Citrus + Bloom

A Valentine's Day Gathering


To celebrate the upcoming Holiday, we decided to have our girlfriends over for a little Valentine's Day get together.  This time around, we decided to center it around something that's pretty and sugary sweet.  Read on below to see our idea for a fun and easy gathering to show your best gals how much you love 'em. 


First, we started with started with the perfect confection. Lael Cakes is a very reliable source for just that. These pretty little cakes (not to mention are also vegan and gluten free) are going to make for a wonderful take home treat for our best buds. Since flowers go hand in hand with Valentine’s Day, we decided to use the real thing  to doll up the cakes. Just a few small buds and maybe a sprig of green or two as a garnish and you’ve  got a beautiful and easy presentation.


Along with the perfect treat, you can’t say Valentine’s Day without having flowers in the mix! We fell head over heels for a citrus and pink color palette for our blooms inspired by floral artist Nicolette Camille. The combination of the pale and soft pink tones with subtle pops of oranges and yellows created the ideal swoony setting.


The velvet trim added a playful element to the table, as well as adorning our take-away boxes for the cakes. We are really crushing on these guys right now!


Once each cake is finished, simply place it inside its box and wrap up with a single velvet ribbon once around horizontally. Finish it off with a bow, thread  a stem straight through for a little added festive touch and send your friends off with something just as lovely and sweet as they are.
