Valentine’s Day is not just a day for romance and lovers strolling hand in hand contemplating the stars. At our house it is about celebrating the love we have for each other as a family. That loves extends to our friends and extended family members also. Very rarely do my husband and I disappear for a “Valentine’s Date Night” instead we celebrate it with our children because family is what love is all about. We make cards, special treats and even homemade gifts for each other. Our favorite gifts are craft sticks projects because the options are endless and you can use them in so many different ways. My daughter took the lead already this year and created a sparkly butterfly for her Valentines Day Craft Ideas: Craft Sticks Projects. Continue reading

Valentine’s Day Themed Party

We celebrated Valentine’s Day early this year.

My daughter turned 9 and we decided to have a “Love” themed party. This was an easy theme to do because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I was on a mission to save so we hit the local Dollar Tree. We were able to pick up plates, napkins, silverware, cups and streamers all with a Valentine’s Day theme and a lovely red color.  I paid under $10 and that gave me enough dishes for snacks and cake for 20 people.

To further curb the party spending, I scheduled it for 3:00 PM. This meant I only needed to have light snacks and beverages instead of serving lunch or dinner. I also saved money by baking and decorating my daughter’s birthday cake. You can read about that here.

I wanted to serve snacks that suited both adults and children. For the kids I selected carrots and dip, chips, and pretzels. All of which I bought on sale. For the adults I stepped it up with Baked Brie and Raspberry Preserves and delicious Valentine’s Day cookies. This was my first time making Baked Brie and it was a huge success. I served it with delicious pretzel crackers.

Check out how the party went and see the Valentine’s Day Cookies we made.
