Valentine's Day Style Shoot

Hey everyone!


I am super excited to present to you my very first style shoot. For the theme I just had to pick Valentine’s Day. Why? Ha-ha… easy, because I needed to test my creativity after seeing all of those DIY projects on Pinterest. Also, because I truly believe the best gifts in life come from the heart!


I managed to make it simple enough for you to try at home for that special someone or a very close group of BFFs! 


I have to admit that I was never a fan of Valentine’s Day, but when I learned all about color combinations and how they that can be used in weddings, my mind definitely changed. As expected, for this photo shoot I went the non-traditional way and stayed away from decorations in red. Instead, I based my palette on my favorite tones from the 2014 Spring Fashion Color Report by Pantone, so I could also show you how I managed to get these hues all glammed up.


Enjoy! ♡


Chocolate Filled Raspberries were my first choice of order, and it was a good pick because they turned out absolutely delicious!

I also set apart some fresh raspberries for the sparkling wine.

Who doesn't love popcorn?

Even though one of Spring's hottest colors is Sand, a very elegant shade of beige, I replaced it with gold glitter to make it a lot more glamorous!

Funny story about the non-floating raspberry in the wine glass, it turned out to be one of the chocolate filled ones! 

Delicious Gourmet Apricot Nutmeg Cookies made by yours truly!

Gourmet Apricot Nutmeg Cookies by Diamond Excellence Weddings & Other Finer Events

Ok…I’m going to brag a little and confess that a couple of my friends have actually told me that my cookies are very addicting.

This makes me really happy! 

One of my dearest friends, Mónica López, gave me the cutest cupcake set for Valentine's Day, so I just had to make them!

Thank you so much Moni, they are absolutely adorable!!!! 

It's all about the love, the details and the Radiant Orchid tablescape!

The "Love" Bookmarks are such a perfect and inexpensive little gift! 

I used some Colorful Tissue Paper Pom Poms as part of the decorations!

Ta da! desserts table's final look!
