Party Highlights

  • Cupid's Post Office

    Welcome to Cupid's Post Office. There are 2 parts to this party. First the dessert table that is filled with sweets and treats that are cupid worthy and then a Valentine station.... aka Cupid's post office... where the kids can make valentines and "deliver" them to everybody's mailboxes. Since Cupid's post office was our theme we incorporated postal items including candy bar wrappers that look like an envelope, post card and stamps. My favorite one is the 5 things I heart about you. You can write your top 5 things you love about your valentine! The favor toppers are square like a postage stamp and has the seal of delivered from Cupid's Post Office on it. Also, we included hearts and arrows throughout the collection, like our shot through the heart brownies and arrow garlands. We cut heart shaped brownies and stuck an arrow through it! We created arrows out of paper straws and the arrow points and heart "feathers" are included in ourValentine collection. They are very easy and fun to make! This would be a great activity to do with all the kids as well! We have fun heart boxes that you can fill with treats and a little note to give to your valentines! My favorite part... well one of my favorites is our heart cupcake toppers. They are 3 dimensional heart pockets!!!! Fill with candy and a little note to send some love this Valentine's Day on top of your cupcakes! We have also used our heart pockets attached to a box or attached them to twigs and fill them with candy and love notes that the kids could take off the tree. We will be having 14 days of how to use our printable Valentine collection for your Valentines starting soon at wantsandwishesdesign.blogspot.com. For Cupid's post office we created a red and pink stripe awning to invite the kids in to sit and make their valentines. The back drop was a hand drawn chair rail and paneling on butcher paper and red and white stripe wrapping paper as the "wallpaper". We strung garlands, rick rack and mailboxes from the awning. We wanted a spot where the kids could create their valentines. They had array of contains (boxes, paper bags and clear bags) candy and valentines to make, allowing them to create a special valentine for each one on your list!

    I bought them at a local store here. They just switched hands, so I don't know if they are still available
