Contrary to popular belief, I am totally trying to simplify things in my life! No, I swear. So when I was thinking of some fun ways to celebrate my favorite holiday, my top priority was keeping it simple! So instead of baking my own treats, and throwing a huge themed party, I decided to gussy up one of my favorite lil’ treats, donuts and milk.
I added some fun arrows to the donuts using toothpicks and bamboo skewers. And I cut out the arrow parts from my Martha Stewart Paper. I attached the paper with sticky dots, which I’ve mentioned before are one of my FAVORITE must-have craft supplies.
I styled my treats with a few goodies from Minted’s Conversation Hearts party pack!
I dyed the milk pink with a drop of red food coloring, and rimmed the glass with gold sprinkles! The best way to rim a glass like that is to mix a tiny bit of powdered sugar with milk to make a bit of a frosting. Dip the rim in the icing, and then dip it sprinkles! You could also use strawberry milk of course! But I don’t like the sweet on sweet.
All in all I think this is the perfect way to share some love on Valentine’s day with your lover, a play group, or your girls you watch The Vampire Diaries with!
