Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's day is just around the corner and why not celebrate with some delicious delectables!

This gorgeous dessert table comes from Amy Atlas.




Valentine's day is a great excuse for a spread of girly barbie and ballerina pink hues, but these desserts could be made to fit any color scheme! We especially love the macaron tree.

Speaking of macarons, they seem to be everywhere. Don't you just love how effortlessly elegant they look? These Parisian delights can be created in a multitude of flavors and colors and they're perfect for parties- or as a special snack for your sweetheart. If you're adventurous enough to make them, Bakerella offers a great tutorial on making macarons with the French mastermind behind Tartelette.


If you'd rather have someone else do the dirty work- check out Williams Sonoma...


With flavors like pistachio, raspberry and espresso- they're bound to make a hit! How sweet would these be at a bridal or baby shower?

Of course, it wouldn't be Valentine's day without some chocolate. Chocolate covered strawberries are the way to every woman's heart... probably because we all know that chocolate calories don't count when you're eating fruit. How festive do these look?


You can make these ahead of time or make it a party and let your guests create their own! If you're really serious about your chocolate, you can get a fountain. We found this one on Amazon.

Chocolate fountains have been frequenting wedding receptions, but who says you need a party to smother your favorite foods in chocolate?

No matter what you do (or eat) this Valentine's day, we hope that you find yourself in the company of the ones you love.
