I asked Amelia a couple of weeks ago if she would want to have a Valentine party. Her answer was quickly "YES!" She has no clue what Valentine's Day is but she knows very well what PARTY means. Party to Amelia = CAKE. (LOL) I thought it would be fun to invite a few of her cousins and little friends over to eat/craft/play for a couple of hours and who doesn't love a holiday that's all about love/hearts/pink/red things??? So we asked Alex if we could throw a party and with a smile on his face (because he knows this is just as much fun for me as it is for Amelia), he said yes!
I love Valentine's Day because you can be super cheesy and use paper hearts, balloons, go all out pink and red, and all that fun stuff. I've let Amelia choose the plates, napkins, invitations, etc. I give 4 or 5 choices and let her choose which one she likes best. She has even told me some of the food she'd like to have at the party. :) She picked out valentines on Saturday to give to her guests...I think she would have slept with them if I had allowed it. Now when she spots anything valentine-related in the stores, she says, "I need that for my Balentine party!" She can't say the "V" sound just yet.
All of the images below were found on Pinterest.
I've found so many cute printables online and there are lots of parties to draw inspiration from. I hadn't been on Pinterest in quite a while but have been on there at some point every day over the last week, looking at the cute Valentine ideas.
I found this printable HERE.
Amelia asks at some point every day, "is it time for my Balentine party?" We're keeping a countdown - we can't wait!!
Love to all,
