The inspiration for this shoot came about from a mixture of some of our favorite details and an inspiration board that was recently put together by the always lovely Snippet and Ink. We love the weddings of Dusty + Ashley and Cassie + Paul who incorporated hearts and confetti into their big day and decided to mix those ideas together. Building upon the garland idea, we created a banner that can be a charming decor focal point. Add in a little yellow acacia and the colors can brighten up any room. -Emily
This Valentine’s Day project is easy to put together and can be created over a table, on the wall, outside, or even in the bedroom. Simply go to your local Sam Flax or Michael’s, vintage stores, and bakeries or pick from your stash of already loved Valentine cards. Pick your favorites among the paper goods, find some vintage Valentines, and pick up a sweet treat. Spray painting close-pins can add a whole new look to your banner and make it easy to hang all your incredible finds.
For the guys out there, adding that perfect ring (we love Sarah Perlis) tied with a simple string can be the perfect way to propose on this special day. Instead of “be my Valentine,” you can cut out “will you marry me?”
