Valentines Decorations / December 30, 2018 / Laurel Hawkins
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.
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.
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.
