I recall a time in which I enjoyed Valentine’s Day so much, I rested late afternoons on cardboard filled with tacky white glue and gold glitter plastered all over my face, hair, hands and arms too! yes I was a 10-year-old girl making heart shape cards with an arrow crossing its crooked cut shape as I did not have a die cut back then. I love the concept that Valentine’s Day stands for, it brings an air of friendship love awareness that is often taken for granted. Unlike couples who have an anniversary or any other unique date in which they can celebrate their love and romance; friends don’t necessarily have an anniversary of sort, other than the year or time frame in which the friendship developed, this would be a more fitting day to celebrate those relationships.
I wanted to do something simple, romantic and useful to display for this post. This is a notes writing setting, of course with desserts made by my dear friend Yanneris Genao, to sweeten the thoughts and write something beautiful for that special someone, so grab your BFF’s and hop on a comfy chair and enjoy the sweet sheer ribbon canopy setting. I found a pretty handy site wishafriend in which you can get inspirations for writing your Valentines notes, below is one I find to be uniquely thorough, hovering over anything and everything between a laughter and a tear.
When you want to talk, I will hold your hand and listen to you.
When you want to cry, I will lend you my shoulder.
When you want to run away, I will run with you.
Coz’ no other world can be half the fun, as my world is with you in it.
Happy Valentines day!
The key to my heart!

Glittery love,,,love me some glitter!
Embellish as much as you want, this is the time to be extra sweet and loving
I was asked if I’m awaiting until I turn 40 to post the photos below, lol
Most of the time I’m so consumed by setting up the venue that I rely on my fantastic friends and family to take pictures! I finally got them all “I think” so here it is.
I wanted to capture the times allure, fashion and all the flapper character I could get for this Speakeasy of mine. This is my 33rd birthday and I wanted to celebrate it with an era that was “doable” for my guests and that I absolutely love. I adore how the classy charm within the fashion mingled with excitement, and spilled over every where there was booze 🙂
Thank you to my ladies (my BFF,lol), Sarah, Anny, Jennifer for coming over to help set up, you girls are awesome! Thanks to my cake boss Yanneris Genao for a tastefully done charming cake, loved it! and the edible red velvet dessert jars were amazing!
This post is a bit different from my usual ones where I only show decor and ambiance setting overall; in this theme the guests were part of the mood of the theme and most definitely the decorations. I must add that I was blown away with the effort and excitement that went on during the days leading to this event which only picked every time a guest made their entrance with all their roar on!
I have added photos of some of the event decor here and the rest of the images as there are too many to post in its entirely I have inserted a picture gallery you can click and play to see it all!
Well without further yapping I invite you to my 30ISH! birthday celebration!
