It's time...time to get started on a Valentine party. You've got exactly one month people, ONE MONTH! And if you want to recreate this party you better get busy! Over the years I've had Simple to Over The Top parties. My first Valentine Fondue party was held years ago and was quite simple. Then my most recent Valentine Fondue party was a little more elaborate. Here's goes the latest...it started with the invitations I made~

That's Me - Cupid!
At the time I hadn't started my blog, so I don't really have the best photos, (hm mm, what's my excuse now?). Here's the main fondue table with two types of chocolate in the fondue fountains - Milk & Dark - I'm a Dark Chocolate kind of gal!
I started with a black tablecloth and again used my white table runner. Added some long red ribbon in different sizes and designs - rick rack, polka dots, checks, stripes and plain. Around each fondue fountain are little heart shaped bowls filled with all kinds of sprinkles, nuts, coconut, red hots,
M & M's, toffee bits, dried fruit, etc.
If chocolate really is the fountain of youth - I am definitely the Oldest Living Teenager! I propped the fondue fountains up on glass. (I would NOT recommend doing this - you won't believe what happened!!)
You know everything tastes better if it's dipped in chocolate!
Each item was labeled with some silly love saying. Items shown in this photo are fresh pear slices, maraschino cherries, mandarin oranges, strawberries, pineapple, apple slices, Jordan almonds, gummy hot lips. I made mini heart shaped rice crispy treats and mini heart shaped cheesecake bites~
Put little picks in the rice crispy treats to dip and we drizzled chocolate over the cheesecake bites. I propped some cream puffs on picks and displayed in sugar. Let's call it my Cream Puff Bouquet~
Oops, looks like one is trying to hide!
If you could dip it, I served it! Here I made some homemade caramel nut squares, and heart shaped gingerbread cookies~
Toasted Coconut Marshmallows on a stick are displayed in the back.

The party table before all the treats were added~
In the center I used a cupcake holder to display little numbered votive cups filled with marshmallow popcorn bars. I called this - "How do I love thee, let me count the ways..."
Up front - more fruit~
Um mm, wish I had a piece of that pineapple...I guess I'll have to just grab an apple.
Next up are Drinks and more, yes...lots more Treats! Show the love and forward my blog to someone special! Let me know - you'll be glad you did!!
Dippity Fondue Da!
