It’s that time of year! Time for school Valentine’s Day parties!

Hudson chose robots, and Ally picked out a milk and cookies valentine from Minted. Minted has the cutest classroom valentine cards, it was hard for Ally and H to choose!

I added a little something extra to their cards, coordinating sugar cookies packaged up in cello bags and tied with ribbon. My kids were so excited to pass them out!

For Ally and Hudson’s class valentines this year, we went with what else but sugar cookies. Minted has the most darling stationary, from invitations, party decor, thank you cards, and everything else in between. I discovered their adorable line of gift tags and thought they’d be perfect to tie on to each cookie. Ally and Hudson chose their favorites, so we ended up with a red elephant saying “I’m nuts for you” and a pirate saying “me hearty belongs to you” (my fav, and SO Hudson).

I gotta say, they turned out pretty cute. Ally and Hudson can hardly wait for their classroom parties to hand out their treats! And who could order just the gift tags with so many adorable Valentine photo cards staring you in the face. After looking at every card and debating which one was the cutest (good luck with that), we chose this one.

You may have already chosen your child’s valentine, but there is always a birthday party, wedding, graduation party or baby shower on the horizon. Here’s where it gets good. Minted is giving away a $100 gift certificate to one lucky Jenny Cookies reader.

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.  All the hearts, the red and pink, the classic conversation hearts, and all the love that’s in the air.  So fun.  But my favorite is the vintage valentines.  I love, love, love vintage valentines.

So last year, while Dan watched the Superbowl, I baked and set up a fun Valentine’s Day cookie decorating table, vintage valentine themed.  I invited a couple of my friends and their children over for a heart shaped pizza lunch and an afternoon of buttercream icing and sprinkles.

InvenTori opened on Valentine’s Day. I was flattered T asked me to bake desserts for her store opening. There was a great turn out of fans and shoppers coming to check out Tori’s new store, meet T&D, and enjoy cake pops, cupcakes and cookies!
