Valentine’s Day Treats
With these fun vintage dresses, we present sweet Valentine’s Day treats. These cherry slushies are topped with an embellished heart shaped lollipop for good measure. Cherry slushies are so much fun for a Valentine’s Day party in the classroom, or at home.
A slushy is nothing more than shaved ice and flavored syrup. We chose cherry for our Valentine’s Day treats, because we love the bright red. If you have some freshly fallen snow… and you’re not a germophobe (like me)… it makes amazing slushies! Just grab an ice cream scoop and add some syrup. (And, steer clear of that yellow snow!) For all the germophobes- shave your own ice. There are machines of all sorts for this purpose.
To present these shimmering, sweet Valentine’s Day treats, we used clear cups, so you can see all that slushy goodness. Then, for a lovely festive touch, we added a Dessert Skirtz from the Cherries Jubilee cupcake wrappers collection. The topper is a simple heart shaped lollipop on a plastic stick, embellished with a ribbon bow.
We shared this strawberry float idea here in the Dressing Room last year. These darling Valentine’s Day treats for kids are back by popular demand. Go grab the how to and give it a try. Your kids will smile.
We serve these in a clear cup, also. The Dessert Skirtz featured above are from the Little Black Dress collection of cupcake wrappers by Confetti Couture. The red, strawberry float looks so bright and cheerful against the crisp black and white.
Funky, fancy straws are required! Cheers.
