V-Day Party Recap

I can't believe how fast the time flew at my daughter's 3rd grade Valentine Party.  The party games were a huge hit with the kids!  We played Cupid Bingo (see the February 14th post here) and every child got to spin the prize wheel.

I had really wanted the craft station since that would have been right up my alley, but even adults don't always play nice.  I ended up with the game station and decide I was going to make it the best station ever.  My daughter told me that her classmates could not stop talking about how great my station was and what a great party planner I am - yep, my station totally rocked!

Here's some pictures from the party:

Happy Valentine's Day!

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm sorry I've been away for so long (exactly 4 months).  My new (well, not so new anymore) job has kept me so crazy busy that I rarely have time to do much else.

I do have some projects to share with you.  At the beginning of the school year, I signed up to volunteer for the valentine's party for my daughter's 3rd grade class so I've been busy putting everything together.

Tuesday night was spent making candy coated Oreos for my daughter's competitive dance team - I forgot to take a picture, but I hear rave reviews back on them.

Last night we made and decorated 100 mini donuts (some donuts were "injured" during this process). 

Treat toppers were next.  The owl is from CAC2 cut at 2".

I'm hosting the Valentine Party with 2 other moms.  I took the game station (I wanted the craft station but we won't go into that...)

The game for the party will be Cupid Bingo.  The bingo balls were made with ping pong balls and Cricut Vinyl.  Bingo Cards I created in Excel and the finishing touch are conversation hearts as the card markers.

I was also able to borrow the prize wheel from work and am so super excited about it - what kid doesn't love to spin the wheel and win a prize!  I'll post pictures later - I have to get everything wrapped up and get out the door in a few minutes.
