DIY Love Notes!

If you are anything like me, you have piles of paper from the craft store hanging around your house because “they were pretty”.  Here is a SUPER easy DIY to spruce up your invitations, cards, and LOVE NOTES!

 Using a regular 5×7 envelope as a guide, trace around the edges on the back of your pretty paper.  I use the bar code bottom section as the base of the liner. Then trim off that bottom strip (about a 1/2″) and it will be the correct size for the envelope!  You may need to trim the left and right sides down a bit if it’s too snug. For the RSVP sized envelope, I use a template (click to download mine!), and trace that on to the back of the pretty paper.  Cut it out, fold, and glue!  I use the rsvp card as an extra helper and fold around those edges for a perfect fit. Aren’t these envelopes so much more fun!?  Add a love note and rsvp – like this George Strait Lyrics inspired love suite in our printable FREEBIES!  And make your special someone smile 🙂

Happy Galentine’s Day!

Happy Galentine’s Day to all the lovely friendships out there that want to celebrate this lovely February Holiday together <3.  I love this idea, what a great excuse to host a party and have friend time!

This year, I have been obsessed with cookie decorating and all things flamingo.  Why not combine the two and have a flamingo cookie decorating party in your own kitchen!  “Let’s Flamingle!”

For this friendship date, I chose a simple napkin and wine glass combination for the settings dressed up with Champagne+strawberry Popsicles, greens clipped from the backyard, and fun flamingo cookie cutters!

Napkins, cookie cutters, and flamingo measuring spoons: World Market! Have fun creating!!

Valentine’s Day 2017 Inspiration!

Styled for Two ~ Valentine’s Day Inspiration!

For this year’s Valentine styled date, I took a little design exploration into the world of pinks and SUGAR.  I love the idea of having a tasting bar at parties like the super popular Donut Bar, Macaron tower, or Ice Cream bar.  I thought, why not combine them and make a mixer!  Grab a waffle cone and load up on a mix of a sugar cocktail <3

The design inspiration came from these plates I found at Pier One Imports in blush tones.  I first created the watercolor invitation suite and then went on a hunt for all the matching pieces.  Discovery:  Making your own envelopes is really easy!styledfortwo date night inspiration_0001Spray paint and backyard tropicals mixed with roses and fresh greens.Ombre collection of Macarons!styledfortwo date night inspiration_0004And an assortment of delicious Valentine Donuts, yummmmmmm.  I found these adorable copper and fur stools at HomeGoods.styledfortwo date night inspiration_0005styledfortwo date night inspiration_0007styledfortwo date night inspiration_0008Picked up these pink scrabble tiles on amazon, perfect for a casual “words with friends” game to end your tasty Valentine date! styledfortwo date night inspiration_0009
