Valentine's Day Family Fun...at Home
At this point—we all know that Valentine's Day is not just for lovers.
We believe it is a day to celebrate all the loves in your life...little ones included. With that in mind, we dreamed up a fun day at home—what to do, eat and wear...starting with a Cupid inspired scavenger hunt that's quick, easy and perfect for a breakfast time.

This year Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday. In our books—that's the familiest of family days, which makes it the perfect time to celebrate Cupid's arrow as a family, with a fun and festive fondue meal.
Here are a couple of our favorite fondue recipes!
We love this easy, cheesy recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe that keeps it classic and sans wine! Click HERE for the recipe.
Vegan Friendly Fondue (no cheese)
If you're trying to skip the cheese or need a vegan option for dietary purposes, Yummly has the fondue for YOU! Click HERE.
When it comes to kiddos, nothing beats chocolate fondue. Most adults agree. Satisfy your sweet tooth with this simple recipe from Chelsea's Messy Apron. Click HERE.
AND, if you've yet to purchase the perfect Fondue Pot—we love this classic white version with traditional colorful forks from Sur la Table.
For your DESSERT BAR, this is a fun time to let your kids help make decisions and join in the fun. It's also a good time to let your local grocery store bakery and candy aisles do the work for you (aka here is a list of "no baking" required options!)
VDAY Candy Corn
