Last month, I had the pleasure of meeting so many incredible women at BASH 2016 (a party/event planning + blogging conference), one of whom was Chandice Probst from Gluten Free Frenzy. Chandice immediately told me all about this fun idea she had that mixed a “Favorite Things” inspired Valentine’s Day party with an easy way to give back to those who could really use some extra love, and I immediately knew this was a girl after my own heart!
Let’s see… an excuse to get the girls together (with french fries and chocolate) PLUS a bit of that pay-it-forward magic that lasts far beyond the party? Yes, please!
So, she promised to send in pics after her party, and I promised to share the story, in hopes that others might find this idea inspiring too and add a similar “Blessing Bags” type of activity to one of their parties. What do you think? ;) Chandice explains all about the Blessing Bags (which were given to local homeless people) in her party details below, so I encourage you to scroll down and check it out. There’s lots of fun eye candy to take in along the way!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- “Fries Before Guys” French Fry Station with add-your-own toppings
- Simple & sweet Valentine’s Day dessert station with open-frame pink heart backdrop
- Blessing Bags table/station (with the cutest little helper you ever!)
- “Kiss Kards” station for making your own sweetheart cards
