A Little Sparkle with a Lot of Love

I am especially fond of personalizing photo cards, just like Henry and I did with these Christmas cards from Tiny Prints.

It's obvious that I am a huge fan of Tiny Print's great products! In fact, I was inspired by one of their invitations to create a very romantic yet chic and sophisticated table setting. Naturally,  delicious desserts and cakes came along as well!
Often times, Valentine's Day events quickly become very playful and whimsical, but I wanted to make this party really modern and more sophisticated while still keeping it very much about love and romance. 
 A trip to the craft store and a few bunches of fresh flowers later, a gorgeous table was set. Red, pink, and gold truly paved the way for this chic event filled with tea and desserts.  
Every good party always makes their guests feel extra special. In this case, individual packages of macaron pairs were provided as edible Valentines. To make them, I simply filled a favor box (available at most craft stores) with a square of pretty paper, two macarons, and sealed the top with a beautiful gift tag to match the invitations.
Adding to the excitement is my small business's, Paper Heart Patisserie, first collaboration appearance! All of the macarons and cakes were made by Paper Heart Patisserie and designed especially for the event. 

Gosh, who's ready for tea and dessert now?

Thank you SO much to Tiny Prints for this incredible collaboration opportunity! I'm still swooning and very giddy about it all!

Valentine's Day Sweets!

Valentine's Day is less than one week away! Although everyday should be a the perfect occasion to let someone know you love them, this holiday's festive hearts-galore theme is pretty adorable. Here are some ideas for sweet treats to celebrate the day.

Vanilla cake jars and rose vanilla cupcakes

Don't forget the perfect sized cake for two! Date night dessert? Yes, please!
