{Straight from the Studio} I Heart Valentine's Day Collection Photo Shoot

Well, it seems as though our "I Heart Valentine's Day" shoot has been seen by many of you (THANK YOU to all of the featuring blogs for your support!).... however, we still need to share it on our OWN site! Becca Bond Photography did such an awesome job, and I can't wait to share all the photos...

This is by far one of our favorite projects that we've done. We included LIVE subjects this time (mostly our children ;)) to show off some fabulous clothing by MiniMooh. That posed a whole new aspect of styling, but it was SO much fun.

This post is image heavy...
but a nice sale surprise at the BOTTOM of the post!

We had major inspiration to do something different for the hanging decor. The paper plate polyhedrons are SO easy to make and we were pretty excited to create something unique.
You can find the tutorial on Disney Family Fun....

We used the printable logos as hanging detail on all of the apothecary glass jars.
Cotton candy made a GREAT filler display in the tall glass jars. The cookies from Allyson Jane were strung with ribbon and hung over these fabulous glass apothecary jars.... Don't you just LOVE the cookies!?
Here are some more of the beautiful cookies from Allyson Jane. She baked them with a hole in them so we could embellish with a ribbon. I love adding another texture to the cookies!

This cake was from a regular plain-old bakery (seriously - $8 at Target!) and we dressed it up with fancy and beautiful fondant from Sweet Petal Bakery. We love this option to decorate our own cake with professional decor/fondant!

Lollipops with the printable lollipop covers were stuck into the fun layered jello (SO easy to make!)

Patterned papers were used with heart craft punches to create this super fun garland that hung on the front of the table.

How cute and simple are these awesome fabric layered flowers....
the beauty is - they never die! ;-)

Don't you love the mini chocolate bars with the printable wrappers?
Also, the hershey kisses labels!?

These adorable lollis were from This Charming Candy...
They were GREAT props for the kids, too!How cute is the dress from Mini Mooh!?
...and the bow tie on my son, Jeffrey! (Mini Mooh)

We got this chalkboard at the Dollar store near us... what a fun prop it made for the kiddos....

Printable folding labels...

The cupcakes from Cupcrazed Cakery in Baxter....
Heather does such an amazing job making the most
unique flavors of cupcakes! These were scrumptious!

We love party flags - they looked really cute on top of the paper straws (from Bake It Pretty). Drink wrap wrapped around the Jones Soda....
Here is my little Peanut (Pierson)....

Are you smiling yet?

This is funny. The first photo Becca took of (my son) Pierson and Arden was this...
... the second shot....
It just took Arden's mom coming into the room and doing something cute to light up their faces!
Arden and Grayce showing off their MiniMooh dresses....

Here is Adria's adorable daughter, Grayce.... so cute!

Jeffrey (Anders) and Grayce (Ruff)... best of buddies!

Playin a little xx0 ;-)
Jeffrey LOVED the macarons from Sparkles Kitchen....
So did Grayce!

We used the patterned papers to make these hearts that
we topped the oreo truffles with....I just love all of the patterns!
(PS. I made these oreo truffles with my cookie girls - we get together every Christmas to make cookies and this year we made these! So fun, right?!)

We included some new design accessories in this package. Favor hangtag, and a template for a box with heart closure.... and a COOTIE catcher / fortune teller.... (bringing back memories yet?)
We used the twine from The Cupcake Social to create a sweet little pom on top.

Printable valentines with a folding pocket envelope to put around the valentine...
Patterned papers, again, being used! Aren't these little bottles so cute!?
Beautiful macarons from Sparkles Kitchen...
I'll leave you with this sweet shot....

Thank you to ALL of our fabulous contributors!

The 50% off sale has ended.... BUT....
We have so much LOVE for all of our fans, followers and clients - we are going to offer the printable design collection for 25% off through Valentine's day!
Get yours HERE....

The paper plates are just BRILLIANT! I adore the cotton candy too!

I must ask - did you paint the paper plates pink, or were you able to find colored ones. Such a great display - thanks for sharing!

Mel said...

This is the most gorgeous Valentine's party I have ever seen!

Lindsay said...

The apothecary jars are absolutely fabulous...I wonder if they were expensive to buy though? The tic tac toe game with pink/red chalk is very clever and the kids love to play it so...great idea!
