Valentine’s Sweets, Treats and Ideas

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to make treats for.  Sweets and treats both simple and elaborate can be used to show love to those around us.  The simple color palate of red, white and pink can be adjusted to feel charmingly old fashioned or stylish and modern. 
I’ve gathered a few of my favorite sweets, and then also some of my favorite “treats” from a variety of lovely shops to give you a bit of inspiration for Valentine’s Day.
