Pink & Red

While it's barely 2011, Valentine's Day is just around the corner. To celebrate, my sister is throwing a party at her new house and has enlisted yours truly to help bring Cupid's Day to life.

As much as I would love to use more pennant flags, I'm going to try branching out. I'm currently inspired by romantic tea parties, so my first thoughts are of pale pink flowers with pops of red, mini cakes, and lots of lace. I'm normally not a huge fan of the color red (sorry, Dawgs), but I just can't protest varying shades of light pink and red on February 14th.

I would love to find a way to incorporate this backdrop from the Ruche Holiday Look Book, but in shades of pink and red. Don't some of the strands look like cupcake papers?

Lastly (for today), below are two snippets of (very rough) invitation designs I've been toying with this weekend. The first one is more a page of ideas, and the wording is definitely wrong on the second one.

Here's to hoping that baby gets out soon and can be in attendance at the party!


  1. Isn't Sunday the 13th? Hey what about taking all the hearts out of a deck of playing cards and incorporating them into the decor?

  2. yeah, it's totally the 13th. oops. and that'd be fun! especially with the whimsical theme we're going with. invitations to follow...
