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!

Little Lamb first birthday party

Yes, these days I’m sort of obsessed with first birthday parties. But my very own little baby girl is turning one – in just a few days. Of course, this will be celebrated in style – and I’ll share the party pictures with you!

But, today I’ll share another party with you – one that I’ve had in my inspiration folder for some time. And this party is so well executed that it makes me want to cry a little (no, not really, or…. yes…actually it does), because I realize that this amount of detail is an enormous undertaking! Perhaps I’ll aim at something a bit simpler for my daughters party, but I’m definately inspired! It’s simply stunning! Here’s the gorgeous Little Lamb party from Half Baked:

I love the colour scheme in the wonderful neutrals. I feel it gives the party a sophisticated feel, while it’s still a child’s birthday

I think it was a great idea to play on the colours that’s in the interior of the house. That way, you get a visual impression that is chic and put together!

Love the wine bottles in their knitted sweaters!

The sweet little lamb is used throughout the theme, together with fluffy, cuddly, and soft materials to really highligt the feel of the party.
