Valentine’s Knife + Tassel DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I ran into CB2 the other day and was stopped short by these cute little porcelain knives they carry. As I stood there, a poem my grandmother used to write me at Valentine’s Day popped into my head. Knife + poem = a sweet little valentine for less than the price of a card! Colorful mini tassels add a bit of color. Tie it all up, put it in a rigid mailer, and mail it to your valentines near and far, or hand out as favors at a Valentine’s party.

Cupid’s Arrow Valentine Cupcake Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I know there are several pretty versions of this out there, but this take on Cupid’s arrow as a cupcake topper has something special – the tip of the arrow is actually an edible candy heart. Which means, more sweets for your sweethearts!

Valentines from Pear Tree Greetings

These custom Valentines Day cards are the perfect solution for Mom’s who want to do something special with their kids for Valentines but don’t have the time. Pear Tree Greetings creates custom Valentine’s Day cards through their site. It’s super easy and affordable. I loved browsing through all of their new Valentine’s Day options: they have photo cards, classroom valentines for kids, stickers, and even address labels. But, we ended up choosing these awesome classroom cards for our kids (although, these photobooth ones look  fun too!) I love that they were so easy to personalize with photos, and it was fun to pick different color schemes for each of our kids. Valentine’s Day is in less than 3 weeks, but there’s still plenty of time to order your cards in time before then!

A Heart Party

by Casey Baudoin

A heart party is a great idea for this time of year… for your little girl, bride, baby shower, or Valentine’s Day.  The possibilities are endless!  String up some heart garland, add some heart balloons, guests can wear heart headbands, and let’s not forget that cake!
