Today I'm sharing a little Valentines party I put together for my own girls a couple of years ago before I really entered the party business. This was a fun idea for a party.... my girls' names both start with the letter "M" so we came up with an "M&M Sweet Shoppe" party. Each daughter invited a few friends over for Valentines crafts and some yummy sweets, too.
For the invitation, I decided to created a lollipop-look in the shape of a heart and wrapped in cellophane. We took the invitations around to each of the girls houses to get them excited about the upcoming party. The reverse side of the invitation had all the party information.
These were my first attempt at fondant roses. I guess I've learned a little since then but they turned out pretty cute.
The parfaits were a fun idea, too. I made some red pudding and some pink pudding and layered them in champagne glasses with a little whipped cream on top. I learned through this experience that putting the pudding into cone-shaped icing decorating bags or a ziploc with the corner cut would be the perfect way to get the pudding in the small glasses without making a mess.
Store bought items like these cookies sticks embellished with a little white chocolate candy coating and Valentines sprinkles make party food so much easier and they're pretty, too.
My girls had such a fun time with their girlfriends celebrating the day.
For crafts, I had some felt circles cut into spirals ready for the girls to roll into felt roses. I also had stuffed some mini flower pots with green tissue paper to resemble leaves and the girls then used a low-temp glue gun to glue their roses to their pots.
