Valentine’s Day is a week away, and Honey Pie Kids is here for it! We celebrate in style, and LOVE being the best stop for the most fashionable children’s clothing in Michigan and online! Why not dress to the nines on Valentine’s Day, and host a fabulous Valentine’s party for all your favorite loves? We have a few ideas to make this party full of love.
A Valentine’s Day party could be one of the most fun to decorate for because white, pink and red are easy colors to find, and there are many options with theme. Check out the dollar store for crepe paper, streamers and circular paper fans that fold out. Add a few glitter hearts and some balloons, and you’re set. Adding some fresh flowers is easy too, because the common, but reliable, carnations in red, pink and white add some frill and beauty to the table without the cost. And carnations last a few weeks, so you’ll have fresh flowers to enjoy later. To add some volume and fluff to a table setting, a lightweight tulle or mesh gives a beautiful, ethereal feel. Valentine’s Day decorations can go light hearted and fun, light and romantic, or bright and modern. Go with what catches your eye and run with it! If you get stuck, even picking one color, and decorating with different shades makes for a great overall effect.
Valentine’s Day game are fun. Conversation hearts make for a fun game of bingo, and there are many free printable bingo cards online. Life-size tick-tac-toe is made easy with an oversized masking-tape (in pink!) criss cross taped on the wall, and small mylar balloons in Xs and Os make for a competitive game of an old favorite. Quick thinking games are always popular with kids, and any time they have to race the clock or other teams the competitive juices will start to flow. Scooping conversation hearts from one cup into another cup only using one hand and a flimsy plastic spoon is a game kids will love. Make an air popper out of a plastic cup and latex balloon, and “pop” conversation hearts into paper cups set up at the end of the table. Label the cups with different points and see who wins! Kids are easy to please, and even a simple game or two will go a long way.
Heart-Warming Food & Drink
Food for a Valentine’s Party tends towards sweet. To start off with something nutritious heart-shaped anything will go quickly. A kid-themed charcuterie board with heart-shaped cheese and turkey adds a novel twist to an otherwise everyday food. Strawberries cut in the shape of hearts on skewers with banana slices or heart shaped watermelon bites makes an easy option to grab and not share germs. When it’s time for something sweet another board with some sweet snacks will be easy to come by. Red, pink and white m&ms are always a hit, and there are so many candies and Valentine’s Day cookies that will fill out the board. Even a fun mix of teddy graham cookies, mini marshmallows, and m&ms would be easy and fun to serve out of paper cups.
Hosting a Valentine’s Day party for the ones you love is easy and fun, and of course always celebrated best in something from Honey Pie Kids. We love our Sweet Wink Magical Rainbow Tutu, and of course anything from Tutu Du Monde is perfecto (we love this dress!) for a Valentine’s Party with friends! Happy Heart’s Day from your friends at Honey Pie Kids.
