Be my Valentine


It’s just a few weeks away – the day we each year celebrate with the one (or ones) we love! It can be a boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, mother, father, sister or brother. No matter who it is, be with the ones you love for Valentine’s Day! And this year, we’ve got the added bonus of February 14th being on a Friday – yay!

As the party planning geek I am, I’ve already started gathering some inspiration that I this would look nice for a Valentine’s Day party. I’m picturing a party palette of red, pink and white. Pink softens the red, but red makes it more edgy than just a pink and white palette.

Here are two dessert tables which I really like:



Who can resist this little sweetheart??

I love the red and white striped background in the nect picture – I think it makes a strong and fresh statement! Together with the pink it just works even better!


Here’s another example of stripes in red and white. When this is paired with the more neutral combination of grey and white instead of pink, it’s very elegant.


And let’s not forget the important details:


Send your Valentine a card – I love this one, which also happens to be a free printables, which we love!


Make (or buy!) some sweet treats! Who doesn’t love these little sweeties?


We must not forget the hearts! I love everything chocolate, and if it comes in the shape of a heart, I’d probably love it even more – if possible!


Use hearts as decoration!


Perhaps a little Valentine’s gift?
Use heart decorations on the wrapping!

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?


Snow Princess Birthday Party

My little princess in born in early Spring, so unfortunately this will not be the theme for her upcoming second birthday. However, I’m completely in love with the styling of this theme, which I saw at Hostess with the Mostess. The colour scheme of white, silver, grey, pink and hints of yellow is perfection,  and the details are just completely magical!

Right now I’m searching for a theme to my daughters birthday in March – so looking forward to planning it! Do you have any suggestions for the theme??

Clean slate

It’s 2014.

A new year. New possibilities. A clean slate.

I don’t have very many new years resolutions for 2014, other than this one:



I will show my family and friends love every day, and I will eliminate things that don’t give my life meaning, and fill the time with things I care about.

Oh…..and I will start blogging again – because I want to, and because I find it exciting.

Happy New Year everyone – hope you’ll visit the blog in the time to come!
