Party Design & Styling
When I was designing these Modern Valentine's Printables, I couldn't keep the song "All You Need is Love" out of my head, so I took it quite literally and focused on that. So no gimmicks. Just Love. And Hearts.
The background pattern I created for the design is a nod to my designer's sketch book, full of scribbles! Plus, I think as far as patterns go, it feels quite modern and 'urban'. The fresh colors really do pop and the hearts give it a cute and romantic feel without being too OTT. So I think this collection would look fab for either a school play-date, kid's party or grown up Valentine's Party!
For the styling I wanted to create something modern, fresh and with pops of color. For the desserts table itself, I used the small surface and multiple levels of an old dresser to display the sweet treats and add interest to the eye. The stunning ribbon garland from A to Zebra Celebrations really helped to add color and texture to the ensemble.
Desserts Table & Sweet Treats
Sweet treats on the dessert table included home-made cream cheese cake pops (tutorial here), fuschia, yellow and blue French macaroons, vanilla cupcakes adorned with wrappers and cupcake toppers, and a home-made two-tier cake topped with the most adorable peg dolls from Craft That Party. Assorted candies in the colors of the party added the perfect finishing touch.
Favors included little Valentine's Favor Boxes from Bird's Party printable collection, filled with Hershey's Kisses - very appropriate for the occasion! ?
