I decided to do a pink/heart/Valentine theme for Dylan’s party this year. Partly because she loves all things pink and partly because I knew it would be super easy. Win win. I did just a tiny bit of crafting and mostly slapped up dollar store doilies around the house and called it a day. Here are some pics from her party!
I feel like I cheated myself out of a fun card-making opportunity but I just went the easy route this year and did free e-cards from Paperless Post.
Super cheap and easy goody bags- oversized lunch bags, cut along the edge with decorative scissors and secured closed with some washi tape (my current obsession!). Inside: the girls got hairbows from Forever 21, heart stickers, a few other little random hairbows, and some fruit snacks and mini m&m’s (Dylan’s favorite special treat). The boys got star stickers and a matchbox car inside their along with the yummuy treats.
Two child-sized tables were covered in art paper and topped with crayons, cards, stickers, and doilies to color and decorate.
We chose to do her party during “brunch” time so the food is simple: cheese and crackers, sausage balls, fruit, cranberry/white chocolate scones, and cake. The cake is my best friend’s mom’s recipe. She made this cake for Stephanie every single year on her birthday and I might have to do the same for Dylan….it is SO good. I will check and see if they are ok with me sharing the recipe!
Somehow I missed getting a photo of all of the heart garlands across the ceiling….which was of course my favorite decoration. I might have to put them up again just for a photo. You can see a small bit of one of the strands in the photo below. We had four of them that went across the living room!
We made Dylan a playhouse for her room….stay tuned for a post with photos of it!
