Valentine's Day Celebration Part 1

I bought these cute platters and bowls on clearance at Target last year and wanted a reason to use them so I decided to have a little family Valentine party yesterday afternoon. We hung some decorations and made some snacks. The girls had fun helping us make all the stuff.



Pink heart shaped Rice Krispie treats, marshmallows dipped in pink chocolate, and pretzel rods dipped in white chocolate.



The girls made some heart crayons. I've been collecting broken crayons in a container for a while. They unwrapped them and put them in these ice trays. We baked them in the oven at 200 degrees until they melted. Then we let them cool and popped them out of the trays.

I made some heart shaped banana muffins for breakfast this morning.

Looks like a great party!
A few years ago--actually several years ago---we had our own party Valentine's Day party in the evening. We had both family and friends over and it was a lot of fun. I think we should do it again even though I only have one child left. Maybe we can even plan something at our church.
