Last night I invited my family over for a dessert party to celebrate Valentine’s Day and our love for each other. I decided to go with a PINK theme and I love the way everything turned out.
Each time my family first walked in the door they asked “Did you do all of this for us?” (There were only 6 of us) Haha, YES I did! And I had a great time doing it!
For the Raspberry Mousse I used this recipe. It was simple to make and everyone loved it!
For drinks I made Pink Lemonade. I found this pitcher at TJMaxx and the mugs at Taipan Trading.
I got all the candies for the candy buffet in bulk at Winco. Even though I had to sift through a couple bins and pick out just the pink and white ones. :) The Cake Pops were made with crushed Oreos and cream cheese and dipped in white chocolate.
For the cupcakes, I used a box mix but added applesauce and chopped up Maraschino Cherries. The frosting was this recipe with cherry juice added. They were super yummy and moist!
The party was lots of fun and I was happy I got to share it with my family. Here’s some more details about what we did at the party (besides eat!).
