Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have any romantic plans? Did you mail paper treats to loved ones? Anyone planning on popping the question today…?

My Valentine to you comes in the form of an inspiration board. In terribly predictable colors. By accenting this nearly translucent pink with pops of very red red, I think I’ve avoided being overly sweet. I’m thinking red ink on barely pink paper, red fruit and bisque roses, perhaps bright red lipstick beneath a blush colored veil.

Mood: sweet Valentine
Palette: seashell pink, crimson red hots

Top row from left: Mast Bros. Chocolate bar via Sunday Suppers, photo of red striped socks by Weddings By Two via 100 Layer Cake, photo of red bird and Twigs & Honey feather headpiece from Kiss the Groom, room with chandelier via Dress Design Decor
Row 2: rose centerpiece with pomegranate from Martha Stewart Weddings, heart doily with “love” calligraphy by Crystal Kluge, ring pillow with felt flowers by Llubav
Row 3: pink cake with fondant decorations from Martha Stewart Weddings, red peony photo by Elizabeth Messina, pale pink wedding favors from Martha Stewart Weddings, “Love One Another” ring dish by Paloma’s Nest

    I love this inspiration board… probably because it is very similar to my color palette. Just add gold!

    I was just trying to figure out a lovely way to work the V-day colors together the other night – of COURSE you would have something wonderful, now wouldn’t you?

    I’m not a pink person, but I wouldn’t need anyone to twist my arm if it’s combined with red, the way you did here!! Love it!

    I love this collage of vintage romance. I am always on the lookout for a perfect gift or romantic gesture… I found this Sundial that can be made with names engraved on it. I am absolutely in love: http://birdbathsundial.com/ Enjoy!
