Valentine's Day Party {Full of LOVE theme}

{FULL OF LOVE} Balloon themed Valentine's Day Party!

My daughter wanted to have a little Valentine's day and we came up with a balloon themed party and loved how it turned out! 

So here is how our little Valentine's day play date and I will give you all the details below!

It's amazing how simple like balloons can really make your decor stand out and really transform your party into something so much fun and just so sweet! 

We choose balloons because what kid doesn't like balloons and what's not to like anyways?! It's simple, sweet, and really serves the purpose! Even though I didn't do a very traditional Valentine's day theme, I did incorporate the colors and did add some heart elements here and there! Overall, it was a sweet, playful theme and it was everything my daughter wanted for her little party! 

I had Brittany from Edible Details create the sweet and cutest balloon themed fondant toppers and decided to change things up with the toppers, instead of using printable tent cards, I decided that I wanted to use fondant balloons to wrap around the apothecary jars and plates to add a touch of whimsy and to also decorate the milk bottles with a heart that wrapped around the neck. Of course we had "Balloon Pops" and those were a hit as always! Brittany always creates the cutest and the most amazing designs! This by far have been one of my favorite designs that I have had the pleasure of creating and coming up with ideas for! 

I worked with the lovely Brooke from BB Sweets and she made the cutest and sweetest cookies that were balloon themed and she even made them whimsical by adding twine to some of the balloon shaped cookies! They were just perfect and were really good as well! 

I also worked with the sweet Breeze from Madyson's Marshmallow's and did she ever create the cutest design for our chocolate covered marshmallows! They were a very big hit at the party and were really good too! 

Kristal from Atutudes, created the beautiful and sweet tutu that my daughter wore and added that balloon and gave it that sweet touch that the tutu needed! It was exactly what I had wanted and perfect!

I worked with Lindsey from Pocket Baby and created the cutest little top to match our tutu and our theme! I think the "Full of LOVE" top was just perfect for the party! She was really a joy to work with and very helpful! 

I enlisted the help of Alisha from Fairytale Jubilee to help me come up with a "balloon" themed hair accessory and boy did she ever help come up with the cutest hair accessory ever! Isn't that balloon top hat to die for?!?! I really love working with Alisha because she really comes up with one of a kind designs and looks for our parties!

I had the pleasure of working with Corie from Miss CoCo Designs and she created the cutest and prettiest little bracelets that we have out as party favors! They were supposed to mimic the balloons in our theme and color scheme as well! They are so pretty in person and do they ever sparkle! 

I also worked with the cool and super talented Natalie from The Knock-Knock Factory and she created the cutest wreath that greeted our guests as they came to our party! She really has some serious major talent and exceed all my expectations! She is awesome and will really create something unique and one of a kind for your party decor! 

I worked with the lovely and sweet Wendy from Green Beansie Ink and she designed the  sweet and adorable Balloon themed invitation and printables, and I was not able to use the printables because what do you know, my printer broke the day night before!!! Ahhhh, she created the cutest and amazing printables to match the party!! She is amazing and is so talented and will really create something to your liking and will bring your core theme to life! 

I also had the pleasure of working with Jenny from Crossing The Bugger-Dixon line with some decorating tips and party favors! Jenny is super talented and gave me so many great ideas to work with and to use! I really enjoyed picking her brain because for those of you who don't know her, she has awesome ideas and she is also SUPER crafty!! She suggested the lantern ideas that were used in the old vintage windows with ribbons, helped with backdrop ideas, and also gave me the ideas for the party favors when it came to the boys! Punch Balloons?? Bubbles?? Bitty bags with just plain ole' balloons?! I would have NEVER thought of that if it wasn't for her help! So, thank you so so much Jenny for all your sweet and creative ideas and for giving me some wonderful ideas and directions! I really loved picking your crafty brain! :)

Thank you also to my sweet and talented friend Amy Craft from Amy Craft Photography for taking amazing pictures as always! You make the parties look so pretty in pictures and give us a fun keepsake to remember!
