red hearts & brain waves

Thursday night, a dream literally came true for me-
we had a Valentine's Party! 

I know there are a lot of mixed feelings out there about Valentine's day, 
but I am, and have always been, a HUGE fan.
Partly because I love hype, sweets, little crafts and gifts, 
and of course, love.

Two of my good friends from work started planning this a couple of weeks ago, 
and the prepping, baking & crafting side of this party
may or may not have been my favorite part. 

Let get's real, those are the reasons I always want to have parties.
And my friend Kelley's love language is parties, so she totally gets it too.

sugar cookie cupcakes


mason jar + burlap + lace +wooden heart = v-day vase 




the cuuutest felt heart garland, also by kelley


please note Roux checking out the snack table...


This table was full by the end of the night,
so many sweet friends brought awesome desserts that disappeared quickly.
Ross even made pigs in the blanket for the first time!



empty tazo tea box + burlap + string + a doily = v-day candle holder


The Mexican Valentines flags were my absolute favorite!
Kelley simply folded tissue paper, cut holes, and then taped the flags to ribbon.
Super cheap & easy, and they were a hit!


Remember the hearts everyone wore in Julie & Julia?
That was my favorite part for sure. 




Kelley's sister brought over this game...
it is so crazy...
you control the movement of this ball with your brain waves.
I'm still not sure I believe it, but everyone loved it!



It was such a wonderful night, 
and we feel so blessed by our friends here. 
Our hearts are full to the brim.

Looking forward to more Valentine's celebrating to come!
