Parties

Cupid cuties sleepover

 
Super psyched about Valentine’s Day? The 14th is right around the corner. Get ready to share the love with a cupid cuties slumber party.

 

Invites

 

Be a dear and send your best buds a sweet surprise. Cut out hearts from colorful cardstock and write your party’s deets—who, what, where and when—on the back. On the front, write a cute message ala candy sweethearts!

 

Gettin’ ready

 

You’ll want your buds to walk in to find a lovey-dovey wonderland. Light pink votive candles, cover lampshades with pale pink or lavender scarves and see if you can find some gorgeous flowers. Local grocery stores often have inexpensive carnations, daisies and roses in fun colors.

 

Be mine

 

Your sleepover’s purpose? Well, aside from giggling the night away, you’re gonna make valentines, of course! Be prepared with some old fashioned trimmings: red, pink and white construction paper or cardstock, ribbon, lace, doilies, stickers, glitter pens and magic markers—the whole shebang. Make sure you have enough tape, glue sticks and scissors to go around.

 

Sweet treats

 

What goes better with valentines than candy? If your buds are whizzes in the kitchen, have some cupcake mixes on hand so you can whip up your own crazy confections. Or, bake off some brownies or cute cookies—decorated with heart-shaped sprinkles, of course. We love these melt your heart brownies.

 

Usher in the romance

 

This sleepover is all about love, so don’t feel guilty about talking up that cutie in your chem class for hours on end. Check out GirlsLife.com’s Sweeties for some aww-worthy moments. Fed up with guys? Read about what other meanies have done to girls like you. Need a laugh? Head on over to Guys: Blush Much.

 

When you’re ready to curl up in your sleeping bags, pop in some classic romance flicks to send you off to dreamland. Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Pretty Woman and The Philadelphia Story are a few of my faves. Sweet dreams!
