This post is from our Party Tip contributor Dawn…Hello everyone! This is Dawn from Not Just A Mommy and I’m so thrilled to be here for my first post as a Party Tip Tuesday Contributor. I love Valentine’s Day, it’s one of those holidays that doesn’t seem to hang around for months (I’m talking to you, Christmas) and is so fun to get creative with. Today, I’m sharing a easy way to have a little fun with a few friends, a Love Potion Number 9 Playdate.
Rugby striped straws are the new trend in paper straws so imagine my delight when I found them and the conversation heart erasers in the Dollar Spot at Target. I stamped blank tags and tied them on to beakers, of course. After all, they are love potions…
I scored on my beakers from Amazon but any clear class or cup will do. Just attach the tag with a little piece of decorative tape like washi tape or a sticker.
Store bought treats are getting prettier and tastier! I couldn’t believe my luck with these blue cookies, they were the perfect shade.
If I have the time, I love to make cupcakes…but today wasn’t the day. I picked up my favorite ones, but added the heart sprinkles, another score from Target’s Dollar Spot. Don’t be afraid to add them as decoration, I filled the cake stand with them as an added touch.
The best decorating tips are the simplest…you can make heart paper chains and the kids can help. Make a bunch and decorate your space with them! Start with a sheet of paper and trim from the long side, to make 11 strips.
Voila, a lot of bang for not a lot of buck! I hope you’ve been inspired for a little party fun for Valentine’s Day. Remember, it doesn’t need to cost a lot of money to make every and any occasion special.
