As you may have already seen a few weeks ago on the blog or in the Southern Weddings newsletter, we celebrated Valentine’s Day in style–albeit a little early! Armed with the new postcard set from the Southern Weddings Shop, the cutest pink and red decor we could find, and a few gussied-up Southern favorites (biscuits and red velvet cake…yum!), we spent an afternoon writing valentines to our best friends, siblings, bridesmaids, and even our mailman!
Julia Child once said, “A party without cake is really just a meeting!” We used a heart stencil and red sanding sugar to make our basic red velvet cake a little more festive. We also enjoyed Emily’s signature drink, raspberry lemonade, and our favorite office snack—biscuits. A heart-shaped cookie cutter made them especially fitting for our party!
Into the mail, they go! Naturally, this was a group activity. :)
We’re so grateful to our friend, Faith Teasley, for capturing this fun afternoon! Although they won’t arrive by this Friday, you can still get our cute postcard set here–no harm in stocking up for next year!
Did you send valentines this year? We’d love to hear about them!
