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!


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
