Love is in the food..

Valentine treats

If you are planning a party with a large group or just a couple of children, it is a lovely idea to create your very own 'sweetie table' filled with delicious treats for your guests to enjoy. Whether you decide to do some home baking or buy in some goodies, the following suggestions may help you to decide on which treats to choose for your valentines table.

Choose a bottle and fill up with some colour coordinated m&m's, and then make personalised labels for each of your party guests to take home for a loving gesture.


Why not splurge and treat yourself to some incredibly delicious LADURÉE macaroons for the day?

Why not display some beautiful cake pops for something different?

These cake pop wands from Cake Pop Princess are beautiful!

If you are also planning to serve a dinner plate at your party, then the following suggestions are for you.  Beetroot-based dishes could be a great option. Not only is this typically British veg incredibly tasty, but it will make any dish a vibrant pink colour, coordinating with the valentine theme.

To ensure your table is as pretty as it can be, it may be a good idea to invest in some beautiful serve-ware. 'Not on the high street' have a lovely collection, I particularly like this glass dome stand for displaying your cupcakes...






I hope these suggestions have been of some help to you, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

Until next time..
