valentine’s day at banquet


Good morning guys! This weekend our submission box was flooded with last minute Valentine’s Day submissions and it was so much fun to see how many variations on the idea of love. These cards and prints from Banquet in Vancouver are right up my alley because they’re sweet and simple. As much as I love details and decoration, sometimes it’s nice to let a great color shine. The limited edition raspberry colored heart print above ($50) is such a great color- and would look nice on the wall well past the holiday.


In addition to the new heart print, Banquet also has neon hearts, swans and badger cards ($5 each) that would be perfect for sending a little love note. Click here to check out (and shop) their full collection online. xo, grace

    My recommendation for a pretty last minute valentine’s gift: diy porcelain painting!
    I tried it last saturday at a local store /café in hamburg (germany), where i live and it was great fun! You should try it yourself sometime, it’s gonna be Easter soon :)
    Meanwhile you can watch my artwork here:

    I love Banquet, they do great work, with great quality. But $50 for a one color, one (basic) shape screen print? maybe I’m just a cheap-o haha.
