I hosted a Valentine's Day play date and exchange today for Sadie and Charlotte's little friends (and mommies)-and it was so much fun!
I didn't do too much decorating, but I did do these Conversation heart word garlands-which I LOVE.
I cut them out of card stock on my Silhouette and taped them to some thread. Hung them up by winding the thread around some tacks.
Pretty darn easy but with some big impact. (and pretty much free...except for the Silhouette, lol)
I also found some cute red heart plates at the Dollar store-nice! They were for the fruit that wasn't cut up yet. I wasn't on top of my picture taking game I guess. ;)
I made some sugar cookie lollipops-which were a big hit with the kids! They loved them-and they actually stayed on the stick til the end-I was surprised at that. I got the idea here, and used my favorite sugar cookie and icing recipe.
I also used the gals over on kojo designs' tip for displaying things on sticks-wrap up some styrofoam. perfect!
For the mommas, I had to make some red velvet cake balls-in heart form! I shaped them using a silicone heart ice tray I got at target. They were pretty easy to make into hearts-and so cute! and yummy.
I also made stuffed pizza rolls for lunch-but didn't get a pic of those. They were tasty though! A hit with the kiddos too.
Of course, here are our valentines-you've seen those though. It was fun seeing all the kiddos delivering their cute valentines to each other-they were all hopped up on sugar and so excited!
Sadie is so her mommas child-she spent a few minutes organizing her goodies, and even had her kisses organized by color. lol!
