Valentine’s Day with Chex...The Snack Table.
I love a good challenge. So when Little Miss Party approached me about restyling their Halloween Chex Little Miss Party in a Box, of course I couldn’t resist!
The box arrived on my doorstep just as cute as can be. The attention to detail and adorable packaging made it feel like I was opening a present.
I took an inventory of what I had and decided to focus on three key items to pull together a simple and sweet Valentine’s Day snack table. The other goodies will be saved to for next Halloween.
While planning out what I was going to do for the set-up, I opened up the box of Chocolate Chex and couldn’t get over how good they were just on their own. In fact, handfuls of the cereal kept disappearing each time my two young children would walk by! It was then that I realized, I could serve the Chocolate Chex straight out of the box on the snack table. I mean, it doesn’t get any more hassle free than that!
I used the chevron favor bags embellished with a gold foil heart sticker to serve the Chex mix. And on the other side of the table, I included the black and white striped cups also embellished with the same gold foil heart sticker. Sticking with my no hassle approach to snacks on the table, I looked to my pantry and decided to add some cereal bars stacked on a cake plate in the center of the table.
I decided to drape some gold sequin fabric behind the table and thought it could use another element, so I created an “XOXO” banner cut out from the chevron favor bags. To make the banner, I blew up the letters “XO” in 550 pt font in Microsoft Word. I printed and cut the letters out and traced them on the favor bags. Then I cut the letters out of the favor bags, punched holes at the top and strung the letters on a strand of jute twine. It was so easy to make and turned out so cute!
Thanks Little Miss Party and Chex for sending along the box of goodies! I had fun putting together the snack table and my boys had even more fun devouring the treats with their friends!
