

Whip up something chocolate.

Because what would Valentine’s Day be without chocolate? (Answer: Not as delicious, that’s what.) For an added bonus, make your treats just a tad “healthy.”

Warm, Flourless Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz. 70% dark chocolate

  • 1 Tbsp. orange zest

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 overripe bananas

  • ¼ cup roasted sweet potato

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 whole egg

  • 3 egg whites

Mix up a love potion.

The best way to say “I love you” is with something fizzy.

Raspberry Chocolate Kiss

Ingredients:

Fill a shallow dish with simple syrup to cover the bottom. Place crushed cookies into another shallow dish. Turn over a martini glass and coat in the simple syrup, then immediately place it in the crushed cookies to coat the rim of the glass. Crush raspberries in a cocktail shaker with a muddler. Add simple syrup and muddle again. Add vodka and Ocean Spray® Cranberry Raspberry sparkling juice drink. Fill with ice. Shake until chilled. Strain and serve.

XOXO,

Ms. Fizz

    this specific suject matter, your perszpectives are generally fairly radical.
    However, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe too your whole suggestion, all be it exciting
    none the less. It seems to me tat your comments are generalloy
    nott completely rationalized and in fact you are generaly yourself not totally convinced of
    your argument. In any event I ddid enjoy reading through it.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men
    and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this
    during my search for something concerning this.

    site, this webpage is actually remarkable.

    the go. The SMS contains the word Merry Christmas which was sent to Richard Jarvis from Vodafone through
    a handset device model Orbitel 901. Apparently,

    Unfortunately for cheaters who use anagram solvers,
    the tool would only allow them to have lists of words they’re able to build and not necessarily say
    to them where to place it. Note to my fellow teachers: implement the appropriate cellular phone restrictions during test-time.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much
    more useful than ever before.

  17. I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It seems like some of the written text within your content are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Thanks

  18. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own
    a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a
    lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it,
    any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is
    very much appreciated.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get
    setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
