For Valentines Day this year I wanted to do something different, and I wanted it to be a project for the boys (This can of course be done for any occasion or no occasion at all). I talked to them about it and they liked the idea of having a Valentine Brunch for mine and John's parents. The rule was that it is the BOYS project. That meant they had to help plan, arrange, prepare and put on the event with as little help from me as possible.
I started off by making invitations. Since I wanted them to be pretty but simple enough for the boys to do, I got some magazines and had them go through and choose all valentine images, cut them out and glue it to paper leaving no spaces to see the paper.
I then had them cut the ribbon that they, again, chose at Michaels. I allowed them to carefully hot gule it to the dried invitations.
Here's the final result!
Next we worked on the menu together. They decided that a recipe a friend gave me for a baked french toast dish would be best because they could prep it the night before the big event.
Because they like to go above and beyond they served the food themselves to each of our parents and removed the plate ware when everyone was finished eating.
Brunch was a success and I know the boys enjoyed every aspect of putting it on themselves.
