This year, I thought it would be fun to create a Valentine’s Day candy bar. Whether it’s a party in honor of St. Valentine, or a birthday, or even an addition to a dinner with friends, why not break out the pink and gold in order to celebrate all-things-sweet!?!?
Ah, love. It’s a many splendid thing. It’s all we need. And to some… it stinks. But the day of celebrating love – *ahem* Valentine’s Day – doesn’t have to be one strictly of romance. It can celebrate the love of a sibling, a parent, or even a friend. While I am apt to occasionally roll my eyes at the cornballiest of cards sitting upon the drugstore shelves, I cannot help myself when it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day. I will always get Mr. Suburble a card from the humor section. I usually slip a small box of chocolates into my cart for the girls. And I have been known to send cards to my friends. And why not!?!?

First, we have to talk about these adorable lollipops.
With a microwave and some candy melts, these lollipops took no time at all! I was careful to microwave only in 25-second increments (with lots of stirring in between) and because the sticks were longer than the molds, I had to trim them down a bit with scissors.
I used these gold-rimmed coupe glasses to showcase the treats in my Valentine’s Day candy bar. Martini glasses would also be a fun way to jazz up the candy selection. A gold scoop was added to each glass and all were set atop a gold tray.
On the Valentine’s Day candy bar, next to the cups and adorable little paper straws, I have a few favor bags that candy can be taken home in.
You could finish off your Valentine’s Day candy bar display with some fun crepe paper Valentine backdrop ideas.
