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.
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.
Punch two holes in the left and right side of each heart and string ribbon or twine through to create a heart paper chain. You can do this using colored construction paper and plain white paper as well. The construction paper and plain white paper works great for those interested in adding their own drawings doodles and embellishments to these Valentines day decorations. These simple paper craft projects are a great way to sit down and introduce basic Valentine decorations techniques to young children.
