Whether you are having your girlfriends over for a single girl dinner or cooking something special for your sweetheart, there are a few simple ways you can dress up your food for the holiday to make it extra festive.
From decorating and playing with your food to spelling out how much you care with cookies, these ideas are super cute and so easy. No extra skill required and your Valentine will be impressed with how you dressed up not only your dinner table, but your food too!

Strawberries are the easiest thing to shape. Simply cut off the tops then slice them in half length wise. I love this idea for fruit kabobs. You can dip them in melted chocolate for a fun dessert or sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
Dressed Up Drinks

It's easy to create a drink topper or wine charm for Valentine's Day, but I especially love this DIY felt topper. Great for a party to use as a place card or you can leave out the name if it's just a dinner for two.
Play With Your Food

Melt some chocolate and lay down a piece of wax paper. Using a piping bag, pipe a few Valentine's Day words and symbols with your melted chocolate. Once they are dry, lay them on top of your cupcakes for a pretty, unique touch. Printable toppers are easy too, but what can be better than topping your chocolate frosting with more chocolate?!
Say What You Feel

Nothing says "I Love You" like a batch of homemade sugar cookies. This is an adorable way to really say how you feel! Go crazy with icing and sprinkles. The more dressed up the better!
Little Touches to Every Day Foods

I love the idea of grabbing red and pink edible markers and adding cute hearts to every day foods you might be serving at dinner. These sugar cubes can easily be dressed up with little hearts for an after dinner coffee or if you are serving hot chocolate, grab a marshmallow and draw a big heart. Put it on a stick for a pretty stirrer.
