Here in the St John household, we love to party, er, celebrate. We have themed dinner parties (which are a total blast), we have Saturday night cookouts (no matter the actual day of the week), and we totally we make our own cakes for all of the birthdays.
Valentine’s Day is no different. We decorate and make cookies or cuppie cakes or some such thing. Sometimes I even make them from scratch…and we have some kind of wonderful dinner together, with red and white tablecloths and the works.
You just decorate ’em up, use tissue paper to wrap the goodies and pull through the tubes, and tie off the paper, just like a candy. Voila!
On a side note, I did make a bunch of these for the elder daughter’s birthday in the fall…they were a HUGE success! I filled them with candies, little plastic Pokemon figurines (the theme of the party), and plastic rings and bracelets. For those I used paper towel tubes…the kids loved them, and they were not just plain ole plastic bags from the party store.
