Monochromatic Monday :: Sealed with a kiss

February 13th, 2012

Red_White_Valentines_Inspiration_Board

Did you all have a fun weekend? I had a busy Saturday with that Design*Sponge shoot I mentioned, plus a video reshoot for an upcoming HGTV feature…but Sunday was blissfully low-key! A & I cut our errands short when some light snow showers started to fall and headed straight home to watch movies in front of the blazing fire. Today’s our last inspiration board before V-day, and I couldn’t let the season pass without an homage to kisses, hearts and strawberries in shades of crimson and white. Whether you’re romancing a significant other or showering yourself with TLC, I can’t think of a more fitting way to ring in February 14th than donning a vintage floral dress, penning love notes to faraway friends and digging into a too-big slice of that divine strawberry cheesecake. I’ll be surprising my honey by picking him up early for work for a special afternoon that I can’t wait for (will divulge details later, just in case A happens to be reading!) What do all of you have up your pretty little sleeves? Anything in particular you’re planning to give…or hoping to receive?  

*images: {row 1} girl with pinwheel, jam-filled cookies, rose & fern place setting {row 2} red dahlia centerpiece, strawberry cheesecake {row 3} betsy dunlap envelope seal, burger & fries, heart place setting, floral top & red skirt {row 4} vintage stamps, heart matches, red & white striped cake, sealed with a kiss.

    I’m baking for Vday- a chocolate beet cake with beet frosting and a batch of sugar sandwich cookies filled with a chocolate ganache!
