We recently created a little Valentine's playdate for Mila and Brixton, and we were so honored to have it featured on Woman's Day. I wanted to share more images today since it IS Valentine's Day!
The theme was “hearts on hearts on hearts!” and embraced Valentine’s Day with every shade of pink, red and purple. For the “tablecloth,” we covered a long sheet of kraft paper with hearts in various sizes and colors. This is something that can be recreated at home very easily. Layering is the key -- with a mix of pre-cut larger hearts, and smaller ones made with a heart puncher. We used simple school glue to adhere the hearts to the kraft paper and then draped the whimsical tablecloth over a small kids' table. The sheepskin throws then adorned their little chairs to add a really cute, luxurious vibe.
The centerpiece is a homemade gluten-free vanilla cake. We used natural beet dye to color the frosting.
We try to always have a fresh floral element and this time it came from my backyard. The coral camellias were the perfect in-season touch to top the cake and table.
The kids snacked on treats and drank pink lemonade while they made valentines for their dads and played with their massive red heart balloons. It was a really sweet and fun afternoon! Here are a bunch of pics!!!
