We had the best time this week in New York, spreading a little love at our Valentine-making party in collaboration with our partner the U.S. Postal Service. In keeping with the theme, turns out either sleet nor snow nor Snowpocalypse Nemo could keep all these intrepid families from coming out on a wintry Saturday, eating some treats, getting creative with glitter glue and sparkles, and addressing all their gorgeous creations so we could send them out to their loved ones with the Sealed with Love stamp.

Don’t miss a great giveaway for 5 readers below!

Cool Mom Picks Spread the Love Party

Enjoy some of our favorite pictures from the event. Plus, get some fun ideas for your own next party! Like creative craft tables (thanks to Martha Stewart Crafts for the awesome supplies!), a fun DIY photobooth, chalkboards with ideas for your card list, mini mailboxes spelling out your own holiday wish , cand of course, heart-shaped Rice Krispy bars. Yum.

Plus, we’ve got a few goodies for five of our readers below. Because hey, we like spreading the love too.
