Valentine's Day: Little Love Bug Craft Party!

Share To:

The Little Love Bug party went great yesterday! I think everyone had a great time! I hired my neighbor girls, Kathleen & Christina to help the kids craft, so the moms could relax (or try to at least!) Tables were set up for both the moms to craft, as well as the kids. It was a really easy party to host, as the main activity just entailed pulling out all my craft supplies, picking out red/pink papers, stickers, etc and letting the guests go to work!

My three year old & I made the heart garland and hung it around the house. It is so easy to make. Just find a heart (I used a chipboard one) or draw and cut one to use as a template. Cut out hearts in different papers, punch two holes and string with ribbon. Simple, inexpensive & cute! I’ve been noticing paper lanterns as party decor a ton lately, so I picked a couple up at Pier One (they only had white), and stuck some hearts on them.
What’s a party with yummy treats? Cupcakes are always a must, so I did strawberry with strawberry frosting, and topped them with M&Ms. I also made heart-shaped brownies, scotcheroos (my fave) and had Valentine candy scattered around for nibbling! The heart shaped fruit pizza cookie (Kristi), strawberries & cream (Sarah) & yummy muffins (Kim) all fit right in!

Thanks to everyone who came and I hope you all had a great time!

    Ok, Kim, instead of saying I had a Martha Stewart moment, I am going to say I had a Kim Stoegbauer moment. 🙂 So after reading today’s TomKat blog, I was inspired and actually made Cutter’s valentine’s for his preschool! Thanks for inspiring me!!!

    This is kind of random, but in case you are throwing another Valentine's Day party this year, I just picked up a 12 pack of diet Coke at Target on Monday and the cans have a big red heart printed on them. It is in support of women's heart health programs. They are a quick and easy festive touch. Just thought I'd pass it along. 🙂
