Valentine’s Day has become more kid friendly in the past couple of years, with cute little classroom valentines and clever sayings. I really wanted to take advantage of all the great inspiration floating around Pinterest and popular party blogs so I started planning this party right after Christmas. Although I took some awesome ideas from all of that inspiration, I still wanted to create a fresh, new theme that all the kids in the neighborhood could participate in.
I contacted my friend Nicole from Designs By Nicolina to get an early start on the printables. Nicole created a new design for this theme, keeping the color scheme in traditional valentines colors while adding a modern twist of a red and white striped background with a hint of blue.
Giggles & Grace Designs is always my first choice for custom backdrops and Belinda created a spot on design for this unique table. I found the perfect material to match and made it into two runners for a clear distinction between the “boys side” and the “girls side” ( when desserts are involved, though, it was clear that kids have no problem dipping into the opposite side!).
Heather from Chickabug created these adorable stickers that I used for the lollipop labels, the valentine stations, and seals for the treat bags. The Trendy Butterfly made the customized treat bags that each kid filled with candy leftovers to bring home.
Patticakes made the delicious envelope sugar cookies the kids were enjoying at the valentine station and Sweet Indulgence was the genius behind the gorgeous red velvet heart macaroons ( I may have kept a few hidden for myself…can you blame me?).
The “I cerealsly love you” tags on the individual cereal boxes was a super cute idea from one of my all time favorite blogs Best Friends For Frosting that I just had to re-create, along with the gumdrop Cupid arrows featured on Spoonful.com. Thanks for the clever ideas, ladies!
