The chilly days of February call for cozy celebrations, and nothing could be more cozy than a cup of hot cocoa. How about a hot cocoa party for Valentine’s Day?

Gather up your favorite sweets, like cupcakes, strawberries and sweet marshmallows for floating in your cocoa.

Whip up a batch of your favorite cocoa and add it into a pretty little teapot for easy pouring. Add special touches like little heart sprinkles on a cakestand or serving tray.

Don’t forget the whipped cream!

Offer strawberry milk or keifer for a special sweet and refreshing option.

Make the party festive by hanging paper lanterns.

Create a happy party table in an instant by sprinkling sweet little heart candies all about.

Place settings are as simple as heart-shaped plates, inexpensive ikea dish towels as napkins, and little boxes of chocolates.

What a treat!


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
