Happy Valentine's Day Friends!In the spirit of love- thank you for following my blog and being such a loyal fan! I want to share with you something that you will LOVE if you are addicted to Pinterest and like to craft holiday decor!
A good friend of mine, Melissa Flores, started a trend in my crafty little world a few months ago when she invited me to a Halloween Pinterest Party. Since she hosted the Halloween Version, I've invited all my friends over for a Christmas and Valentines day Parties!
"What's a Pinterest Party," you say?! Well, here is the wording from my invitations:
***A side note about invitations: I just create an event on facebook to invite my friends- Its easiest for people to RSVP that way and I don't have to spend time making invitations, because you know I wouldn't be able to just do something simple- BUT, if you have the time and the desire- themed invitations would be adorable as well!)***
Make sense? Its SOOOO fun!
Lets start with food.Valentines is associated with sweets, and it seemed like that's what inspired my friends for this party.
- Cranberry Sparkler
- Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar
- Apple Nachos
- Gluten Free Sugar Cookies
- Gluten Free Banana Coconut Muffins
- Vegan Guacamole
And for the Setting
Hosting any gathering at my house is a benefit to me. It forces me to spend a morning gathering all the loose ends around my house and putting them where they belong. It feels so good when everything is in its place! Hosting also means that I get to make my house pretty with the themed decor BEFORE everyone comes over! Here are a few shots of some of the Valentines Decor I put up for the party (and to enjoy afterwards with the additions I created at the party).
And finally, our Projects:

Everything turned out so well!It is so nice to have conversation with my lady friends on a regular basis- and this crafty gathering is a GREAT EXCUSE! If you would like to start hosting Pinterest Party's and need a little help, I'd love to answer any questions- please don't hesitate to contact me! I'll close with a couple of photos of the projects I got to make added into my Valentine Decor. Thank you to Heather for taking some awesome photos!
Again, Happy Valentine's Day to you- I hope it is full of LOVE! So excited for our Easter Edition Party in two weeks!
