And part of the fun was the preparation and creating the table centrepiece. Lots of valentine candy!
Wrapped water bottles, I've always wanted to do that.
And one more pic, these are just dollar store vases filled with candy and trimmed with ribbon and a tag I mentioned here.
I also served chocolate fondue with fruit and mini red velvet cupcakes for a cupcake fondue, an idea I found here. We had pink themed drinks too, white zinfandel, pink lemonade and cranberry spritzers.
Then we got into the fun of seeing what everyone created. Each item was so unique and really reflected the person who made it. Kathryn sent along her speciality, chocolate dipped licorice,so yummy!
Regan made this awesome banner. I'm hanging mine over the mirror in my front hall, its the perfect size.
Jeannie filled these tins with items from her recent trip to Hawaii.
Aren't they sweet?
Avril packaged up her item beautifully.
And inside was a cupcake pin cushion, swoon!
Regan showing off hers! And in front of her on the table you can see what Dee made us, cute personalized create signs from thread spools. See that dress form, Regan's indicates her love of sewing.
Avril's is in black and white with a banner to match her craft room.
Mine has a shabby chic feel with butterflies perched on a piece of pussywillow.
Then Anna made us a bottle to remind us to capture and hold on to our dreams. I love it!
And she had put them in these bags trimmed with bow created from old dictionary paper. I am so lifting this idea!
I made these candy cane hearts.
Simply glued two together and voila!
And I made tussie mussies!
I've always wanted to make them, and had a great time creating and adding embellishments to them.
And see that crinkled ribbon, you can get that from my friend Dee here. I love it.
And lastly, here is a pic of all us, we took a few but we all had our eyes open in this one!
