5 Things

Friday is finally here, 5pm can't come soon enough. 5 things on my mind:
{Vase of peonies}

Out of the abundance of flowers out there, peonies are my favorite. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.  




{Collection of homemade cards}

Normally we buy pre-made Valentine's day cards for Charlotte's classmates but this year we are embarking upon a more creative route - homemade cards.




{Heart candies}

Valentine's Day is not the same without these fun heart shaped candies. Even if they are too sweet to eat you can still create homemade centerpieces out of them. This whimsical table decor will be the showpiece of the party, whether you are hosting an intimate dinner for two or a bash for all of your friends.
{Tray of macaroons}

If you wish to break free of traditional gift ideas for the upcoming Valentine's Day, there is no finer box of sweets to send than a box of macaroons. You can even learn to make your own with classes from online pastry schools.

Have a great weekend everyone!
