A Blue Valentine's

I had the pleasure of spending time with friends this past Saturday
on a lunch I hosted to showcase my work. 
I named the event, Blue Valentine's
Why? Just because as much as I love Valentine's Day
and all the pink, white and red decorations
that comes around on these days leading to it,
I also found that blue can be as gentle,
beautiful, lovely, inspired, romantic as you want it to be.
  There is actually a lot of blue hearts
and blue colors party related items out there to get you going.
After all, it is a beautiful Wedding color.
  I should say that my heart is not blue
and this party has no relation to the now released movie Blue Valentine,
although I am dying to watch it.


Boxes from  Lil Anniebell that I embellished with blue twine and
blue heart buttons from  Supplies by Susan

 Candy coated fortune cookies were given on the beautiful bags 
from our sponsor Susan's Greetings

 These fabulous sugar cookies from Lori's Place were given in the boxes.

 Vanilla Mini Bundt Cakes coated with White Chocolate 
and adorned with LOVE flags custom made from Little Pumpkin Papers

 I absolutely love my marshmallow birds from Have it sweet
topped this clasic vanilla cake from my local bakery, Magpies

 The creative and talented face behind Paper and Pigtails, Kori
designed this editable labels for our party.  So excited!

  Burlap Runner from The Shabby Chic Cottage

This cute print is a free printable and in your choice of color
from Sprik Space, visit to print yours and leave them some love in a comment!

 Chicken Salad Croissants and Heart Pizzas for lunch...a sweet deal
with Peach Iced Tea

 And I have to thank Glorious Treats for sharing her "recipe"
for Chocolate was indeed, too easy!

 Sweet Treats...

 and crafty ones....I love my tags that Susan's Greetings designed for us!

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies that attended lunch
and encourage my ideas and creativity!
Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Amazing! Looks like your friends were in for a real treat. All of your desserts look so yummy. Now I want some candy jars for myself.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a gorgeous party! Love how you used an atypical color. I'm flattered that you incorporated my printable, too. Stay tuned, because I plan to feature this on my blog sometime soon. :)
