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 also happened to be in possession of an AMAZING Martha Stewart Crafts Valentine Paper Pad and I was dying to put it to good use for my 12 months of Martha challenge.

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!

    Valentine’s Day may be long over but I’m still in love with this post!
    Milk and donuts make the perfect combination not just for breakfast but for just about any time of day when the craving hits (aka ALL the time). This is too creative and definitely something I’ll have to keep in mind for next year. My only concern would be that my milk and donuts would then be too pretty to eat! Heehee 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this Alison!
