A Girl's Valentines Day Dinner

The table! How perfect does my painting look with this setting? They were made for each other. Love my PartyPoms

A little closer... ahhh the flowers aren't centered. Its killing me.

White CB2 plates, black floral dessert plates from Anthropologie. And no that isnt a jail cell on the top left, its the staircase up to our roof.

 A little floral arrangement I put together. Didn't like how you could see the stems through the vase so I wrapped it in some ribbon. Love the way it turned out. And yes, I filled champagne glasses with pink M&Ms.

And even though I kicked my special man friend out of the house for the night, he still brought me these gorgeous flowers. I really heart him. Ohh, and you get a little peak at my little cake stand that I originally saw in Rue

And last but not least, some of the ladies who made this night so amazing. I am obsessed with your faces. Except mine. Why did I not get the "smile-like-a-human" memo?? 
(Dear MJ, Are you happy you have now been featured?!)


Hope you enjoyed the peak! We had so much fun. I plan on doing this every single year from here on out. Such a great excuse for a dinner party.

  4. Love the idea of wrapping the vase in ribbon to cover the stems and temporarily add some color to the table.

  5. Your party was gorgeous- love every detail and I'm obsessed with those plates- I went on a little Anthro spree this weekend and picked up one of almost every plate they have- so I have one of those black beauties. I adore how you planned a sweet pink girl party and then made it so special for all of your friends. And yes, your painting is beyond fabulous. Happy Valentine's Alex! xoxo
