Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we can’t wait.
I’m a sucker for valentine’s day, it’s no secret. Pink, red, hearts and glitz…it’s the girliest of holidays and I love it.
We put together a little shoot for you to give you some inspiration in love…hope you enjoy!
Red roses, champagne and a variety of desserts makes for a sweet gathering.
We used this gorgeous punch bowl from Williams Sonoma and filled it with red hot cinnamon popcorn that we found at Whole Foods.
Light up your romance with LOVE sparklers. They are perfect toppers for this simple cake from Empire Cake and makes for a romantic activity when the lights go down…
Festive and easy: Dip strawberries into melted chocolate and let them dry for a few minutes on parchment paper. Boom. Love bites.
Now what’s Valentine’s day without a cute outfit? I am loving this jumpsuit and lately I’ve been pretty into these headbands…this one in particular is from Henri Bendel.
To dress up our table in a chic and affordable way we lay down gold sheeting from Party City. They sell it in a roll 15 feet long. I’d have to say it’s one of their best kept secrets. You could use it in so many creative ways from table liners to signage and it comes in a variety of fabulous colors.
If you’re having friends over to celebrate the holiday and need to serve a good mocktail for those Mama’s to be…we suggest the sparkling Izze’s. We chose sparkling grapefruit juice since it’s pink and dressed it up with heart shaped ice cubes.
Now here’s some exciting news that we’ll leave you with for the day…we’re giving away a Valentine’s Day for 2 in a Box styled by yours truly, LMP! We’ve partnered with our friend Mommy Shorts on this so click on over to her feed @MommyShorts for the details to enter. The winner will be announced tomorrow so get on it!
