This year I was asked by my son's first grade teacher to organize and put together their Valentine Class Party. This is the first time I have been in charge of one, but have helped out before many times before, so I was ecstatic to do it!After searching the net for some ideas I can across these absolutely adorable printables from Bird's Party that were perfect for so many reasons!
First off they are free! You can't beat that! They are great for all ages, and not too girly so boys can enjoy them too. Last my son's school mascot is a Bee/Hornet :)
Once I had my theme I started thinking of the treats, that is always my favorite part. For the center of the table I made a cupcake hive (tutorial found here) designed to match Bird's graphics.
Then I filled the hive with pink pastel iced cupcakes topped with their matching topper printables, just too cute!
Along with cupcakes Pink Lemonade to drink.
I wanted to create a special treat for the teacher as well. So I got a small vase and filled it with pink sixlets and made some lolllipop flowers.
Last for the a cute little take home favor I got some gumball tubes and filled them with alternating layers of pink and black gumballs with a cute little 'Bumble Gum' label.
That is it for the treats for the party, keeping it light since they will also be getting lots of valentines from their classmates :) Be sure to check out the next post for all the activities too!
