I’m fairly confident when I say that Valentines day is not everyones schtick. Deemed as a Hallmark holiday, it isn’t uncommon for it to have a bad rap. But here at Style Me Pretty, we simply love any excuse to celebrate. And when it’s a celebration of love? Well you probably know by now that you can count us in twice. Because we simply couldn’t let the day pass by without a nod to all things love-infested, we thought we’d take one more look at one of our favourite events to date - as was featured over the last two weekends on SMP HOME (which is launching as a new site soon!). Captured by our beloved White Loft Studio, this Valentine’s Day Craft Party is undoubtedly one for the books. Don’t miss the rest of the gallery – there is just so, so much more.
There’s absolutely no need to splurge on fancy dinners or extravagant gifts when all you need is a little creativity, (and a handful of copper glitter, of course!) Grab your best friend, your fiance, or your adorable, excitable, children and get to crafting. We’ve got some pretty great DIY’s rounded up for you right here:
And, because let’s be honest, it just isn’t a party without something to nibble on as you craft to your hearts content. We’ve gathered some of our favourites recipes which will surely keep those pesky cravings at bay:
Happy Valentines Day lovelies! xoxo, from all of us here at SMP
