As I was thinking of what theme I wanted to create this year for Valentine’s Day, I remembered I had an old type writer in the attic and that’s how I came up with the “You’re Just My Type” Valentine’s Day Dessert Table.
When I was deciding on a dessert menu. I wanted to create a table that would be fun, tasty and VERY easy to put together. This table is full of easy, fun and delicious recipes. Some can be made days in advance or even frozen weeks in advance.
The kid’s arrived 30 minutes before the party. They had tons of fun decorating the cookies.

An old type writer I had in the attic. I styled this whole party around this type writer. Sometimes it takes one thing to get the ball rolling.
Having food labels that coordinate with your theme adds another layer of interest. Here is the template for the You’re Just My Type Label. I left this label blank so you could either write or stamp on it.
I always try to have a fun way to say “thank you for coming”. See the little ones eyes light up when they open this party favor. The pouches are filled with candy and little toys. Click on “party favors” above to find out how I made these party favors.
