Anatomy of a Heart Party.

with one comment

Right before Valentine’s Day, AJS hosted a party for the kids in our neighborhood.  It was somewhat of an impromptu affair.  We had all been so busy at the end of January, but, once life slowed down in February, we decided we had just enough time to pull together a kid party.  We hosted 13 children and their parents for a Valentine’s Day Social. We went simple with the decorations – your typical crepe paper and balloons motif. 

We also went simple with the food – light on the entrees and heavy on the sweets – perfect kid fare.  PB&J and raspberry cream cheese clubs plus pigs in a blanket for the kids and chicken salad croissants for the adults. 

On the sweet end of the table, we served bright red cake balls, Valentine’s cookies, cookie bark and chocolate, sprinkle-dipped marshmallows.

As for the entertainments . . . you guessed it . . . simple (are you sensing a theme?).  We rounded up beaucoups of dollar store jewelry with which the girls adorned themselves, pushed all our living room furniture against the walls, and put on some music for dancing.  This also explains why I have lots of pictures of the food, decorations, etc., but barely any kid pics.  The kids were all in motion as soon as they hit the door, so all my pictures turned out blurry.  Here’s one blurry pic of Avery – mid-dancing, decked out in accessories.  

As some of her guests arrived, Avery said “we have accessories over here.”  Such a polite hostess.  The dancing was a smash hit for about an hour, and then they hit Avery’s room and played with every toy.  Her room looked a bit natural distaster-ish afterwards, but it was totally worth it.
