There are two types of Valentine's Day you can celebrate –– one that is low-maintenance yet still filled with cute sugar cookies, some flowers, and perhaps something special for dinner.

And then there is what Pinterest thinks you should do on Valentine's Day: An entire 24 hours filled with only heart-shaped foods, shades of red and pink, and the most elaborate snacks and meals your heartstrings can handle. It's up to you to decide how far to go; Pinterest is egging you on.

Here's how to celebrate Valentine's Day according to Pinterest:

...It's time to focus on the most important part of Valentine's Day –– the food situation. For breakfast let's start with eggs.

Wash it all down with a delicious drink:

Until dinner you will only be eating candy and dessert. Everything you consume has to either include a heart or be red. Let's start with cupcakes:

But you have to save room for these cupcakes, too:


And make sure to have some red fortune cookies with cute notes on hand for the office or school:

After you've had your fair share of treats, it's time to think about dinner. While you might be tempted to make a steak or have some oysters, Pinterest knows better.

This soup is a great first course:

Followed by some cutie-pie pizza to share with your sweetheart:
