Valentine's Day Party


Our 2nd annual little tot Valentine's Party was a success! We had a great time, despite some creative differences between our mini artists a couple times, we had a wonderful time! There was even time for mimosas for mommies!! :)

Here is a look at the fun day we had! 
We had a delicious buffet of treats to savor in the morning with our coffee and mimosas! Red velvet cupcakes, a breakfast pinwheel and Oreo truffles brought by our friends to share. In addition to chocolate croissants, fruit salad and of course, my black truffle oil popcorn! Which, at first thought, wasn't a "breakfast/brunch" choice, but oh so good!! 

DIY Photo Backdrop

{The girls had to show Jack how to pose!}



You know I love a photo booth, so of course this year's Valentine's cards had to include another photo! 
This easy backdrop was made with a roll of clearance Christmas paper white side out, streamers and more felt hearts! I threw in some sparkle hearts for fun too! If you missed the felt heart garland post, be sure to check it out & you'll see more felt hearts!!


 Valentine Craft Time

 But before getting our little hands dirty, Jack had to share his Valentines...a homemade apron for all his little friends with a small Valentine card inside!


 

 I'm proud to say that these aprons didn't come from Pinterest, not that there is anything wrong with "Pinspiration" but these are an original design and made with love!! {And a little aggravation too!} I wanted to make Valentine's for the kids that were unique and practical. Making something from scratch, wasn't easy, but I can happily say, they turned out pretty cute! Now, on to the finger painting!




 Thank you Stephanie for bringing over another craft for us to do also! A cute window sun catcher made with contact paper and tissue paper!


After crafts and snacks, we worked up a craving to dance and be silly! 

And have girl talk with out the boys...

 Or just have some more cupcakes?? 

A BIG thanks to these ladies for bringing their little ones & sharing a fun time with us! 


I'll share the how-to for my apron, our final Valentine Cards & blooper photos from the party in another post! They are hilarious! Stay tuned!
