Paper Doily Makes: Valentines Day Strawberry Milkshake

milkshake1 milkshake2 milkshake3

It’s that time of year when many of you are thinking about the little tokens of love and appreciation you can share with your loved ones this Valentines Day. I have never thrown any huge Valentines Day celebrations but I do use any excuse to be creative and if my husband benefits from my efforts, then I’m sure he would agree that thats even better!

This Valentines Day Strawberry Milkshake is a wonderful idea if you are looking for something impressive, inexpensive, delicious and easy. It can be styled beautifully in a variety of ways. I have styled it with crocheted hearts and wooden pegs, but the possibilities really are endless. I crafted a heart paper straw in a few seconds to add that extra special touch. Red glitter paper is readily available in many craft stores, along with heart paper cutters. Paper straws are everywhere at the moment and the paper hearts can easily be attached with a small piece of clear sellotape or a small amount of UHU glue. if you aren’t feeling particularly crafty then similar straws are available here at Paper Doily Party Shop.

If I have inspired you to have a try then please do use the recipe below. I would love to hear from you if you decide to make it for yourself as a treat or for a loved one. Here goes..
