Dixie Owner and Founder Jennifer Hunt recently hosted her son’s pre-K class for an afternoon of Valentine’s Day cupcake decorating. After seeing the images from the party, we are convinced there is nothing more adorable than children decked out in aprons and chef hats allowed to descend upon oodles of candy and sprinkles in pursuit of the perfect lady bug cupcake decoration!
The cupcake decorating was under the direction of Itty Bitty Bakers’ Owner, Jessica Hamby. The company hosts baking classes, camps, and parties for children ages 3-12. Jessica believes that sprinkles are the love language of children, and this Valentine’s Day party was no exception! Drawing inspiration from our Ladybug Invitation by Dixie artist Eden Flora, Jessica brought already prepared chocolate cupcakes as well as red frosting and sprinkles, mini Oreo pieces, candy eyes, and Pocky Sticks for the children to create their ladybug masterpieces. Each child made two cupcakes – one to eat at the party and one to take home!
In addition to their ladybug cupcake, the children were sent home with cookies by Reabakes that were perfectly decorated with the same artwork found on the invitation and tied with our Ladybug Gift Tags. Continue scrolling for more Valentine fun complete with fabulous balloon garlands, a giant calligraphy heart balloon and a preschool-sized table and Chiavari chairs, all from Party Pickup, customized lady bug water bottles, and beautiful florals from Huckleberry Collective. And one of Jennifer’s favorite decorating tricks is to have fabric cut for a tablecloth that matches the party theme and colors. Have the edges stitched and then you have the perfect backdrop for your table and you can throw it in the wash when you’re finished!
We have included all of the party sources at the bottom of the post.
