Hearts All Around

Valentines was something of a special one this year. As it was the first time we would have all three couples in the house together (mum and dad, sister and brother-in-law, me and hubby!) - not forgetting our little munchkin of a niece - the sis and I decided to set about creating a small party!
Since my niece is diabetic we didn't really want to make anything sugar based. The men were taking care of the barbeque dinner, so we decided on a simple addition of fruit heart kabobs and heart shaped chicken pie pastries.

There are so many craft blogs around now where you can print free downloadables to use for your party, whatever the theme. We printed a Valentine banner from Catch My Party and fun conversation heart cake toppers from The Party Dress which we used as props for taking fun photos. In addition we made our own heart print outs using Photoshop and added our own messages using a sharpie. Cut out and attach to a lollipop or popsicle stick and you have an easy instant prop to use in a photobooth style set-up!

Strawberry and Watermelon Fruit Kabobs

Taken from Style Me Pretty

Popsicle sticks/ wooden skewers
1" Watermelon slices
Fresh large strawberries
Small heart cutter

Slice the strawberries in half and using a heart cutter cut out hearts shapes. Similarly use the cutter to cut out hearts in the watermelon slices. Slide onto sticks in an alternating manner and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
