THE ROCK FATHER is a PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorThis past weekend, Valentine's Day got an early start with a very special PEANUTS-themed party featuring SNOOPY and his sister BELLE. Co-hosted by "the Little Red-Haired Girl" herself—aka Francesca Capaldi (DOG WITH A BLOG), the 10-year-old actress who plays the character in this Fall's THE PEANUTS MOVIE - the party took place at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad, California, where Capaldi and friends tried on the latest Snoopy and his Sister Belle fashions from Target, danced to DJ-provided tunes, and decorated cupcakes with decorations from Cakes.com. Of course, they also enjoyed watching the classic Peanuts special, BE MY VALENTINE, CHARLIE BROWN, set to air on ABC alongside A CHARLIE BROWN VALENTINE on February 13th at 8pmEST/7pmCT. While my girls and I weren't able to make the party in-person (2,000 miles would've been a long drive), Pastry Chef Franck Riffaud of the Park Hyatt Aviara was kind enough to share his recipe for chocolate cake (or cupcakes) so that we could play along at home... and so YOU can as well! As a PEANUTS BRAND Ambassador, I'm helping to spread some Valentine's Day love with The Ultimate Snoopy & Belle Valentine's Prize Pack. One (1) lucky winner will score a fantastic "party in a box," while everyone can enjoy some delicious cake as we did here today!

Francesca Capaldi at the party...

"On November 6th, 2015, Capaldi co-stars as the voice of The Little Red-Haired Girl in THE PEANUTS MOVIE, as Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation.  Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest.  From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day."
