We set up a sweets shop on the center island in the kitchen. Sawing the legs off a coffee table, we then painted it black and gold. It would make the perfect large riser for the center of the island.
The large marshmallow lollipops were from World Market- we loved the colors and added silk ribbons to the stems.
We purchased plain cakes from the grocery store bakery and embellished them with handmade sugar flowers. ETSY provided a great selection of handmade sugar flowers. We ordered from several vendors and all of them were beautiful.
A birdcage cloche was sprayed gold and used over the cake.
The beautifully decorated cookies were from another artist on ETSY.
ETSY has a great selection of beautiful cookies that you can order.
Individual silver vegetable containers from the 60's and 70's were used as individual "box lunches" for the guests.
We downloaded cupcake graphics from artists on ETSY and embellished store bought cupcakes.

We couldn't resist the whipped cream and fluffy marshmallow vodkas.
The rim of one flute was sugared with gold sugar- ready for a champagne cocktail.
Hostess cupcakes covered in coconut were the perfect place card holder.
Dolfin candy bars were embellished with rhinestone stickers and gold doilies and then
tucked into the fold of the napkin. We found the candy bars at World Market and the rhinestone stickers at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
Individual miniature cakes were placed at each place setting.
A piece of rhinestone embellished fabric was swooshed in the center of the table to add
a little sparkle.
A single pink rose petal was placed in the glass of rose wine.
I love Valentines Day.
It is such a dreary time of the year in Chicago and this holiday just helps to lift your spirits!
So gather a group of friends and throw your own soiree!
