Valentine’s Day Challenge: Courtney of Pizzazzerie
Our Valentine’s Day Challenge week rolls on with one of the sweetest bloggers we know, Courtney from Pizzazzerie. Her site is filled with adorable party ideas and delicious confections from her books. Hop on over and check it out if you haven’t already! In case you missed yesterday’s sweet-as-can-be project from Kitchen Living with Coryanne, we shipped out challenge boxes filled with random bits of goodness challenging the recipient to create with the contents.
From Courtney: I was so excited to be a part of this fun little Valentine’s Day challenge from Valley & Co.! Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays and the perfect excuse to make something sweet and send some love. When I received the package of goodies from Aleah and Nick, I was super excited to put on my ‘MacGyver” hat and get the creative juices flowing. I will admit some of the items were tough to incorporate (definitely a good challenge) and though I didn’t use all the items, I was still super pleased with the cute little DIY cupcake treat I created from the items. Let’s take a looksie, shall we?
The glittered gold paper totally stuck out to me (I love glitter + gold!) so I decided to make a baby bunting garland. I cut little triangles with scissors and hot glued them on to a strand of the pink raffia/ribbon. Ta-da!
Next, I grabbed a plastic cup and glued the bunting around it as a little treat container. This would be a cute idea for birthday party favors, weddings, you name it! You can coordinate the colors to your party’s theme.
Then, I made a cute cupcake with the neon pink sanding sugar (so fun) and red cupcake wrappers that were included. The little Cupid arrows made the perfect cupcake accessory!
So I glued the gold bunting around the little cup and set my mini cupcake down inside. I grabbed a simple cellophane bag and placed the cup inside. More raffia was tied on and the last Cupid’s arrow was stuck down in the ribbon.

This is the perfect treat to pop over to a neighbor or set at place settings for a Valentine’s Day party! I couldn’t help myself with the gold glitter paper so I used scissors to make some sparkly confetti
What cuteness! Thank you for sharing such a darling idea, Courtney! We’re so borrowing the mini bunting for upcoming bashes! Happy Valentine’s Day!
