Valentine’s Day Party Ideas


Happy Valentine’s day to our sweet followers! Valentine’s day is the perfect day (or night) to throw a romantic-themed party for your significant other, group of good friends, or for the children in your life! Here are some creative ideas to throw a great V-Day bash:


Set up a sweet table display using pink and red hues, romantic flower bouquets, and sweet treats for each guest


Use heart-shaped desserts in red and pink colors to create the perfect dessert bar


Goodie bags for each guest is a great way to remind them of the party, even after they get home! Give adults candles or sweets, and kids activity books and stickers. Add handwritten love notes to each bag for a touch of personalization


Check out Martha Stewart Living to see how to make these DIY felt fortune cookies- great as favors or as an activity for kids to make!

Cinco de Mayo inspiration board


Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! This spirited holiday is a celebration of Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. While just a regional holiday in Mexico, it has been embraced mostly in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage.

Jewel-Like Henna Cupcakes and Desserts

We ran across these scrumptious and gorgeous hand-crafted baked goods by Creme Delicious, a New York based cake boutique. They describe each cake as a, “unique piece of art and an elegant edible jewel which can mark any occasion special.” The sugary works of art resemble the intricate designs of henna tattoos, a sort of body art that can be adorned by Indian brides at Indian weddings. The edible henna cakes take up to 30 minutes to design each (wow!) and are available in four flavors (chocolate, vanilla, green tea, and red velvet). As of now, Creme Delicious offers the cakes in only two options: heart or square, but perhaps they will open up the options in the future. Our favorite part of the ordering process? Deciding what colors to decorate the cakes with! Currently, these jewel-like cakes come in red, pink, orange (our favorite color!), black, white, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Did we mention Oprah Magazine featured these edible masterpieces? Pretty legit in our book!
