I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day!
We sure did! I planned a friendship party this year for my daughter and her little friends, and it was a hit! We had a breakfast menu, a craft, a game, decorated heart cookies, and passed out Valentines. It was a special day, focused on our love for our friends.
The decorations for the party were simple, inexpensive, and cute. I used these awesome printables I found at Tatertots & Jello, streamers I had left over from my daughter’s 3rd birthday party, and the Valentines decor that was already up in the house. I found pink plates, cups, napkins, straws, and utensils at the dollar store along with a red table cloth. I also cute out hearts to hang from the dining room chandi.
The menu for the party was breakfast themed and thanks to Pinterest and my own imagination, I was able to give it a Valentine’s Day twist.
-Blueberry and banana nut muffins with cute Valentines wrappers and toppers
-Heart shaped waffles with homemade vanilla syrup and strawberries
-Heart shaped cinnamon rolls with heart sprinkles
-Heart shaped turkey bacon
After our craft (not pictured), the kiddos decorated heart shaped sugar cookies. They used frosting, tons of sprinkles, and heart marshmallows. SO fun!
The kids had fun playing with each other in my daughter’s playroom…they especially loved her instruments. We played “Pin the Arrow on the Heart” using straws, tape, a blind fold, and that cute “I ♥ You” printable. Everyone won (winks) and the prizes were glow in the dark bracelets! The kids enjoyed sharing Valentines with one another and we were actually able to get a group photo with almost everyone looking at the camera.
Here is my daughter’s Valentine’s loot… the top photo shows her Valentines from her friends and the bottom photo shows her gifts from mom and dad (I only spent $7 on all of that!).
You can check out the Valentines we made to give our friends here.
Here we are, me and my girl, on Valentine’s Day. Love her to the moon and back.
And after a long day of decorating, cooking, hosting, partying, and cleaning, I sat on the couch and put my feet up… for 20 minutes until I had to start dinner : )
The rest of the evening was spent together as a family. My husband and I made dinner together and then we all snuggled on the couch for popcorn and TV to wind down for the night. Low key and with my family… perfect way to spend my Valentine’s night.
How was your Valentine’s Day? Did you do anything special?
Thanks for stopping by!
See you tomorrow for DIY Diva Thursdays fashion linky party!
