The next Valentine’s party feature goes to this sweet ‘BE MINE’ VALENTINE’S DAY PARTY submitted by Amber Lyden of Party On Designs. Check out the tulle pom garland tutorial below! Such a cute party. Amber said- “We wanted to create a buffet-style setting. It’s great because the shelves gave height that normally can be difficult to create using a standard table. DIY- How to make a Tulle- Pom-Pom Garland 1. Purchase tulle already in 6″ rolls. You will need about 25 yards to complete 8 poms as shown. 2. Wrap your hand with the tulle, gently, about 10 times. The looser you wrap, the easier it will be in the next step. 3. Remove the band of wrapped tulle from your hand. Holding it together so it will not unravel. 4. Tie with a thin ribbon, wire, or fishing line. Double knot in the center. 5. Cut the loops on both ends 6. Fluff the loose ends by basically twisting side to side. As you do this a few times, you will see they will turn into balls. The more you do this, the fluffier it will become. 7. Once you have your Tulle Poms – use a needle and thread to string it and VOILA!” Vendor Credits: Party Stylist- Amber Lyden of Party On! Designs Printables- Party On!

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:
