Valentine's Day Breakfast Ideas

13 February 2013

I don't go too crazy for Valentine's Day.  This year I hosted a valentine card making playdate (see post below)for my dauthgers.  Yesterday we made valentine's to give to their preschool friends. We also put together small goodie bags for my girls to give their classmates on Valentine's Day.  This year I will be giving my girls painting accessories (rollers, brushes, cups, etc...)I found in the dollar bins at Target and a Merida (Brave) doll.  I will also make them a special heart shaped breakfast!  I thought I would share with you some of the heart shaped breakfast ideas/yummies I found on pinterest.  Each Valentine's Day breakfast idea I chose is easy to make at home.

I tried out a new "app" called The Inspiration Board to make this collage.  Check out I Heart Naptime's blog to learn more about this app and to participate in her The Inspiration Board Launch Party.  She is giving away great prizes!!  

How will you be celebrating Valentine's Day with your little ones?  Or big ones?

Valentine's Day Party

04 February 2013

I love doing fun things for my girls!  Any chance I get to style a little party or playdate for them, I jump at the chance!  So to celebrate February, the month of love, I decided to throw them a Valentine's Day card making play date!  Here are some pics...
Kids table.  Fully equipped with heart stick centerpiece, heart shaped glasses, heart shaped ring, conversational heart bucket and heart alligator clapper!

Here is a picture of one place setting at the kids table.  One of my favorite little extras of the party was the red heart ice cube in the milk trick.  It looked so cute.  I didn't get a picture....of course.
The dessert table was simple, sweet and cute!

The dessert table had strawberry  cupcakes, heart shaped chocolate chip cookies, strawberry cookies and some Valentine's Day candies.  Each child filled a goodie box with lollipops, heart shaped chocolates, marshmallows and sixletts.

The girls had a blast decorating paper hearts with foamies, stickers, felt stickers and conversational hearts!

We decorated sugar cookies with icing, sanding sugar and sprinkles!

The children decorated cards with rhinestones and stickers...but...I don't have a picture of that.  

Overall, the play date was a huge success.  Everyone had a fun, fun time.
