A Valentine’s Day Party Favorite

Valentines Day parties for kids are my favorite.   Holly, of Paisley Petal Events, planned this kid’s Valentine’s Day party last year  I just adore the cake, decorations, beautiful desserts and of course the printables! (Our I Heart Valentine’s Day collection).   Holly displays wonderful treats and also shares fun ideas for a kiddie Valentine’s Day party….

 

Holly set up a table for the children to make their own Valentines Cards.  She hung homemade poms over the table that she made from coffee filters (LOVE coffee filters!)

 

Thanks for sharing with everyone Holly – this was just the perfect Valentine’s day party!

We used mixed glassware for our main serving and display pieces. Apothecary jars of varying heights and styles were displayed at the back of the table, along with a large, glass beverage-dispensing jar. Wrapped boxes with ribbon wraps were used to plate some of the small finger desserts.

Fabric from Ikea was used as the table backdrop, and we made some Pink Paper Plate polyhedrons (DIY tutorial here) and hung 3 (equally spaced) above the dessert table. These look great and are a fun project for kids to help with too!

We layered the large apothecary jars with pink and white cotton candy (a cheap filler that looks cute!) and hung red heart sugar cookies from the jars with pink satin ribbon. (From Allyson Jane)

Hershey Kisses were labeled with circular stickers on the bottom, and mini Hershey Chocolate Bars were customized with printable candy bar wrappers.

We made red & white layered desserts served them in mini trifle cups. Red Soda Bottles were decorated with the water bottle wraps & striped paper straws embellished with party flags, and bright red punch was displayed in the center of the table.

We baked swirly pink meringue hearts and displayed them on short wrapped boxes alongside fabulous sugar cookies from Allyson Jane.  We embellished the cookies with big pink satin ribbon.


Red and pink candies were displayed throughout the table in table in apothecary jars embellished with party logos hung from satin ribbon. For party favors, miniature glass candy jars were filled with red candies and decorated with a circular logo on the lid!

Our heart topped favor box template is included in the printables… it is SUPER cute and easy to assemble!

For more grown-up parties: try embellishing mini wine bottles with paper instead of red soda! Looks adorable too…

We used printable food labels from our design collection to customize the dessert table items. Cupcakes were topped with fondant hearts and sparkling sugar, and heart shaped and circular lollipops were stuck into a paper wrapped styrofoam box.White, Pink and Red Chocolate Truffle Pops were placed in cute liners and embellished with hearts from our printable collection.  We set these on a tray of heart shaped sprinkles.

Pink and red heart shaped fondant toppers were used to decorate a simple white cake, and pink and red macaroons were displayed on the low wrapped boxes.

DIY Stacked Fabric Flowers were put in a glass vase and displayed on the dessert table, and a heart garland was hung in a scallop shape from the front of the table. We punched the hearts out of the printable papers from our collection.

Printable valentines (also from the collection) were assembled with their matching envelopes, and we decorated favor boxes with striped twine and printed hang tags

The children’s table was covered with a solid pink fabric and the chairs were covered with the Ikea fabric and tied with Red Grosgrain ribbon. Heart Favor Boxes were created from the template in our printable collection and displayed on the kids’ plates.

Printable “cootie catchers/fortune tellers” were assembled and placed on the children’s table (The kids loved this!)
