{inspiration} a vintage valentine: part two

Welcome back to “A Vintage Valentine!” If you missed Part One, click here. Now let’s get back to the party details ‘cuz it’s time for dessert!

• • • • •

The Crew unanimously wanted to include a sweets table at our little {inspiration} party.

Another lacy burlap table runner graced the sweet treats table. Our white paper plate backdrop was embellished with a burlap pennant banner, paper chains and lace balloons.

Our soirée included sweet treats inspired by the Vintage Valentines. Fondant lollipops topped coconut cupcakes and acai and blackberry pears were served in mini cups with taster spoons.

Lynlee’s Petite Cakes sponsored our collaboration and created adorable fondant toppers for the simple sugar cookies and vanilla cupcakes. The toppers were inspired by each of our Vintage Valentines.

Treats were displayed on a wooden box accented with a heart, twine and striped paper and a two-tiered serving piece that was embellished with a doily inspired flower and sprinkles.

Conversation Cakes were made by attaching a Conversation Heart inspired fondant topper to a Little Debbie Snack Cake.

Rustic cherry heart-shaped galettes and mini pies were inspired by the “Sweetie Pie” Valentine.

Sweet Temptation’s beautiful lace Oreos were served on a family heirloom.

The “Doughnuts and Coffee…and Cocoa Bar” was set up on our dining room hutch. Burlap pennant banners and lace coffee cups—inspired by the sign’s artwork—accented the hutch.

Hot cocoa with marshmallow hearts is a great option for non-coffee drinkers to enjoy with doughnuts.

A doily and doughnut inspired strawberry cake and mini doughnuts were displayed next to the hutch.

The party space was adorned with handmade decorations including Valentine paper medallions, paper chains and sweet party signs.

That’s it! Thank you so much for taking the time to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our Crew. I hope you enjoyed yourself and are inspired to create a lovely celebration for the sweet ones in your life!

Our sweet treats table would not have been the same without the generous donations from our sponsors—Lynlee’s Petite Cakes and Sweet Temptations! Thank you, Lynlee and Janet, for supporting of our lil’ project! We hope you’ll visit their shops because their sweet treats are truly outstanding…and delicious!

In honor of our collaboration and since it was…
