I am so excited to partner with one of my favorite food bloggers, the Kitchen Prep this week for a series of Valentine's Day inspired posts from romantic tablescapes & date night outfits to delicious Valentine's Day treats! Single? Get your girlfriends together for some romantic comedies and vino!
La Petite Fashionista readers- meet my new blogger friend, Dianna! I discovered Dianna's blog during her Tailgate Thursday series- even though she's a Gator fan - she sure knows how to whip up some tasty recipes for football season! The way I feel about fashion and design is the way Dianna feels about food- she's passionate & continuously inspired. We both are Lilly lovin' Florida girls with a penchant for all things sweet and I am so glad we connected (isn't the blogging world wonderful?).
Be sure to stop by her blog and say hi & check out her valentine's day recipes!
As you probably noticed from my recent printable valentines post that I'm a teensy bit excited for February 14th. I created a colorful pink & red Valentine's Day dinner tablescape inspiration with the perfect amount of sparkle (and even a tissue paper garland!). I love the idea of taking existing things you own, doing affordable DIY's & hunting through thrift stores to create a unique look!
a gold "L" for love (or the two of your initials) makes a perfect centerpiece. I painted a paper mache letter with gold metallic paint for an affordable luxe look.
I found these gold rimmed plates at my favorite thrift store for 99 cents! They made the perfect romantic statement (& i loved it paired with these fun preppy target napkins & a DIY chevron heart (write your special guest's name in glue & sprinkle with gold glitter for some shimmer).
I couldn't believe my luck when I found this sweet gold cupid candle holder during my thrifting adventure-- I thought it added a little bit of character to the table. (I also scored these red tealight holders & taper candle for less than $1.00 each!).
I am in LOVE with how this DIY tissue paper tassel garland turned out! I used a simple tutorial and now I want to make another one for my bedroom!
I painted a wooden heart bowl with gold metallic paint to turn it into a sweet dish (and doubles as a jewelry catch-all after Valentine's Day). Guys, take note- any girl would love a unique, almost-too-pretty-to-eat box of chocolates over a box from Walgreens!
Check out Dianna's recipe for these Sweetheart Jelly Donut Muffins, which would make the perfect Valentine's Day breakfast for the love in your life (and okay, maybe we'll have a few ourselves too)!
Get the recipe on the Kitchen Prep!
Check back on Friday for some more Valentine's Day inspiration from the two of us!
