Oh, cookies, how I love thee! I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like. And for me, Valentine’s Day and cookies go together like macaroni and cheese. Even though my family isn’t Valentine’s Day fanatics, a Valentine’s Day Cookie Party sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. Don’t you agree? Invite your best girlfriends and their littles over for a fun-filled and festive afternoon you won’t soon forget!

How to Throw a Valentine’s Day Cookie Party

Step One: Charming Invites are a Lovely Touch

Formal invitations are always optional, especially for a gathering like this one. It just depends on your budget. But if you have the cash to spend, I say go for it! You can always find and order beautiful invites and have the option of DIY printing. Because seriously, who doesn’t love snail mail?

Step Two: Create the Perfect Party Atmosphere

You don’t have to spend major moolah to throw a killer party. Your local discount party store has awesome things for incredible prices that won’t break the bank. Whenever I am considering spending a little bit more on party decor purchases, I try to select items I can reuse and recycle. For instance, I had admired the adorable Valentine-themed section of the Pottery Barn Kids catalog for many years (even before I had children of my own). So this is a no-brainer! A cutie-pie cookie party is a perfect excuse to order reusable matching plates, cups, heart-themed table runners, and festive garlands. Heart-shaped balloons and streamers are a fun addition — and don’t forget to create a super cute playlist!

Step Three: Serve Something Delicious

Cookies? A must. Milk? Duh. You could even turn it pink with red food coloring or serve strawberry milk! LOVE. Wine for the moms is a given. Whip up a batch of heart-shaped sugar cookies for your guests to decorate. Make sure you have all the fixings — frosting, sprinkles, Red Hots, the works. You could also serve mini red velvet bundt cakes and chocolate-covered strawberries. Yum! The possibilities are endless. So don’t be afraid to get creative!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
