Since I will be traveling this weekend, I hosted a mini valentine's day party for my little ones and their friends Feb. 1st :) I kept it super simple and the total cost was under 25$!
Cupcakes: Gluten free Betty Crocker mix (thanks Betty!) for our gluten free friends.
Cupcake Toppers: Felt Hearts with sticky circle back (find in a pack at Hobby Lobby), attach to wooden toothpicks or topper sticks (also found in a bag at Hobby Lobby).
Heart Shape Table Decor - Dollar Tree Napkins cut into heart shapes.
Heart Cups: White Paint Marker + Dollar Tree Red Cups
Snack Bags: Pretty Paperie Printables (my friend Natalie's awesome shop!) + mini baggies. We ended up mailing these packs to cousins as well:)
Felt Heart Headbands: Pack of felt hearts with sticky backs (Hobby lobby or Amazon). Pair two together back to back and hot glue a row full along a stretch headband. Great party favors for the little girls!
Balloon Strand: Tie balloon ends along some twine and hang on the ceiling for a fun and inexpensive valentine chandelier:)
(Mini Table: via Ikea)
Cupcake decorating - set out a bunch of sprinkles in small dishes with iced cupcakes for the kids to decorate before diving in.
Finger painting in a baggie (no mess!). Brilliant idea found here. Gabriel has asked to do this every day since the party:)
P.S. I have teamed up with some of my favorite shops to give away a ton of fun goodies on the IHOD facebook page. Head over to see what's up for grabs today!
