Easy Valentine Goody Bags Station
Now, you may be wondering where is the best place to buy goody bag fillers. For this goody bags station project, I went to one of my favorite spots to grab party supplies, Dollar Tree. They always have a slew of fun and festive goodies that are perfect for goody bags, especially around the holidays. Now you could include both candy and non-candy treats like I did or just do one or the other.
You will find that places like Dollar Tree, the Target dollar section and Walmart have loads of budget-friendly surprises, so you can really load up your goody bags station with plenty of goodies. First, I recommend you choose a color palette and then seek out treats in those colors.
You probably noticed the red, pink and purple theme I have going on here. They’re my daughter’s favorite colors, so choosing that particular palette was a no brainer for her Valentine’s Day goody bags. Obviously, that was a great palette for heart day, but you can make a goody bags station for any occasion, using any color combo you choose! It would be so fun to do a for a kid’s birthday party, but I digress…
For my goody bags, I chose things like heart shaped glasses, slinkies, headbands, gemstone rings, all kinds of pink, red and purple candy and even little toy unicorns and painting kits. They’re basically all my baby girl’s favorite things. She’s yet to meet a craft or piece of candy she didn’t love. Bwah! Don’t worry. I’ll hang on to the candy so she doesn’t eat herself sick. Haha!
