I WANT CANDY! When we think of Valentine's Day, we think of lots of pink and red hearts, sweet treats, handmade valentine cards, and tons of candy! So today, we're showing you a super fun way to incorporate chocolate and candy galore with a fun sweet treat charcuterie board (aka our dream come true!). Check it out...

First of all, no party styled around a theme is complete without fun decor. We're obsessed with these paper goods by Carolyn Suzuki and loved using them to create a very festive Valentine's table perfect for both a Galentine's soiree or a kid's party.

For the treats, we mixed in sweet with savory. You can create whatever spread you'd like depending on your favorite snacks, but if you want some inspiration, here's what we used...

- Pocky 
- Pretzels (yogurt covered and regular in special XO shapes!)
- Rock Candy
- Conversation Hearts
- Popcorn
- Gummy Bears
- Malt Balls
- Chocolate Wafers 
- Candy Bark

To create our tablescape, we used blush pink scalloped trays in various sizes and heights. To get a tiered look, here's one of our favorite entertaining hacks. Julia, our Creative Content Director, says to take a bowl, flip it upside down, and then place a platter on top for an instant cake stand! It adds height and interest without having to buy a new piece!
