Happy Valentine's Day from Momtrends! This year we have teamed up with Minted and Under the Paper Lantern to bring you gorgeous party ideas for the holiday of love. We created two separate "scenes" to give you options for how to style your own soiree.

Using Paper Laterns for Valentine's Day

First, we hung a bunch of paper lanterns and pompoms from Under the Paper Lantern. Paper balls are so trendy and look oh so pretty. Using a variety of colors and sizes, they were our backdrop for our first scene.


Valentine's Day Decorating with Minted

When setting the table, instead of using a table cloth or runner, we opted for table confetti in the ombre pattern. It's playful and really compliments the lanterns. We used a cake stand to showcase our drink options and attached this super sweet "sips" sign with double sided tape. You can personalize these signs to say anything you'd like, but we kept it simple with the words provided. To give your straws some oomph, attach flag stickers around the straw. We used the extra stickers to add the same flair to our cups.

We did the same thing for our "treats" table. We used two different sizes of cake plates to ensure our table had dimension. It also helps when there's a bunch of people grabbing different items so that nothing falls off or gets spilled. They'd be perfect to hold some of these Valentine's sweets


Apothecary jars are soooo gorgeous and we filled this giant one with lollipops covered in stickers. (Seriously, can we put apothecary jars everywhere from now on?)

Ski Swaps

Save Money at a Ski Swap

Are the slopes in your future? If you want to save money on ski gear, consider a ski swap. A swap is a great way to buy and sell used equipment. Most swaps consist of a variety of gear, from brand new to used skis and snowboards to skis; from poles to boots to bindings and more
