Valentine's day party ideas for your family! You are never too old to celebrate Valentines Day - all ages love the day to spread love. This year, my 8-year-old daughter and I are hosting a Valentines Day soiree and we are sharing all the planning details with you, including a chance to win your own departing gift.
Choose An Invitation
Get started by creating a guest list. Keep it intimate with only best friends being invited. Then make each guest feel extra special by presenting them with a hand-delivered box invitation. We created our own using a heart-shaped paper craft box from Paper Source and embellished it with Valentines décor. Each box was lined with a hand-made note: All You Need is Love! Valentines Day Party February 14th 5:00pm.
Design Your Table
Captivate your guests with a beautifully designed table and leave no detail behind. We used Wilton heartshaped paper placemats, festive IKEA plates, antique colored glasses and red heart-shaped photo frames for cheerful name place cards. The centerpiece, Tree of Love, is a collection of real branches sprayed white and decorated with ivory hearts from Paper Source. Each heart expresses the love in our guest's life.
Entertain Your Guests
Guests will delight in Hugs & Kisses Donut Decorating. Pre-make the donuts using a donut pan and eclair pan. Cut the eclair pieces to shape an X and connect together. Use pink, red and white cookie icing, red and white sprinkles for decorations.
Part With Love
Guests departed with a goody bag from Paper Source filled with IKEA Valentines baking utensils, heart-shaped mold and an apron. We also included a customized CD with the most popular love songs for tweens, including: Love Story by Taylor Swift, Crush by David Archuleta, Love Song by Sara Bareilles and Lovebug by the Jonas Brothers.
