Remember This - The Grand Opening!

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day!
I thought today's post was perfect for this LOVEly holiday
as it has a Valentine's theme!
Over the weekend my mom opened the doors
to her new scrapbooking/paper supply shop in Gardner, KS
and I mentioned here that she hired me to do the grand opening!

Being that she was opening so close to Valentine's Day
and the shop was already decked out in v-day papers & ribbons
we stuck with that theme and went with
a pink & white color scheme with touches of red & aqua.
I hung paper lanterns & paper hearts that I had stitched on
over the window and made an envelope banner
out of cardstock & heart shaped doilies.
And glittered the clothespins of course.
Cupcakes are by Cake Chick.
These AMAZING Valentine's cookies are by a new girl {Icings by Ang}
that I tried out for the event and I was NOT disappointed!!
They were SO perfect for the event - and delicious too!
Oreo Cakersters rolled in sprinkles and piped with frosting hearts.
Easy! :)
Heart shaped cream cheese, sundried tomato & pesto layered dip.
I just pressed all the layers into a greased cookie cutter
and refrigerated overnight!
My new sister-in-law getting some coffee. :)
Gotta have blue mason jars, of course!
My mom sells these spools of bakers twine in her shop
as well as the adorable heart pins.
I made the little flags with inspirational words and stuck them in cardstock.
Love this little tiered dish!
These hershey kiss labels were found here - so perfect!This is raspberry pepper jelly over heart shaped cream cheese. :)
Pink lemonade with strawberries!
A little heart banner I stitched using scrapbook paper from the shop.
It's taped to the front of the register counter.
The giveaway table...
I stitched pink doilies together that I found
in the Michael's dollar section to make a table runner.
I might be stealing this. ;)
The giveaway sign I made and $3 walmart frame,
painted and distressed. :)

This was such a fun event to plan
and I'm SO glad I was not having a baby instead of setting it up! :)

Be sure to check out my maternity photos
by, who else?, my friend and favorite photographer Allyson!
She's so talented!!
