A Crafty Valentine's Day Party

Valentine's Day to me is another excuse to throw a party. Sorry, not sorry! πŸ˜‹ But a party to celebrate my guests : my kids, my loved ones, my friends...so a craft party is something we love to host 'round these parts! Kids and grown up love getting stuck into something creative: making your own Valentine's Day cards, a gift wrapping party with your gal pals or simply creating something handmade, with love. Yep, there's nothign we love best than a creative girly bonding session over glitter and glue!

Valentine's Day is 'round the corner, and if you're looking for a quick and simple, yet tasty dessert for your party, or simply to pleasure a loved one; then this is it! πŸ˜‰ This is my go-to quick route when baking cupcakes. The frosting also takes no time at all to make, and no need to get the mixer out! Plus, I find the combination of chocolate and Mascarpone such a marriage made in cupcake heaven...so creamy and luscious! YUM!

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

As part of my Valentine's Dinner party menu that I shared in my previous post ( here ) ; I'm serving pink champagne jello with red berries and cream . Something about jello that evokes 'fun', don't you think? Maybe it's because it's a dessert we associate with kids, and therefore takes us back to our childhood days.  But for a grown-up update on this favorite classic, I added pink champagne and red berries. Which makes a super tasty, not to mention pretty in pink dessert for Valentine's Day ! :)

A Modern Valentine's Day Dinner Party

A Modern Valentine's Day Dinner Party

When you have kids in tow, Valentine's Day festivities take on a whole new meaning (I think parents reading this will nod at this point), and the phrase three's a crowd springs to mind? :) Because of that fact, I've often shared family-friendly Valentine's Day party ideas, recipes and crafts here on the blog.  But this year, since my kiddos are a little older; I fancy a little dinner date with my husband!

Free Printable Puppy Love Valentine's Day Party Kit

Free Printable Puppy Love Valentine's Day Party Kit

Okay, so if you subscribe to our blog feed in the promise of a free printable, you'd have noticed we slacked somewhat for January... January  is not my fave month. It's not an excuse, just how the cookies crumbles...There I've said it.  Between getting the mag ready , fighting attacks of winter colds and sniffles, re-stocking the shops , while doing a blog re-vamp (BTW, not even finished!) = slacking on the freebies printables front. But hopefully you'll forgive me (since it's Valentine's and all *wink*). 'Cause today I have one cute free printable kit for ya!!

Galantine's parties are everywhere! And I LOVE it! Love the fact the Valentine's day has become synonymous with just spreading the love, and not necessarily a couples' thang... And LOVE even more, the idea of sipping cocktails, eating delicious morsels, and just celebrating with your gal pals!! So to help you along, I styled this super simple bar cart. Quick too!
