party plan - v-day

More newness! Introducing party plans – little monthly plans for low-key entertaining. I’ve always been so enticed by the idea of throwing parties for myself and some close friends, but sadly, I don’t usually get the chance. So I’m bringing my unfulfilled party dreams here!

Wear // Valentine’s day is basically just an excuse to deck out in red and pink. This dress is cute, cheap and flirty, and works year-round – but looks especially V-Day appropriate with chic flats and simple gold earrings

Serve // Red velvet cupcakes are a total crowd-pleaser (they happen to be my favorite). They’re simple but decadent, fit perfectly with the holiday’s color scheme, and the single-serve portions make it an easy, un-fussy dessert to serve.

Send // I always love the idea of sending actual paper invitations, but it seems especially fitting for a Valentine’s Day party – there’s already the long-standing tradition of sending Valentines, which I’ve always thought is an extra-sweet notion. These punny options from Oh Happy Day are a creative and cute way to send your girlfriends the details (even if you’ve already texted/emailed/talked to them about it).

Watch // Would the holiday really be complete without romantic comedies? Maybe for some (namely those who have significant others), but not me. I’m a sucker for a good rom-com. These are two of my favorites (er, Notting Hill and anything with Meg Ryan in it) – but obviously, any would do (Pretty Woman also comes to mind).
