OUR DAILY PINS

My Daughter's Vintage Inspired Valentine's Day Party

 

I am so excited to share the Valentine Brunch that my daughter, Felicity hosted this weekend for her little cousins who were all in town.

The brunch was a fun party for all of the girls and the best part is it only cost me around $25, because all the decorations were made from things I already had or borrowed so I only had to buy the food, and I got some really great deals on all of it.

We tried to stick with healthy foods for the menu so we did French Toast on whole grain bread and dark chocolate fondue with strawberries, grapes and bananas.  The things hanging from lace on the display cabinet are the Valentine's Felicity and I made for each of her guest.  You can Click Here to see more on how we made those.
 
 
We used pretty clear plastic plates on gold chargers with paper doillies and fancy die cuts in-between the two plates and then put a chipboard letter with each girl's initial on top for seating labels (the seating labels were probably one of the things the little girls loved most).  We also made a pretty little red rose ball to hang from the dinning room light.
We decorated the food table with a pink satin (it's not a table cloth, it's just satin bought by the yard) and then covered that with a pink throw-away party table cloth.  The punch fountain was a big hit - we decorated the bottom of it with a pink feather boa and made a festive flower arrangement with different flowers I took out of arrangements in my bathroom, Felicity's room and my bedroom and tied some lace around the vase. and pinned a cute paper medallion decoration on one of the sticks coming out of the top of the arrangement.

I love my fiesta ware dishes because all the different colors can be used for different occassions like this.  We put the serving pieces all on pretty white paper doillies.
My favorite part of the decorations were the pink tutus I put around the buttom of both cake stands.

                                                                                  Pin It

I normally have green curtains in my dinning room but for this occassion I brought in the red and lace curtains from my bedroom.  I made the banner hanging on the curtain rod for a decoration for the brunch but I have more plans for it in my house in the future (more on that later).
I used paper medallions / wheels in several places.  You can Click Here to see my tutorial on how to make these.
When the party was pretty much over and all the girls were running around playing I caught Felicity sneaking back up on the table and eating the last of the grapes.  You will also notice that the pretty feather headband she had on at the beginning of the party had disappeared by the time it was over - the style of headband she was wearing is available in our online store: http://www.inspiredbyfelicity.com/
I have gotten pretty much everything cleaned up, now I just have to pack up and return the things that were borrowed (fondue pot and punch fountain).... I'm wore out, but Felicity and her cousins had a great time so it was worth it!
