We’re going “postal” over this adorable “Cupid’s Love Post Office” Valentine’s Day party created by Debbie of Wants and Wishes Design. It’s simply LOVE-ly!
The faux post office Debbie created – complete with pink and red awning – is just too cute. Some of my favorite details include the 3D heart shaped cupcake toppers that double as perfect little pockets for love notes and candy, the shot through the heart brownies, and all the postage stamp bag toppers. The hanging polka dot gable box and “Cupids’s Love Mail” postage stamp sign are the perfect addition. There’s just way too much cuteness packed into one party here!
Read on for lots more adorable photos and party details. . . .
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Debbie…
“First the dessert table that is filled with sweets and treats that are cupid worthy and then a Valentine station…. aka Cupid’s post office… where the kids can make valentines and ‘deliver’ them to everybody’s mailboxes.
Since Cupid’s post office was our theme we incorporated postal items including candy bar wrappers that look like an envelope, post cards, and stamps. My favorite one is the 5 things I heart about you. You can write your top 5 things you love about your valentine! The favor toppers are square like a postage stamp and has the seal of delivery from Cupid’s Post Office on it.
Also, we included hearts and arrows throughout the collection, like our shot through the heart brownies and arrow garlands. We cut heart shaped brownies and stuck an arrow through them! We created arrows out of paper straws and the arrow points and heart ‘feathers’ are included in our Valentine collection. They are very easy and fun to make! This would be a great activity to do with all the kids as well! We have fun heart boxes that you can fill with treats and a little note to give to your valentines! My favorite part… well one of my favorites is our heart cupcake toppers. They are 3 dimensional heart pockets!!!! Fill with candy and a little note to send some love this Valentine’s Day on top of your cupcakes! We have also used our heart pockets attached to a box or attached them to twigs and fill them with candy and love notes that the kids could take off the tree. We will be having 14 days of how to use our printable Valentine collection for your Valentines starting soon at Wants and Wishes Designs.
For Cupid’s post office we created a red and pink stripe awning to invite the kids in to sit and make their valentines. The back drop was a hand drawn chair rail and paneling on butcher paper and red and white stripe wrapping paper as the ‘wallpaper’. We strung garlands, rick rack, and mailboxes from the awning. We wanted a spot where the kids could create their valentines. They had array of contains (boxes, paper bags, and clear bags) candy and valentines to make, allowing them to create a special valentine for each one on your list!”
