felt heart DIY

We woke up to a fun surprise this morning. Eleven year old Maude set her alarm super early, so she could get up and play cupid. She set a fancy table for breakfast (with napkins folded into hearts) and sprinkled heart confetti around the house. So sweet! She also left a little gift at each place setting — a friendship bracelet that she made herself.

Breakfast was pancakes with raspberries and whip cream, and raspberry milk to drink. Fun France Fact: out of season fruit isn’t really done here. We were looking for strawberries for breakfast — fresh or frozen — but they don’t seem to exist. Luckily, we were able to find frozen raspberries and they did the trick nicely.

What about you? Do you have any fun traditions for Valentine’s Day?

P.S. — Did you see the cute little felt hearts by Yeri Yun?
