Valentine's Bash!

Valentine's Bash!
I absolutely LOVE Valentine's Day! I have loved it since elementary school...the class party's where everyone exchanged cards & candy were Great, but my favorite part was receiving a flower or special treat that the school sold to students to purchase for fellow classmates. It was always fun trying to figure out who they were from. As I got older, it only became more fun & now that I have a kid (soon to be kids) its only going to get better.

This year was our 1st Annual Valentine's Bash and it was a hit! We made Semi-Homemade Valentines,  Reese's stuffed cookies (special surprise from Ana to her Daddy), Heart thumbprints, Two toned cookies and decorated heart shaped sugar cookies and oreo truffles.

Semi-Homemade Valentine's

We made Semi-homemade cards, because while shopping Ana spotted Spiderman & Princess Cards (Which are two of her favorite things right now)considering each were only $1, I bought both.  I didn't want her to miss out on all the fun of making cards, so I cut the perfferated edges of the cards and they were used to decorate the cards she made.

Things we used:
Store bought cards
Construction paper
Valentine themed paper
Tissue paper
Glitter glue
Paint, Crayons, & Markers
*Then I cut, Ana tore & ripped paper to glue to the cards,  Tearing tissue paper to shreads was lots of fun for her.
