Happy Valentine's Day!

We hosted a very small early Valentine's Day gathering this morning. The boys each chose a few of their school buddies to come over for snacks, bag decorating, a Valentine's exchange, and my favorite part... making their own little"love shack" {thanks for the cute name, Alison!}

I was on a budget with a major B so I saved money by making ALL of the decorations from supplies already on hand {extra scrapbooking paper, twine from The Twinery, bottles, containers, craft supplies, and candy dishes I already had, and I used red and white star fabric from Jake's 2nd birthday party for the tablecloth} The printables were adorable and FREE! from Magnolia Creative Company that I found on Catch My Party... so cute and much appreciated!

I've been trying to feed my boys healthier lately, so I added fruit, along with {heart shaped} cheese and crackers to balance out the sugar.

The BEST cinnamon rolls ever... click here for the recipe. I tried to make them into cute little hearts on a practice run last week {it was my 1st time ever making cinnamon rolls... but they looked like the letter "w" so I just did circles today and dressed them up with heart sprinkles instead}

Love shacks ready to be decorated

The boys handed out these white chocolate covered rice krispie pop treats for Valentines and had a blast with their buddies celebrating Valentine's Day!
