A Sweet Cookies & Milk Valentine's Day PartySaturday, January 21, 2012C Riches
One of my resolutions this year is to create simple but totally cute parties that can be easily achieved by anyone with the simple use of some fab party printables!
So the idea of a "Cookies and Milk" Valentine's Day Party seemed really appropriate to showcase Bird's Party latest Sweet printable party collection for Valentine's Day!
Valentine's Day Party Ideas - Pink and Red Cookies and Milk Party : Party Design, Printables and StylingI wanted to create some cute, playful Valentine's designs suitable for boys and girls of any age, (or even grown-ups) so the addition of browns in the designs helps to balance the pink and girly side.
The beauty of this theme is that I was able to use props and decorations I already had at home, like the fabric backdrop, a pink sheet from my little girl's bedroom as tablecloth and the pink crepe paper pomanders I created last year for a bridal party (tutorial here).
Valentine's Day Party Ideas - Pink and Red Cookies and Milk Party : Food and DrinkThe food was simple but tasty - Homemade choc-chip cookies and chocolate bark cupcakes, pink meringues from my local bakery, heart-shaped candy sours and mini chocolate bars, and off course milk!
The cupcakes were decorated with the heart cut-outs and cupcake toppers from the collection and displayed inside a brown gift bow filed with pink draguées. I then used the lid of the box to prop up the milk bottles and candy jar.
Valentine's Day Party Ideas - Pink and Red Cookies and Milk Party : Party Favors and ActivitiesSince this was a milk and cookies party, the favors had to be inside a milk carton favor box! I filled mine with the heart-shaped candy sours, but some yummy milk-bottle sweets, chocolate or home-made cookies would also make for a really nice party favor or gift for a loved one!
In addition to the milk carton favors, guests can take home cute mini candy bars wrapped in a sweet candy bar wrapper!
The printable collection also includes mini Valentine's Day cards and matching printable envelopes, so the guests can have fun writing to each to each other or playing secret Valentine!
