You can simply head to your local grocery market where youll surely find cookies of all kinds packaged and ready to be bought. This is a perfect idea for those classroom parties for which youve been asked to supply treats. Most often these are simple sugar cookies decorated with all manner of Valentine decorations - from frosting to sprinkles. This certainly makes any parents job easier; you can just pick up a couple of trays of Valentine cookies and youre on your way with cookies that will surely please every picky eater. Of course the bakery is another place to find your Valentine cookies. Here youre likely to find a more high-end cookie with better quality ingredients. If you are presenting the Valentine cookies as a gift - or bringing them to someones home - this is a great place to get them. The bakery can wrap the cookies in a tray or box them in beautiful wrapping. Either way youre giving a lovely - and sweet - gift. There are even online resources where you can find unique and creative Valentine cookies that you can box and ship to whomever you choose. Some companies will even do personalized messages on large Valentine cookies - from I Love You to Will You Marry Me?. This is a wonderful personal gift for the cookie lover in your life.
Serve a wide variety of flavored decaffeinated teas as well as an assortment of flavored hot chocolate. Use tissue paper and pipe cleaners to create vases full of flowers for the tables centerpiece. You can also cut out hearts from paper and use the hearts as flower peddles glued to Popsicle sticks. Additional Valentines day decorations for the table include creating confetti like hearts using a paper punch and several different colors of paper or remnants from wrapping paper. Use paper heart doilies throughout the table presentation underneath the clear glass servers. Keep in mind the foods you serve can also act as the Valentines day decorations. For example serve a variety of foiled candies in clear dishes place a variety of cookies out in clear glass bowls (arrange them so the hearts are overlapping each other) and fill wine glasses with red white and pink hard candies like M&Ms or lifesavers.
Head to the candy aisle and have fun! Allow each party guest to frost their cupcakes themselves and add their own decoration. Consider picking up some "to go" boxes so guests can take home extra cupcakes to enjoy when they return home. Use hearts cut from pieces of construction paper punch a heart shaped hole in the top string a piece of ribbon through each before filling each box with cupcakes. Write the name of each party guest on to the heart so their boxes dont get mixed up with someone elses by mistake. This box display also acts as yet another Valentines day decoration opportunity for the party. Valentines Decorations make a great accent during that special time of year and you can create these easy decorations for the home or the classroom.
