This Valentine’s Day Love Letters party-on-a-budget was inspired by conversation hearts. I think they taste pretty disgusting, but for some reason, I still love them. They are the quintessential Valentine’s Day candy–they are to VDay what candy canes are to Christmas and Peeps (also totally gross) are to Easter. So I started with conversation hearts, then expanded on the idea with mail letters and stamps.
Most of the decor for this party was all re-used from a Valentine’s Day photo shoot I stylized for my friend Emily of Emily Magers Photography (pictures to follow soon). Since we already had all these lovely decorations, we figured it would be fun to do a party too! Instead of traditional cupcake toppers for the boring cupcakes I made, I bought a pack of pretty “stamp” stickers from Michaels and stuck them to scrapbook paper. I used another pack of stickers on the candy jars, mini mail boxes and letter in a bottle bottles. The candy and fancy cupcakes (donated by Bake You Happy) were left over from the photo shoot; the rest of the food cost me less than $20 (and was all SUPER easy to make–probably only about 2 hrs total). So total cost for the party was less than $25. Not too bad, if I do say so myself.
