Be my Valentine


d3b93a988d853e0290e8b214294b36f8

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 does the Fox say?


Oh yes, if you didn’t know before, you definitely know now! By now – the whole word knows what the fox say! If you’ve missed it (where have you been?) – you can see it here:

Of course, as a fellow Norwegian I almost feel a little bit proud of Ylvis for their success even though their song is not on my everyday playlist. However, there is no doubt that their success with the song has been enormous! When I went to New York last month, there was referrals to the song in tv shows, magazine articles, and – the list goes on!

The over-the-nigh success of Ylvis also has influenced the party trends, and I had to smile when I saw the following party from The Hostess with the Mostess some weeks ago! So funny!

Become a kitchen goddess


I´ve quite recently taken an interest in baking. I really love it! I’m not much for cooking – but luckily I’m married to a man with great cooking skills – I’m a lucky girl!

I like the baking because it makes me relax, I get to make yummy things for my family, and I can use my love for aesthetics. And speaking of aesthetics, of course every kitchen goddess need to look the part.

Therefore, today I’m going to show you some of my favorite aprons:

I wanted an apron in true Bree van de Kamp style:

bree-van-de-kamp-dress-21

And I found it:

Strawberry-Shortcake

This beautiful and oh so sweet apron is from Flirty Aprons – they have so many wonderful models, check it out!
They also have the sweetest aprons for kids – when my little girls is a bit older, she will get a true copy of my pink apron!

Also, I love this model – it’s sweet, fun and pretty! I see it as perfect for the times you have fancy dinners and have your dress on. If you need to wear an apron, what would be better than this one?

Pearl-front

 

 

Green Gate, which I’ve already talked about several times, have such sweet nostalgic patterns:

greengate-forkle-apron-phoebe-mint

 

And, look at this sweet model for your little princess:

greengate-forkle-child-apron-phoebe-mint

 

I bet she would love to help you in the kitchen in this apron!

In Leilas General Store, you’ll also find great aprons for both you and your little one:

forklade-british-rose

Love this vintage pattern!

I recently found Madame Choup, and I adore their products. They almost look like dresses! This on is my favorite:

The cupcake pattern was perfect!

I hope you feel inspired to find the kitchen goddess within!

Teacups and Tutus party


I earlier wrote a post about tea parties for adults, and this time I’m showing you the most adorable tea party for your little ones!

Oce again I’ve been inspired by The Hostess with the Mostess, and she featured a party made by The Pear – and it’s just every little girl’s dream come true!

A night at the Oscars


In late February it’s time for the 85th Academy Awards to be held. The celebration is GLAMOROUS from start to end. So, what will be better than hosting your very own Oscar party?

I love this party idea! If you make your own “nominee” labels, this party can also work great as a birthday party, or also as a work party, where you’re nominating “employee of the month”, “best sales department” etc.

Who doesn’t love a little glamour in their life!
