Simple Valentine Party Ideas

Today I’m joining a fun group of blog friends to share ideas for hosting a Valentine party for the kids!  These ideas could be used if you are throwing a large party, or just want to do something special for your own kids on Valentine’s Day.  If you are visiting from Lucy’s fun blog Craftberry Bush welcome!  So happy to have you here today.  I’m sharing a simple Valentine tablescape and a few fun treats that were seriously SO easy to put together.  Like took 20 minutes easy.  My kind of party. :)

I just used things I’ve had for years (a lot of this came from my Christmas tablescape!).

The embellished cards to the right of the plates were some Valentine cards I made years ago and never used.  I thought it would be fun to use them to write a simple personalized note to my little guests.  A little something I love about each one of them.

For an easy snack I tossed some popcorn, pretzel hugs and Valentine m&m’s in festive bowls.  My kids LOVE this snack.

I also added fruit and used a small heart cookie cutter for the cheese.  It’s the little things. :)

I put some chocolate in a few heart shaped bowls, added twine hearts to my favorite lanterns and hung our favorite homemade heart tissue banner from the window.  Done!  Now I just needed a few party guests!  Never hard to find around our house. :)

This little stud is always happy to volunteer.  He even brought along a few friends to join the party.  You can see Storm Trooper peeking his head over the table in the next chair anxiously awaiting that heart shaped cheese. ;)

My girls were so excited to see this fun table and Valentine snacks when they got home from school today.  Mom has been a bit out of commission lately and I think it made them happy to see me back to myself .. moving slowly.. but doing a little decorating.  And my version of cooking. ;)

Throwing a party for kids should be anything but stressful!  At the end of the day kids don’t care how much time you spent decorating.  They just want good treats and good company.  Mission accomplished.

I think a little Valentine fun was just what the doctor ordered today.  :)

  2. Such a sweet tablescape, Erin! Perfect for Valentine’s as we can see from your fun photos. I really like those twine hearts and the striped bowls. Heck, I like all the decor you put out. Those cards are so pretty, too. You are so good at this fun but oh so pretty style of decorating. That picture of Kole with the storm trooper is fabulous! So happy to hear you are feeling better. I do hope your kids and hubby are spared!! Hope you are back to 100% soon! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

  3. Adorable!! Your guests are the cutest of all. Love all the small touches. Those twine hearts are so sweet. Beautiful tablescape, Erin! Thanks for sharing! xxoo

  4. Love this beautiful and festive table – thank you for sharing! So glad you are on the mend! Do you mind sharing where you found your dining chairs in this room? We recently purchased a new kitchen table and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect chairs with no success. Thank you!

  5. Erin – it’s such a pleasure to read your posts. Adorable family and drool-worthy decorating aside, you’re such an upbeat and sweet person and I always leave your site feeling refreshed! Keep the goodness coming, but take care of yourself first, friend – I’m very glad to hear that you’re on the mend!

  6. Love it Erin!! and yes I agree, it doesn’t need to be over the top or stressful! your kids look liked they really enjoyed every bit of it! Perfect Erin!

  7. So glad you’re feeling better Erin and that decorating has resumed. It’s a pretty and fun tablescape you’ve made. How long do you keep your Valentines decor up?

  8. Oh Erin! I just wanna jump through these pictures and hug you! I’m amazed you were able to find the strength to put together such an adorable party for your kids!! They are just the cutest! I love your tablescape and love that snack idea! So cute. Your fruit and cheese platter is the cutest…I need to do more of that and a little less of the sugar overload 😉. My favorite part though…those cards! You are so smart and thoughtful! Ya know, my mom wrote me a little simple card like that one time when I was their age and it meant the WORLD to me! I still have it and it warms my heart every time I read it. Thank you for the reminder of what’s most important! You are wonderful and I’m so grateful you are feeling better and could share your talents and ideas with us! Muah!💋💋

  9. When I taught kindergarten, I had a parent (an interior designer) who loved to celebrate Valentine’s Day. She would have the student’s table looking very festive. Your post brought back those memories. I love this holiday shared with little people (and, of course, my husband). Enjoy that family of yours. Beautiful and fun decorating tips you offered on the blog today.

  10. I’ve just ended up reading your weekly posts after a long day and was shocked to hear what happened to you! I’m glad you feel better (well, decorating is the best healing programme:)). Your husband seems to be your guardian angel so he definitely deserves this wonderful Valentine decor:D This sunny corner in your home looks so cozy and I love the red plates – especially the striped bowls. The sunshine (and raspberries, yummy!) would be welcomed here, too. We have ice everywhere and -10 Celsius. Brrr! I’ve just bought a lot of berry scented Yankee Candles and pots of hyacinths to brighten my days.
