Well, I should have done this ages, but I have a new blog – Ready, Set, Party! It’s not actually very new any more, but I’m super proud of it. I also started an Etsy shop by the same name – Ready, Set, Party at Etsy. I would love it if you’d click on over and check the new blog and shop out! Thanks!
Hard to believe Valentine’s Day is nearly here! I made these cute Valentine’s cards to send out, but I think they would make adorable invitations for a V-Day party, too! Here’s the super quick and easy tutorial.
Materials: Blank note card and envelope, scraps of cute fabric, fusible interfacing, sharp scissors, an iron, sewing machine.
Follow the fusible interfacing directions and fuse to the back of the fabric. This will keep the cut edges of the fabric from fraying and make the fabric stiffer and easier to work with.
Cut 1″ hearts from the interfacing-backed fabric. You will need 3 hearts per card. Line the hearts along the short side of the note card and using the sewing machine carefully sew a straight line down through the middle of each heart to attach the hearts to the paper.
Hand write your Valentine’s greeting (or invitation), tuck into an envelope and mail to a lucky recipient!
This bittersweet Valentine’s party cracks me up. I love the pretty pinks offset by the ‘bitter’ signs. Hilarious and just right for a group of special single ladies to celebrate the holiday! PS – how fab is the ‘bittersweet’ banner??
I just adore this pretty table found over at Beetlegrass (actually I like ALL her tables, but this one is holiday appropriate). I especially like that it’s not over the top Valentine’s, but very subtle. The colors are sweet and unexpected and I love the mix of the different patterns.1. Vintage Playing Cards 2. Blue & White Tablecloth 3. Tea Cups 4. Gold Doilies 5. Vintage Linens
If you are lucky enough to have a vintage linen collection, this table is the PERFECT example for how to showcase them. Go break them out right now! Add in some sweet printable heart vintage cards, gold doilies, and pretty china, and set a lovely Valentine’s dinner table.
I’m not a mushy girl by nature, but this year, I seem to have the Valentine’s Day bug big time. So this week I’ll be featuring some great Valentine’s Day party ideas and a super easy original DIY project Friday for any last minute procrastinators out there!
Let’s kick things off with a trio of awesome V-Day garlands I found via Pinterest. These are all cute, but uncomplicated enough to easily duplicate and would bring a romantic touch to any Valentine’s celebration.
