Valentine’s Day Lovebird Party

A while ago, I shared these invitations that I made for my daughters Lovebird themed Valentine’s Day Party.

Well, we just finished the party – here’s a couple of quick pictures!

A banner that says Amour (my daughter and her friends are all Francophones).  And my felt wreath from here.  
This is a banner made with heart doilies from the Dollar Store, white hearts on top, and letters cut out on my Cameo.
The party favours – scented sparkly playdough and confetti popcorn treat bags.

This frame used to be a plastic gold relic from who knows what century.
I spray painted it with Krylon’s Ballet Slipper pink and it was party ready!
I had six very hungry six year olds nating me down to eat, and unfortunately, 
I forgot to check my exposure!  But here is the food table.

My cupcake decorating skills need some work but I love the swirled icing.  To create the effect, smear some gel food coloring on the inside of your icing bag, then scoop in your icing.  It will come out swirled.

                                                   Dipped rice krispies and bananas and nutella between nilla wafers.

The girls table.  If you make it bigger, you can see the cute chevron stickers that I used to
cover the lids.  I used chevron paper and printed it onto sticker paper, then cut and stuck!

Jello Mousse, Taco cups (in wontons), and homemade chicken nuggets.  The kids went nuts over the food. 
I think I will post the recipes if you are interested :) Great party food that kids love and is healthy!

I couldn’t find mason jar lids with holes to arrive before the party, so I simply drilled a hole in the lid of the ones I have.
I wrapped them in lace (a la I Heart Naptime), and placed a homemade chevron circle sticker on the top.
I made pretty much everything for this party.  I created all of the printables myself, using graphics from Jessica Weible and Miss Tiina.  Did you know that you can download a free program called GIMP and it works much like photoshop?  Its easy to learn, and I made my Amour banner, menu cards, favour stickers, and invitations using it.  The baker’s twine from Talking Twine and Trim and the paper straws from Pretty Sweet Stuff}.

It was so much fun and I, or I mean my daughter, had a blast!
