A Sweet Menu To Celebrate Sweetest Day!

A Sweet Menu To Celebrate Sweetest Day!

While the American holiday of Sweetest Day often comes off as Valentine's Day in October, it's actually a day to recognize the needy, orphaned and sick. Get together for a sweet meal and help raise donations to help out loved ones or even total strangers.

Sweetest Day has turned into a romantic holiday over the years but it's mostly about recognizing those who are often neglected by society. Often celebrated with candy and sweet foods, we've put together a sophisticated meal planner for you to sit down and enjoy all the sweetness in life!
