a little valentine making party

valentine making party for kidsYesterday after school, we had a little valentine making party.  We had all the parts for our valentines, but I wanted to put up a little decor, and figured it was a good excuse for a party, so here is a little inspiration if you are wanting to do the same over the weekend!

(Sources for above: paper heart garland; love glitter garland; heart napkins; similar heart pillowsplastic heart; rainbow party plates; pink letterboard; other small items snagged from Target $1 spot)

(find printables here, dinos, dragons, unicorns, and cats)
