We are in full on Valentine’s Day mode at Undercover Hostess. Glitter, hearts, and all shades of pink are filling up our shop! Before we created a few of the specialty Valentine’s Day items this year, of course we envisioned the fun parties and dinners for kids and significant others, but we wanted to focus on the other super important people in our lives.. our friends! We love the idea of a love-filled day with girlfriends celebrating friendship. Host a brunch, party, or dinner, have some cocktails and snacks, and share it with your favorite people! If you are planning on doing something special, we’ve put together a few ideas below on how you can style your Friendsentines Day (that doesn’t work as well as Friendsgiving, but you get the idea :)) or any party! Pink and gold is such a sweet combination! These gold plates and cupcake wrapper provide a touch of glam softened with light shades of pink. And who can resist these cupcake toppers? The cupcake goes without saying. No one can resist cupcakes. Use the toppers to decorate all kinds of desserts or appetizers.
Mix and serve a fun pink drink! One of our favorites is Pink Sparkling Punch (see bottom of post for recipe). Garnish the glasses with strawberries and drink stirrers to complete the lovely look.
Decorate your table with heart confetti! Yay!
Ombre striped wooden utensils are eco-friendly and oh so cute. Fill these favor bags with your favorite homemade baked good as a token of your appreciation for those we are lucky enough to call friends. Be sure to decorate your goodies with our free printable favor tags!
You can shop all of the party supplies featured here (and many more!) in our Valentine’s Day shop.
