Today I am showcasing some adorable Valentines Day parties. This first FLY AWAY WITH ME VALENTINE’S PARTY was submitted by Gwynn Wasson of Gwynn Wasson Designs. SO cute & clever! I love the propeller pops, cotton candy air & airplane fork sleeves! This is what Gwynn wrote about the party- “I adore Valentine’s Day! Personally I could easily get swept up in a sea of pink ruffles, hearts and frills. But my boys… Well, I’m not so sure how they would feel about it! So this year, I created a super fun party that’s for girls AND boys full of pink hearts, fluffy clouds and vintage bi-planes. Dessert tables are always a magnet for kids at a party. And it is one of the highlights for me to see their eyes light up with excitement when they spy something that, not only looks tasty, but inspires their imagination as well. Hence the creation of the “Propeller Pop”! These propeller adorned marshmallow roller pops were the stars of the dessert table. “Hovering” just in front of our bi-plane backdrop and just behind of the “Fluffy (cotton candy) Clouds” which were displayed in treat cones, these toys/treats were a huge hit! I stood them up on their very own “cloud” of marshmallows and once the party started, they were gone in an instant. I had a blast decorating the kid’s tables. No airplane party would be complete without Complimentary In Flight Snacks and Beverages (“Love Potion”). Each child got their own set of Pilot’s Wings. And just to make eating a little more fun, I created cut-outs to turn the flatware into airplanes. What kid wouldn’t want to “fly” their food to their mouths?! But the good times didn’t end with the food. When lunch was over there were paper airplanes to fold and fly and activity placemats for “In Flight Entertainment”! All the Printables for the entire Fly Away With Me Valentine Collection, including the propellers for the roller pops, cupcake toppers, bottle labels, activity placemats, cut-outs for the flatware and so much more, are available in my Etsy shop.” Credits:

There is something I’m in love with right now- Hot Air Balloons! This UP AND AWAY BABY SHOWER submitted by Jennifer Yun ofMay Detailsis absolutely darling! The hot air balloon images are so so cute. Love the light aqua & lime green color scheme. Such a cute baby shower. It could easily be a 1st birthday party as well.Here is what Jennifer said about the party- “This dessert table was designed by me for my baby shower. I designed all the printables myself. I have a new etsy shop, www.maydetails.etsy.comwhere I’m currently selling this design among others. My husband photographed all the details. We had already named our baby boy Benjamin at the time of the shower so I incorporated that into the design. I personally love hot air balloons even though I’ve never been in one since I’m scared of heights. And it seemed a fitting design at the time since I had ballooned up to a huge size. :) I was craving a lot of chocolate and fruit at the time so my sister made sure to have lot of it for the dessert table. We had chocolate cupcakes, chocolate bars, chocolate cookies and a fruit meringue cake. I designed the invitation first and everything else was designed to pull the whole look together. It was a great baby shower and I would be super excited to have it and my shop featured on your blog!”This whole darling collection can be purchased here.
