Valentine's Day Dinner For LaurenConrad!
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I had the pleasure of creating a "Romantic Valentine's Dinner For Two" for celebrity, Lauren Conrad! As you all might know, she has a blog where she inspires readers to live creatively, and as you might not know I am her biggest fan. I have admired her style since I saw her on Laguna Beach!
For starters we set the scene at the beautiful Inspirador here in Chandler, AZ. I am engaged, so right now I especially appreciate beautiful venues like this! And how delicious is that couch and coffee table from Classic Party Rentals? I love white settings when using pops of color in my decor!
We carried a red, hot pink, and gold color palette throughout the dinner setting and this romantic canoodle by the fire! Don't worry, we will be sharing the full DIY tutorial of this XO marquee sign this week on the blog! Yep I made it! My fiance was pretty impressed, and I gotta say, I was pretty impressed too! Hehe! Here are all of my projects for Lauren Conrad in case you are interested.
You have to have something sweet on Valentine's Day right?! We whipped up these Healthier Organic Caramel Apples using beets to make them red, and they were oh so delicious! We've got you covered with the recipe. We will be sharing it this week on the blog.
It's all in the details! I decided to spruce up our wooden utensils by painting a red and hot pink pattern on them. Again, we will be sharing the full DIY tutorial on the blog!
These little favors will have your honey coming back for more! We grabbed up some clear boxes, filled them with popcorn (healthy again), and glued on some ribbon and our favor tags.
We set the table using gold card stock for place mats. We also used wooden spoons and dotted them with a hot pink stamp and a pencil eraser to make the circles. We also decorated the chairs with ribbon and these red paper medallions from Petite Party Studio.
I couldn't resist mimicking the scene from Lady and the Tramp! That was one of my favorites growing up. I still love it, and I can't get over that scene AND how cute this reenactment turned out. You should definitely try it with your Valentine. It's super fun!
Ah! I can't get over these favors with the favor tags!
This Vegetarian Spaghetti is as delicious as it is pretty! We gussied it up with our Valentine's Day printable tent cards!
Another tutorial we are sharing with you on the blog - these Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa Sticks.
To make the balloons pop ... well not literally ... to make them pretty I should say ... we added tissue paper garland strings. You guessed it! We are sharing the full DIY tutorial with you on the blog.
Or you can pop out of the box yourself ... that might be more fun!
To make your babe feel special, make these vintage photo serving trays. We will tell you how this week on the blog!
I had some old silver vases laying around, so I painted them gold using gold gilding. To me the gold was a better fit with the decor!
And your boo is sure to give you something sweet!
I love the way these pillows shine against the white couch!
