Valentines Party Prep with Oriental Trading

In my house, we enjoy celebrating just about every holiday out there, and one that is coming up that we are preparing for is Valentines Day! With having 3 kids, 2 of which are in school, I like to get those Valentines for the kids to give out and share with their friends. This year,  Valentines Day is on a Saturday, which happens to be the weekend of my daughters birthday, so the kids will not only be handing out Valentines at their school, but for my daughters birthday this year, we will be having a Valentines Day party!

When it comes to the party planning, we like to head to places like Oriental Trading, where we can find a variety of party favors for various themes, all at amazing prices. Making it so we can get all the supplies we need to make our parties both fun and memorable for everyone!

Being that Estrella's birthday party will be on Valentines Day this year, she decided that having a theme of love for the party was very fitting, so she chose to add Paris themed items into the mix. We were able to find a large variety of Paris themed products to add to her party, that included Paris themed tableware, party favor bags, and even party favors for her guests. For the tableware we found some great Paris themed plates, napkins and cups, and for the Paris themed party favors, we got some fans, and some pencils!

For the Valentines aspect of her theme, she decided that having Valentines out for her guests, would make for a great touch. She chose to go with some mustache suckers, which fit into the Valentines Day cards they come with, that read, I Mustache You To Be Mine. She also chose to add some Star Wars themed Valentines into the mix, not only for her guy friends who will be attending her party, but also because her brother thought they would be a good fit as well (not that it goes with her party look, but being the good sister she is, she went for it).

To go with the Valentines theme, she got a bag of some Hershey's Kisses to spread out on her table for guests to enjoy during the party, and a bag of mixed Valentine themed candies to put on the table as well. Then to go with the Mustache themed Valentines, Estrella found some fun flashy stache molded straws to have for her guests to use during the party, and some mustache blowouts as well! In all, making Oriental Trading a hit when it came to finding the pieces for putting together the unique party that Estrella had in mind for her birthday this year.
