Valentine’s Day Kids Party-Breakfast-“Cereal-ously Sweet”

Hello Friends! Are you planning a special Valentine’s Day party for your kiddos? I am so EXCITED to share a very special party that I styled for Twinkle Twinkle Little Party Magazine. The theme for this party is called, “Cereal-ously Sweet Valentine’s Day Breakfast”. It is an alternative that young and old will enjoy!

Let’s get started….and yes, there is a lot of photos! What can I say, we had so much fun!

I started with a “Cereal Bar” that is full of kid friendly favorites, such as an assortment of cereals in Valentine colors, fresh fruit, and yogurt parfaits.

I included a few “sweets” as well! What would Valentine’s Day be without beautifully decorated cookies!

I had so much fun setting up the breakfast table! I started with a printable placemat and added these adorable red crates that I purchased at www.michaels.com So cute, right? I added mini, chocolate & strawberry jam croissants and fruit cups. For a special touch, wrap the croissants in tissue paper tied with baker’s twine.

Using these adorable plastic bottles filled with strawberry milk is a great option for a Valentine’s Day breakfast. A printable flag attached to a heart paper straw is another fun detail that kids will love!

A donut tower is an easy centerpiece to put together for the table! Donuts for breakfast? Absolutely!

I love to use cupcake toppers but didn’t want frosted cupcakes for the breakfast. I baked chocolate muffins and using a mini cookie cutter, I dusted powdered sugar on the muffins creating a sweet, heart shape.

Printable water bottle labels are a must for any celebration!

The “XOXO” ceramic dishes from hooplaevents.net are perfect for this breakfast party!

Having craft tables is another must for parties and I incorporated two separate stations. These printable Valentine’s Day cards were placed in the heart envelopes!

Using inexpensive fabric, white bags, and embellishments,  guests can make their own personal envelopes! Simply untie them from the chairs and the children can bring these home. We placed all of their party favors in the bags so nothing would be left behind!

One of my favorite ideas from this party, was the little burlap bags with mini cereal boxes! So cute with the tags that read, “Cereal-ously, You’re My Valentine”.

Here’s a few more inspiration photos…

Thank you so much for letting me share this oh so sweet, “Cereal-ously” fun breakfast party with you! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Strawberry Birthday Party-Berry Sweet Theme

Good morning friends, is it August already? Today I am so happy to share this post with you and maybe we can hold onto summer a little longer! Strawberry birthday parties are one of my absolute favorite parties for girls! You can style this theme is so many different ways. I am thrilled to share with you this unique version with a few added surprises! Are you ready?

I designed a complete printable package using reds, pinks, and with “doilie” & sweet strawberry graphics. The twist on this theme… I added touches of gold throughout the tables making this a very modern, popular look. Gold continues to be a very popular accent color for so many weddings, showers, and birthday celebrations. A little sparkle is always fantastic!

A “berry” sweet dessert table was styled with cupcakes, cookies, and mini  shortcakes. Simple summer flowers were placed in a “lace” rimmed container and also mixed with fresh strawberries on white plates for a very attractive look.

One of the highlights were these absolutely, beautiful, coordinating sugar cookies from Christy at Dolce Custom Cookies. I have been following her amazing talents for for quite some time and was thrilled to be able to work with her on this project. She matched the cookies perfectly with my printable designs. AND… not only are these cookies a true form of art, they are so delicious! The vanilla bean makes these hard to resist…especially when you are styling and photographing! (I can’t wait to work with Christy again!)

Strawberry Tents #1

Another highlight, are these doilie fondant circles that I MADE! Yes, I did!

I purchased Wilton White Fondant  and cut small circles with a scalloped cookie cutter. Using a small circle Wilton tip I carefully punched holes in the fondant to make the doilie! So easy! The sweet fondant strawberries, leaves, and flowers were all made made by Tanya. Do you see the tiny gold peril placed in the centre of the flower? Little touches are what make celebrations so special!

Tanya also made these gorgeous, fondant floral cupcakes! Also adding tiny gold perils! LOVE!

Ruffled vanilla cupcakes with fondant strawberries and printable cupcake toppers are a must for this party!

For added sweetness and extra touches of gold, I added strawberry macarons from Yann Haute Patisserie So much yumminess!

Adding a gold tassel to the decor is right on trend, too!

A refreshment station with strawberry lemonade served in glass bottles dipped in gold sprinkles will impress guests! Paper straws, personalized water bottle labels, and LOTS of printable decorations add so much fun to birthday parties!

tissue fan #1

I made the very large tissue fan for the backdrop! It makes a perfect focal point for the dessert and refreshment tables! This tissue flowers are very inexpensive to make and can be done in so many different sizes. Let me know if you would like me to post a tutorial!

I also added gold beading in the centre of the tissue flower to tie the gold in with the gold perils in the fondant cupcakes!

Make party hats even more special by adding small tissue flowers and gold beads (same ones that were used in the large flowers!)

Thank party guests with printable tags tied to white paper bags. I used a scrapbook punch along the edges to match the doilie pattern in the printables and sweet desserts!

Place invitations in gold striped paper treat bags when delivering these to your friends and guests. So cute, right?!?!

Teacher Appreciation Tags {FREE PRINTABLE

Today I am sharing another printable for teacher appreciation ideas! Our school year is ending in a few weeks and I designed a sweet, new free printable that is perfect for the fabulous goodies I purchased at my local Bath and Bodyworks store. I LOVE lemon scented items and the absolutely, lovely, limoncello scented hand soap and lotion make the perfect gift! The candle is so fragrant, too!

I placed the items in a little basket with a coordinating dish towel that I purchased at Homesense
