we love love

well it has been a bit sweet friends! life just gets busy and the blog gets neglected ;) i wanted to hop on and share some pictures i snapped of our valentine's table we set up last week. we had friends that are like family over for dinner to enjoy an early love celebration last weekend, and then the girls and i will light all the candles and try and make our favorite guy feel extra special tomorrow night with a special dinner at home...away from all of the crowds:) so on with the love.....
the gorgeous table runner and napkins are from jenny at everyday-occasions.myshopify.com .....i am just in love with them! i can use them year round, they were just made a bit more 'valentine' by adding touches of the pale blush. (and i can't say blush and not think of steel magnolias...(insert shelby saying "my colors are blush and bashful")...my most favorite movie EVER!!!
the fresh flowers are from trader joe's...and i wish you could smell how amazing the hyacinths smells!
emme grace hand painted all of our place cards....she calls me 'mi madre' all of the time, i thought it was too cute and only appropriate that she put that on my place card;)
and can we talk about how cute these tiny tapers are that are also from jenny?! i am going to need them for every party we ever have from now until forever!
this precious banner is made by rifle paper co.....
snapped these at dusk, right before our special guests arrived....and what is it about a few candles that just make the table seem so 'fancy'?:)
and these little love bugs....i mean c'mon! how cute are they?! the petite tart pans they are in and the PRECIOUS scalloped napkins are also from jenny. and the adorable check paper runner is from hester and cook, i used the black check for jeffrey's birthday last month and had to go back for the red AND the blue...they are just too cute!
these sweet little pink boxes (also from jenny who has everything you need for a perfect party and table;) are what we will be putting the love bug cakes in to deliver to some special valentine's....
so i hope you friends have the best day tomorrow celebrating love in your home....i'm just hoping for some homemade cards and maybe a few extra hugs and kisses....those are always the very best gifts.
