I am so glad Valentine’s Day comes after Christmas because just when I am sad to put away the Christmas decor, I can put up the cutest decor of pink and red shades. Valentine’s Day has always been a celebration to me whether I was single or coupled up because of my love for doilies, hearts, and shades of pink! I used to send Valentine’s Day cards to all my friends and one year decided to send presents to my single girlfriends just so they knew they were loved.
Whatever your status this Valentine’s Day, I hope you feel the urge to celebrate, or just indulge in a little pink and remind yourself you are fabulous and loved.
I’m sharing an affordable and simple party set up all items from the 99 Cents Only. This would be a great simple party setup for your kiddos, grandkids or girlfriends for Galentine’s Day.
I think by now you know I am pretty obsessed with the 99 – I am often sending my friends videos and photos of the things I find and they run to their nearest 99 Cents Only store the next day trying to find it. I’m always in shock how easy it is to create something cute – like a party – and stay in budget. You can go all out and have more for less. There’s always something new at the 99 so you can go every day which explains why I went to three different 99 Cents Only locations in four days. I was so excited about everything being unpacked in stores! I would just driving around meeting friends and would look up the closest 99 Cents Only to pop in.
On top of finding some great white bins for organization, after that Marie Kondo craze, I also found more adorable Valentine’s Day decor – the rose gold lined cups, rose gold utensils, and also drink dispenser. The lace plates really killed me with their cuteness, they come in white, pink, and teal.
I find enjoyment in taking my time and walking down every aisle – and you know what I do? Put everything pink and adorable in my cart and when I check out it’s like $20 total and I feel like the smartest shopper. Then I show Benjamin everything and I’m like beaming with pride, haha!
DIY bank placecard holder
If you are tight on table space and feel like you need more decor, think creatively with seat assignments. I found these mirror teddy bear banks that I can use as a placecard holder, or rather, just a name on the bank so they know that is their special seat and they are my special guest.
Can you imagine the squeals of excitement from your girlfriends or kiddos once they see this? You can give it all away since decor is so affordable and you don’t have to store it – plus it gives you a great excuse to check back to the 99 for the next holiday.
These cookies, cello bag, ribbon, all from the 99. The 99 also sells food and fresh produce for a steal, so you can also stay in budget with your grocery budget. I saw a few brands we normally buy and I was like, OK, wait this sparking cider is 99 cents? I paid three times as much for my Christmas party, not going to do that in the future!
The bud vases are my own, and I picked up the petit fours from my local grocery in the bakery department. I figured let’s make it a fun dessert party because one can never have too many sweets – according to me.
I also created a little drink station by the windowsill – yes our new home expansion is almost complete. I saw this drink dispenser and went wild, such a steal! The sequin heart also came in a pink version and I am so in love with it, you can play with it, the sequins flip over to another color.
I hope you have a wonderful time decorating and celebrating Valentine’s Day and I hope you can stop into the 99 and check out the fun decor – they also have Valentine’s Day cards if your kids need them for the classroom.
It really is your one stop shop for party needs, and you’ll stay in budget which makes everyone happy! Happy Valentine’s Day!
