How to have an EASY, NO STRESS Valentine Party for your kids

Happy Valentine's Day!!! 

My very favorite holiday because I get to show my friends, family, and loved ones how much I love them.... 

1 Corinthians 13 says it all!! 
"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Do you want to have a LOW KEY, NO STRESS Valentine Party for your kids?  

Let me tell you, you have come to the right place. 

I have four boys and I'm all about E A S Y!  

Every year, I have the boys decorate sugar cookies for an after school treat.  They love doing it, then eating their creations.  

And you want to know the best part?  I buy the sugar cookies pre-made... and the icing comes with it.  In a kit.  No lie.  

Seriously! How cute is this?  

{This} is the kit I purchased... it's seriously so cheap! 
And bonus, they taste pretty good!

Paper Plates {here} and Napkins {here}

Cute Heart-Shaped Cakes {here
Pink Lemonade {Trader Joe's}
Drink Stirrers {Target Dollar Spot}

Acrylic Barstools {here}

See how easy it is to make a fun and memorable little party for your children, grandchildren, or friends?  
These days, it's all about showing someone you love them.  It doesn't have to be extravagant.  It doesn't have to cost money.  Just be together and spend time with one another.  

"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones." Proverbs 17:22 

Next up on the tour is Tammy from Pink Peppermint Design!  Her party is absolutely darling!
