Entertaining on Valentine’s Day


Are you having a party for two (or three or four…) on Valentine’s Day? Wouldn’t this darling cake
iced in mint colour topped with a pink sprinkled heart be the perfect thing?  I think this
gâteau is so pretty and would make a wonderful party dessert.  I’m also incredibly inspired
by this table layout via Kara’s Party Ideas; the cupcake liner pompoms in vases, the pretty vintage
punch glasses and the lace heart garland…how delicate and lovely!

Of course, if you’re having a party, you might be giving away favours.  I found this adorable
Valentine’s Day gift wrapping set on Etsy that would be just the thing for packaging gifts for
your guests.  Wrap up a box of artisan chocolates or copies of your favourite romantic book!

Oh, I love parties! And I love gathering entertaining ideas here.

    literal heart throbs about this v-day insp. keep it coming, from one fellow romantic and sweet treat lover to another, your posts really kick my can to get something started in my own kitchen area. make way for pink + red sprinkles….um, without chemical coloring hopefully though ; )

    blue cake and sparkle heart is almost too much for my senses to manage today, saving that pic asap. drool catcher required now i think! xo ♥
