While most may view Valentine’s Day as the pinnacle of all things romantic throughout the year, it can also be a day to simply be whimsical, feminine, and celebrate all things pink! This vignette of pastel pieces put together by Mathew Mead embodies the essence of sweet romance without being too over the top. Visit your local thrift or antique shop to search for some one-of-a-kind vintage items that can add some extra charm to your next shower, party, or sweet little corner at home.
Below we have put together a collection of pink items that are sure to add a little sweetness to your next event!
FOR your pink Party:
1.) PINK OMBRE WRAPPING PAPER– so the outside of your gifts can be just as pretty & exciting as what’s inside!
2.) SWEET RUBBER STAMPS– great for tags, invitations and customizing favors.
3.) PINK CANDY STRIPED BAGS– perfect for your candy bar set up or take home treats.
4.) MACARON LIMOGES– these darling boxes are the perfect trinket for a shower. They are also darling to use as a placecard holder!
5.) RECIPE BOX– what a fantastic gift! Use this at a shower and have all of the guests bring a recipe to share for the bride-to-be or to share a tip on parenting for the expectant mother.
6.) SCALLOP CAKE STAND- this is the kind of piece you will use time and time again. It’s a staple for party throwing!

Is there anything sweeter than miniature treats? We loved this idea of making macarons into pops. With a variety of flavors available, you can mix them into almost any color scheme. Try a candy bar or miniature cookies, cupcakes or petit fours for sweets that are not only adorable but are sure to please as well.
It’s always a good idea to have a collection of cake pedestals and serving pieces on hand which can be used for all types of entertaining. Be sure to have varying heights and sizes so that you can create a beautifully styled table.
