We had a big dump of snow yesterday, again (have we mentioned that we are SO ready for winter to be over!).  But snow days mean we have time to bake some cupcakes…the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.

 

 

We used our cupcake cello bags, of course, to hold these yummies. Here’s a hint, add some fun Valentine’s Day candy to the bottom of the bag to kick this gift up a notch!  Finally, we added a cute tag and some red and white baker’s twine.  Now the problem is, how do we stop ourselves from eating the whole batch?!

We would comment on how quickly January has flown by, but it’s been so cold outside, we’re happy to be that much closer to spring!  It also means that Valentine’s Day is on its way! Garnish is the perfect blank canvas for packaging up treats for your sweetheart, classmates and even something for the teacher.

 

 

We found this fun heart shape pie mold at Target.  With some ready made pie crust and some yummy cherry filling, these hand pies are perfect for gifting for Valentine’s Day.  We used our kraft treat bags which are just the right size.  We added some paper hearts and trimmed the top with some craft scissors.  How fun would these be for breakfast on February 14th, the kiddos can grab these for the bus ride to school.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of a Valentine that is perfect for everyone is your child’s class.  Goodness knows they will get tons of candy, so eliminate the sugar rush with something cute and practical.

How about these fun tissues.  Great for girls or boys, and even teacher too!  We have used our large glassine bag to package the tissues up extra special.  Add some fun tape and twine, or how about a handwritten note from your child.  Garnish is your blank canvas to make Valentine’s Day s-weeeet!

Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday…a school day and a work day.  Why not send your loves out the door with some heart!

We found the cutest paper hearts at Target.  They were inexpensive and you get a ton in the package.  If you can’t find something similar, just grab the construction paper or even some paper doilies, and you are good to go.  We cut up our paper hearts and glued them onto one of our paper cups, adding the perfect polka dot straw to match of course!  Or, why not package up lunch in our white box, and seal it with a pretty heart.  We call it, love to go!

Happy Monday everyone!  What do you have in store for the week?  Are you looking for some inspiration for Valentine’s Day?  Well, we have a recap of some of our faves…

Top:  Our version of the “love shack”.  It was super easy to make with wafer cookies.  We also used the rub on letters you can find at the craft store.  Check out the full post here.

Bottom Left: Simple and sweet…conversation hearts and cinnamon hearts in our candy tubes.  Check out the post here.

Middle Bottom: Fancy up some of our paper straws with hearts.  So easy!  Check out the post here.

Bottom Right: This is a DIY.  We traced hands out of construction paper and made a flower.  How fun!  Check out the post here.

Stay tuned, because there will more Valentine inspiration to come this week!

Yes, it’s hard to believe that January is almost over!  (thankfully, as we are in a deep freeze here)  That means it is time to think about what you’re going to give your valentine…

Here is a fun and quick idea for you.  Rice Krispie Treats mini heart cakes.  Rice Krispie Treats are just about the easiest thing to make.  Here is a recipe for you.  Make a large pan of squares and simply use three different sizes of heart cookie cutters to cut out your shapes.  Stack them on top of each other.  Next  melt some red chocolate in the microwave and drizzled it on top.  Finally, place into one of our small acetate boxes with some cinnamon hearts.  We had this pretty ribbon that we found at our local craft store to complete our Valentine treat.  Aren’t they cute?  These would be adorable for your child’s class or your favorite co-workers.

Garnish ♥ Enjoy

Our candy tubes fit all different kinds of confections.  Fill them up and slip them in a backpack, a lunch bag or someone’s purse.  It will be a sweet surprise that anyone would love to receive!

Told you we were going to talk hearts this week!  Cookies are always a welcome treat, and when they look like hearts, they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

We used our glassine bags and some twine to  package up theses yummies.  If you are going to bring a bunch into school or to work (won’t you be popular with a basket of these on your desk!), why not stack them up inside our rectangular berry box.  Heart cookies are definitely a sweet surprise!
