Valentine’s Day Cookie Decorating Party Ideas

Here’s a great idea for celebrating Valentine’s Day with the kids. It’s a cookie decorating party created by Katie of Petite Social. This would be a fun play date after school or on a weekend afternoon.

Party Highlights

  • Katie designed this party with rustic elements and a color scheme of red, blush pink with neutral tones of brown and tan.
  • She set up a simple but stylish dessert table, with some darling Valentine’s printables from Frosting & Ink.
  • The children were able to frost and decorate heart-shaped cookies and take home some sweet favors.

Valentine’s Day Sweets Table

Here’s what Katie says about her party: You can’t celebrate Valentine’s without a dessert table filled with sweet treats!

Using a play on words, we had Mad for You macarons, Be Mine brownies, Kiss Me cake pops, Cupid’s Cupcakes, and a variety of Hug Me Heart Candies.

Each child got to take home a little muslin favor bag filled with heart candies.

Cookie Decorating Station

In addition to a dessert table, I created a cookie decorating station for the little ones.

  • Each guest had their own personalized cutting board, spatula, and heart-shaped cookies to decorate.
  • Frosting and heart candies and sprinkle were set out for the kids to make their creations.”

Cute Party Ideas

  • Simple cupcakes, brownie bite, and macarons are dressed up with frosting and candy hearts.
  • Rustic “twigs” inserted into cake pops.
  • Creative use of paper doilies – wrap milk bottles, embellish a Valentine’s card box, decorate an apothecary jar, and hang on the backs of chairs.
  • Themed favor bags.
  • An adorable work station with plastic cutting board & spatula embellished with pretty papers.
  • Kid size aprons are always a nice idea for any food themed party.
