MAKE IT CUTE
Cupid cuties sleepover
Be a dear and send your best buds a sweet surprise. Cut out hearts from colorful cardstock and write your party’s deets—who, what, where and when—on the back. On the front, write a cute message ala candy sweethearts!
You’ll want your buds to walk in to find a lovey-dovey wonderland. Light pink votive candles, cover lampshades with pale pink or lavender scarves and see if you can find some gorgeous flowers. Local grocery stores often have inexpensive carnations, daisies and roses in fun colors.
Your sleepover’s purpose? Well, aside from giggling the night away, you’re gonna make valentines, of course! Be prepared with some old fashioned trimmings: red, pink and white construction paper or cardstock, ribbon, lace, doilies, stickers, glitter pens and magic markers—the whole shebang. Make sure you have enough tape, glue sticks and scissors to go around.
What goes better with valentines than candy? If your buds are whizzes in the kitchen, have some cupcake mixes on hand so you can whip up your own crazy confections. Or, bake off some brownies or cute cookies—decorated with heart-shaped sprinkles, of course. We love these melt your heart brownies.
