If you couldn't tell from my Instagram posts...I LOVE throwing events. I honestly get a high off of creating memories and it warms my heart to shower the special people in my life with attention on their birthdays! This is also why I love Valentine's Day so much - it gives me another excuse to do all of the above & has quickly become my favorite holiday of the year!
I go ALL OUT for Valentine's Day each year, and it honestly has nothing to do with my husband! I throw a "Galentine's" party for all of my girlfriends, I shower the kiddos with fun gift baskets full of random swag (stuffies, candy, socks, etc!), and I put in a little extra effort when it comes to the classroom Valentine's...
Just think back to when you were in elementary school....the BEST day was when you got to pass out your valentine's, then sort through your own collection! Conversation hearts, Spongebob Squarepants...and on a really good year, you'd get the cards that came with one of those red, heart suckers! It was SO.MUCH.FUN!
When I was pregnant with Riley, I was introduced to the most amazing stationary company called Minted. I order my Christmas cards through them every year, but what most people don't know is that they have an INCREDIBLE collection of classroom Valentines! Naturally, that is where I have ordered Riley's cards from, so I wanted to share this hidden gem with you as well!
As you can see from all of the pics, I like to add a little something with each card to make it extra exciting! In the beginning, we added a matching cookie. Riley's school doesn't love the idea of bringing in sweets anymore, so this year, we're adding a mini squishy to her card (Any other parents out there have a kiddo on a MAJOR squishy bandwagon!?!?!)
I can't wait to share Riley's Valentine's this year, but for now, if you want to check out Minted's assortment of classroom Valentine's, click here:
