It is hard to get all of your friends together on any kind of holiday. This year a few of my friends that are also moms got together for a Pre-Valentine’s Day coffee and tea party. I put this together to celebrate our friendship and to let all my friends know what they mean to me. Being a single mom is difficult and I’m glad I have friends and family that are also moms, stepmoms, legal guardians, godmothers and the like in my life to help keep me sane. I wanted to do something special that didn’t surround a birthday. I wanted it to be just-because but also centered around the upcoming Valentine’s Day festivities. So I treated all of the special people in my life to a Pre-Valentine’s soiree with a little help from our friends at Shari’s Berries.
I don’t know if anyone realizes this but a long time ago I used to work at a call center that sold not only flowers but also Shari’s Berries. I learned so much about the product that even though that was a long time ago throughout the years I ordered Shari’s Berries for my loved ones. My dad’s favorite item are the chocolate covered cherries. They gave us a variety of items to try out but on my earlier purchases I can say that I always thought the fruit was very juicy, large and tasted fantastic. For this particular evening we tried out many items from their Valentine’s Day collection. Items such as:
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Valentine’s Cake Pops
Ladybug Cake Pops
Chocolate covered Oreos
Dark Chocolate covered Oreos
Assorted Cake Pops
We had them beautifully displayed in the beginning prior to eating. It was almost like heaven on earth and we got to indulge with the kids in not just coffee and tea but also appetizers, desserts and of course chocolates and confections from Shari’s Berries.
Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers but also friends and for many of my single moms you don’t have to celebrate it alone. Cheer up a friend with Shari’s Berries or spend time with the kids and have a play date with other single moms.
