Valentine's Day Party!

Last year since Valentine's Day was on a weekend we had all the kids, I took the opportunity to have a little party for the kids ... and play with all the fun ideas I pinned ;)

I let my oldest invite a friend over and I invited a friend of mine and her 3 kids so we had a full house lol. But she brought a bottle of wine, so it was ok ;)

I made these cute cupcakes with the Valentine's Box mix you see in the stores, nothing fancy, but the kids enjoyed it ;)

I used the red flutes I found at the dollar store to hold some red vines, pirouline, and chocolate covered pretzel sticks! I LOVE chocolate covered pretzel sticks, they are SO easy to make and totally customizable to any occasion. Dip in chocolate, sprinkle with sprinkles, done :)

I also made cake pops!! It was my first attempt so I didn't get the sprinkles on before the chocolate melted. Minor Cake Pop Fail. But they tasted good so that's good enough!

I took a tray, covered it with a napkin, and put out some store bought frosted heart brownies.

I also made some Love Juice! Nearly as cute as my pin/link, BUT the kids liked em and it went with the decor ;)

To complete the setting, I put out some Hershey Kisses and some yogurt covered Whoppers.

The kids had a GREAT time and so did my friend and I ;) With Valentine's Day on a Tuesday this week, I'm not sure what I'll be doing for the kids or for the hubs but I sure have a lot of PINspiration to look at! What are YOU guys doing??
