My kids and I decided to host an impromptu Valentine's Day party this year and gave ourselves 7 days to notice to put the entire party together! We decided it would be fun to make Valentine's cards at the party as the main activity and serve an easy, but special Valentine's themed brunch menu, complete with a pink Italian soda bar.
What People Ate
We put together an easy, yet special brunch menu with a bagel bar, yogurt bar, with raspberries, blueberries, granola and homemade strawberry muffins and fruit skewers with watermelon hearts and berries.
What People Drank
The Italian soda bar was such a hit! The pink drink was perfect for a Valentine's party, and we dressed them up with whipped cream, heart shaped sprinkles, and heart lollipops for a fun Valentine's day drink.
The beautiful homemade naked cake with red flowers and heart shaped cookie cake were both the big hits of the dessert table! We also served "I love you more than donuts, wait that's not possible" glazed donuts, and chocolate dipped heart shaped shortbread cookies.
Our little guests decorated Valentine's Cards and coffee cups for their moms to take home and gift to others on Valentine's Day.
Activities / Games
The kids kept busy with the yogurt bar, choosing their favorite toppings and making mini parfaits in small mason jars, making their heart shaped fruit skewers and decorating Italian sodas with heart shaped sprinkles. They also kept busy creating Valentine's Day cards and coffee cups for their moms!
