Dress up your table with a flair, and make this valentine meal a memorable one.
Beauty is in details, one small decorative element can add all the glamour needed, for a romantic ambiance . To fold a napkin into heart, will only take 2 minutes of your time. Follow the step by step tutorial scheme:
So easy! You don’t need to be an origami master to energize your valentine table with this beautiful heart. With a will and passion everything can be done, and the most important is your personal touch that makes the occasion memorable.
Choose the paper napkin color to suit the mood you are creating. You can use towel as well, but to have a perfect outcome you need to iron the folds to keep them pressed.
I hope you all get an unforgettable Valentine, pink in your love, white in your heart and gold in your pocket 😉 euhhhh or diamond….

This is the third year in a row we enjoy this beautiful game of love. This year we revisited it as per Nady’s request, who is so proud and happy of what we love and appreciate in him.
The beautiful part of this game this year is that he was teaching his youngest brother the rules of it and he was expressing his recognition to us (mom, dad and brother) through words that were my daily serotonin and immunity dose; lets say i was waiting impatiently for his heart everyday. Trust me you never expect the attention to details and the quantity of emotions kids can express. And yes the recognition to the smallest things you do to them!
It’s so important to tell your children “I love you” everyday. Knowing that they are loved unconditionally, develops their secure attachment to you. Strong closeness to the family will lead no doubt to positive relationships in adulthood and high self esteem.
So the aim of this game is to put the reasons i love him (mainly appreciating the good things he does and expressing my big love and pride) in written words on cutout hearts to celebrate love.
As i always say, many of you stopped celebrating valentines for how commercial it became. Don’t lose faith in this beautiful occasion and teach your children about love in deep and expressive ways.
This year we are hanging the hearts as a garland. Last year we did a frame of love, and the year before it was a wheel of love. You can click on the hyper link to review them.
If you like this game and wanted to do it with your kids, click here, to download the file of hearts to use. Enjoy writing on the hearts the many and endless reasons why you love your children and husband/wife too 😉 It’s not just for kids! Do it to your significant other and let love flourishes in your hearts and homes! You can do it over a week until valentines day comes or even extend it as much as you want to enjoy.
Don’t forget that love is not only words, it should be followed by actions, and the most important the presence. Be present for your kids, in love, protection and service. Happy valentines xx
My PRECIOUS part of me
