L is for the way you LOOK at me...

I know its' hard to believe but Valentine's Day is just around the corner...LOVE! I am not gonna lie it makes me a little giddy inside to think about a Valentine's Day party at Wyatt's school and even our little play group V-day party as well. ;) (You can read about 2013 Valentine's Play date HERE)

I think it goes without saying when starting to plan a fun day I immediately logged onto my Pinterest...duh! I have been thinking about a fun picture to take with the kids to create a few Valentine's Day cards for a few family members, our little friends, and even for Wyatt's school Valentine's. ( I know, I am so being one of "those moms" but I can't help myself. I do it because I love to...not for anyone else, except Wyatt of course.) 

After FINALLY getting out of the house the other day and to Target I made a quick detour to the little's clothes section. I don't want to purchase something they will only get to wear once so I just snagged a few red items for both kids. Looking around and online shopping I did find these cute items for Sis from Old 

and I couldn't forget some cute options for Buddy as well...

After knowing what we will wear for the big day I need to make sure I have decorated for the special day as well. I know I have mentioned before about having a few small decorations around the house for these small holidays. (You can see our 2013 decorations HERE) It's something my mom always did and I loved it. I think it just makes it a little extra fun...the kids enjoy the decorations and actually have really started noticing and enjoying them. ;) I have a little Rubbermaid downstairs but am always open to new ideas. I found a few cute decorations on Pinterest...most look pretty quick and easy to complete as well.

My apothecary jar is one of my favorite decorating items. I leave it up almost year round and just change the contents. It's so fun! I found a few new ideas for this year. Last year I used sweet heart candy...

I also looked for a few easy snacks to make for the play date. I don't want anything that's going to take lots of time or even ingredients. I think I was successful in finding a few cute ideas.

All that's left to make the party perfect is the crafts. I am going to do a separate post on this. This is already a long post and I have so many GREAT ideas for crafts and little games to play to make the party FUN! Hope you have enjoyed some fun ideas for a LOVEly V-day party! 


  1. I love Valentine's Day decor, those Pinterest ideas are soooo adorable and I need them. All of them!! That card banner is simply amazing! Pinterest has great Vday crafts I've seen lately. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. My mom's friend makes the BEST cookies for each holiday!!!! 3 ingredients- a box of cake mix, 2 cups of cool whip, and 1 egg. They are the fluffiest cookies ever! You can use strawberry cake mix or you could use regular cake mix and then use food coloring to make it pink/red. Anyways, mix the 3 ingredients together, roll into balls. Roll the dough balls into powdered sugar, and then bake at 350 for about 14-20 minutes. They are delish :)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
