Name: Arlo & Oliver, Ages 1 & 4
Location: Ontario, Canada
In our house, Valentine's Day is the perfect time to celebrate our love of family and friends, so of course we threw a party! Also, I have two boys so if I get the chance to throw a pink party, I am taking it!
For food, I made chocolate zucchini cupcakes with strawberry coconut icing and low sugar cookies. I made some heart cupcake toppers out of paper I already had. For the drinks I threw some thawed strawberries into water and found the cutest printable flags.
For his valentines, Oliver and I made some heart shaped crayons and we found free labels to use for the packaging. He had so much fun handing these out to his friends.
We spent the afternoon snacking, laughing, exchanging valentines and making crafts. Oliver finished the party off with a pirate tap dance number. You can't beat live entertainment and an afternoon spent with great friends.
