Valentine Themed Party For My 5 Year Old

So my little girl turned 5 this month and requested that her birthday party  be heart themed, which is a good fit when your birthday is close to Valentine’s Day.  So we started to plan the party.  My family all lives out of State so it was a very special birthday because most of my immediate family were able to attend.  This was the first birthday they were able to spend with us, they all thought 5 was a good birthday to come to Cincinnati and celebrate.  We had a full house and it was wonderful to see everyone.

We started to design some fun Valentine themed cookies for our store and made some extras ones for our upcoming birthday party.   We did a two layer cake with a small middle layer for a nicer look.   We choose Cookies and Cream and our signature Orange Butter Strawberry Cream for the layers.  I choose pink for the cake and the small middle layer was red.  We did buttercream this year, so the red middle tier was more for look, otherwise everyone’s months would have been red.

Here is a picture of the cake and how we displayed it.


I filled my decorative glass with red and pink candies that I purchased. We had gumballs, mints, heart suckers, sixlets and sweet heart candies.   This candy ended up in the good bags for our guests.  We also made mini cupcakes;  dark chocolate caramel sea salt and Diva,  white chocolate cake filled with our Madagascar vanilla bean.

Planning a birthday is a lot of fun.. though I am a little sad to see her grow another year older.   It goes by so fast…

Hope you enjoy the post…
