My Valentine's Day table.....a little late

I recently won a contest on one of the blogs I follow and she happens to be one of my favs!!!  Give it up for Genevieve of Celebrate2da...The Superchick Way!!!  She sent me a box full of goodies and I got to set the table up for my girls for Valentine's Day.  What could be better???  My girls love being the guinea pigs for  anything I create.  You can see the items I received in my box by going to the original post, HERE!!!

I found an old sheet of my daughter's that kind of went with the Valentine's theme and then I went to town setting up all the stuff I had received.  I also made some marshmallow pops that were covered in dark chocolate and crushed pretzels and took the easy way out and bought some heart shaped donuts from our local Walmart to set up on the table.  The girls were very excited and pleased with how everything turned out.  What do you think??

My daughter is a Rock Star!!

My daughter turned 6 a couple of weeks ago and she picked a party that was very fun!  Bella came to me and said she wanted a Hannah Montana party and I love themed parties but sometimes I feel as if characters like Hannah Montana get used a little too much.  I talked to my daughter and we agreed that a Rock Star birthday would be appropriate with some Hannah Montana mixed in.

I recently saw a blog post from Hostess with the Mostess where a valentine's party was being featured and it included a rock - n - roll sign that said: "Love Rocks!" and I instantly knew it would be wonderful for my party.  I emailed Piggy Bank Parties and requested a custom banner to say:  Bella Rocks!.  They got back to me right away and that was the start of the party.

I decided to make cake pops, popcorn, marshmallow pops and a guitar cake but I also decided it would be nice to serve rock candy, pop rocks and sixlets.  The kids had a great time filling their chinese take out boxes with the special treats and the box already had 80's sunglasses, roll on body glitter, lip gloss, temporary tatoos and some chocolate candies in it.

The kids played dress up with several shoes and clothes that I provided.  They actually had so much fun doing this that we didn't get to play any other games.
Needless to say, this party ROCKED!!

I can't believe I forgot to put the cupcakes out on  the right to make my table complete.  Maybe I will find a pic that someone took.
