What better excuse than Valentine’s Day to get your friends together for some crafting fun! Grab your gal pals and share the valentine-making with this simple guide to what to serve, craft, and have on hand.
Here are some ideas of things you can do to celebrate this upcoming holiday.
Create a decadent dessert tower with easy finger foods. Use patterned baking cups or small ice cream dishes to hold an array of bite-size treats. Yogurt-covered pretzels, nuts, chocolates, and popcorn are all great finger-food ideas.
Display bottles of your favorite champagne, soda, or any other beverage near the snack buffet. Having a self-serve drink station close at hand will allow uninterrupted time with friends, since you won’t need to be refilling glasses during the party. Plus, a drink station can serve as an extra “decoration” if you find yourself with a lot of undecorated space.
Fresh flowers are perfect for Valentine’s Day decor. Gather a bunch of blooms in different shades of pink and place them in a simple white or gold vase for a simple display that looks elegant. You can enjoy this party decoration long past the day of the get-together.
Keep your treats simple for this crafting party. These decadent pink coconut and triple-chocolate truffles fit the sweet holiday theme and taste as good as they look. Plus, the bite-size sweets are an easy finger food, which makes them perfect for a serve-yourself dessert bar.
When you’re throwing a party that requires a lot of setup, fast and simple party decorations are a must. These hanging heart wreaths are so easy that you can make enough to decorate the whole party in just minutes. To make the wreath, cut a piece of pink patterned paper into seven 1-inch strips. Fold each strip in half and crease, then fold the two ends toward the center so they form a heart shape; use double-stick tape to hold the ends together. Lay out all seven hearts with the points toward the center and with each side touching the next heart; secure with double-stick tape. Hang individual wreaths or group several together to create a festive display.
Serve a delicious pink cocktail that the gals will love. Start with fruit-flavor vodka and top off with pink Prosecco. Sugar the rims of the glasses with red or pink sugar sprinkles for an extra-special look.
Bonus idea: Provide each guest with their own container—like a bag or tray— to fill with their crafts as they make them.
