Valentines Decorations / December 31, 2018 / Rachel Gates
Fill a punch bowl with red punch lemon and lime flavored soda a half-gallon of rainbow sherbet (in large scoops) and cut up oranges to float on top. Wet the rims of glasses and rub them into a saucer of sugar. Display these glasses next to the punch bowl. The sugar not only makes the glasses an addition to your Valentines day decorations but they add flavor to the drink. Dont forget the cupcakes! There are so many ways to decorate a cup cake and that could actually be part of your Valentines day party plans. Consider setting up a separate table or section of your countertop with all the Valentines day decorations for each cupcake in buffet style. These decorations can include sprinkles hard candy message hearts M&Ms chocolate syrup shaved dark chocolate shaved white chocolate and so on.
Take sheets of plain white paper and cut them into snowflakes using all different patterns (use your imagination). Place the hearts over the snowflakes and trace around the edges. Cut the snowflake so it fits over the heart and glue them together. You could also trim the snowflake so it is slightly smaller to give the heart a framed look. Hang the hearts throughout your home on mirrors on glassed over wall hangings and from lighting. Project Idea #3 Create a simple paper chain using red pink and white. Alternate the colors in a pattern that pleases you. Theres no right or wrong way to do this. Hang this with additional Valentines day decorations like the paper hearts mentioned above. Consider hanging the hearts from the chain itself. As an added twist cut large hearts out from pieces of decorative scrapbook paper.
1. Make a statement to anyone who walks into the room with a huge banner that is hung on the wall or across the doorway. Nothing says "Happy Valentines Day!" like a Valentines banner 2. Use lots of different sized Mylar balloons all over the place. Have them hanging from the ceiling stuck to walls and even randomly on tables and chairs. 3. Have some helium balloons floating around too. Not only are they going to be mostly on the ceiling but they are fun to bat around turning into impromptu volleyball games from time to time. 4. Have paper hearts stuck everywhere. Tabletops chairs walls and even stuck on the ceiling. You can either buy premade ones or cut them out of construction paper. 5. Stuffed Valentines heart pillows and boxes of candy makes great party favors.
