Frugal Valentine's Day
This year for Valentine's Day we are dining at home by candlelight. I am making a special dinner of roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and homemade brownies for dessert. The children and I will make Valentine Placemats on Thursday to decorate our table. I am using scrapbooking supplies to make these. I have a bin full of stickers, paper, fancy scissors, and other embellishments. I think the kids will have a lot of fun decorating the table for dinner. It will be as pretty as going out to a restaurant, with 1/4 of the cost, no crowds, and better food.
