A Doll’s Valentine Party


When I went to the kitchen for breakfast on this Valentine’s Day morning, I found my little doll table all set for a party.   There was a decorated cardboard box for collecting cards, an assortment of 1940s era Valentines, a luscious looking cake and a box of Valentine chocolates – all miniatures made and assembled by my daughter.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. How sweet, just like our school Valentine Parties. Last night at church dinner, I asked one of the little girls that I was serving, “Do you have your Valentine cards ready for school tomorrow.” She replied “Oh, we don’t do that, we just made cards for our parents.” I guess some of our old traditions are gone.

    1. My granddaughter in the third grade still made out Valentines for school this year, but I think it’s the last year they let them do it. Also, I don’t think they have a party – they just pass out the Valentines. I loved my school Valentine parties which we had right on through the 8th grade. Lillian

  2. Those are the cutest little tiny Valentines! What a lovely thing for her to make that Valentine’s party for you to wake up to. I hope you had your own cake and Valentines, too. Happy Valentine’s Day!
