Tips and tricks to create a fun (and pretty) Valentine's Day party for the kids

I will use any excuse to plan and decorate for a partyespecially for my little ones. They love watching the set-up and they of course love all the treats.

For Valentine's Day, I've come up with some easy and budget-friendly ways to create the perfect party, featuring supplies from some wonderful local shops that carry seasonal decor.

Here's what the kids loved the most...

colouring tableI think that the most popular thing in this party set-up was the colouring table—it was a huge hit! To create your own, use a roll of plain wrapping paper, tape it to the top of a toddler table and throw on some crayons. The kids sat there forever having such a blast.

Another activity they enjoyed was playing with Little Larch’s Natural Playdough, which is made from all-natural essential oils and ingredients. It was such a blast for them... we gave them some cookie cutters and let them get creative!

Now the good stuff—the treats! I have to say that Trois Filles knew exactly what the kids would like—the sweet filled cupcakes, macarons and floral cake pops were delicious. A good friend of mine from Life as a Wife and Mom brought over her fabulous recipe for her Sweetheart Fizz drink (recipe below).
