Heart-to-Heart Decorating

Here's everything you need for the perfectly pulled-together Valentine's Day party -- it's all quick and easy.


Invitations

Cut five hearts from construction paper. Glue them together on your invitation to make a caterpillar. Draw the legs and facial features, and write all necessary information on the hearts.

Centerpiece

Decorate your table with a lollipop centerpiece using a 4-inch Styrofoam ball cut in half. Glue the flat edge of the ball to a 9-inch red poster-board circle. Insert one lollipop for each guest into the ball. Fanfold tissue paper and secure between the lollipops with straight pins.

Refreshments

  • Make red punch or pink lemonade.
  • Serve heart-shaped sandwiches or cookies.
  • Sprinkle red candy hearts over vanilla ice cream.
  • Create a heart-shaped cake or ice-cream cake from a square and round cake pan.

Party Favors

  • Necklaces made from pieces of red candy rolled in clear plastic wrap, tied with curling ribbon between each piece of candy, with a piece of ribbon connecting the two ends.
  • Waffle cones filled with candy and wrapped in red cellophane, tied with red yarn.
  • Fortune Valentines made by writing special Valentine messages on paper hearts. Roll and insert inside Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes cookies.

Decorations

  • Place a couple of balloons on the front door where the party is to be held.
  • Balloons and streamers always look great at any party. Attach a thread or string to the ceiling or walls so that it hangs above the party table, then drape streamers over it.
  • Always hang balloons in big bunches for a maximum effect. You can give one to each guest at the end of the party.
