8 Love-Struck Recipes for Valentine’s Day

DIY Conversation Heart Cakes

The holidays may be over, but the season of celebration continues to roll on in our home. Two of my children have birthdays in February, as well as my mother-in-law and both of my sisters-in-law. My nephew’s birthday lands squarely in the heart of Valentine’s Day (and trust me, he is a sweetheart).

Balsam Hill is best known for their lovely Christmas trees, but there are plenty of reasons to keep them in mind post-holiday season as well, which we’ll be sharing with you soon. In the meantime, here’s a collection of Valentine’s Day recipes to help you prepare for the big day from the Balsam Hill Pinterest board—be sure to follow for more inspired celebrations!
