What’s Love The Occasion’s top tips when planning a celebration?
- Keep it simple and plan ahead!
- Prepare party decorations a week or two before and plan food that can be prepped in advance.
- Do a practice run of your table (or draw a sketch so you have something to follow on the day).
- Set up as much as you can the day before.
- And most importantly, allow yourself plenty of time to get ready and have a moment to relax before your guests arrive!

Happy summer celebrating!
We never make a HUGE deal for Valentines day around here but this year I thought it would be nice just to invite a few close friends and their kids for a little morning tea.
This little table was meant to celebrate the love between mothers & their children so I popped on one of my Willow Tree mother & child ornaments, along with a sign I made to go along with this theme.
I mainly used things I already had around the house and from previous parties and kept things quite simple and stress free.
The only things I bought were a few cute valentines goodies from Occasion by Design and I ordered the ultra sweet cookies from Cakes By Sharon
A little sign I made up…definitely feel this way about my kids (even if one is going through the “terrible twos”!)
These cookies were delicious!
Cake cut into heart shapes and toppers from Occasion by Design. Funny how a cute topper can really dress up something so simple!
Fruit in sweet wrappers from Occasion by Design. I managed to get my daughter to actually eat more fruit today by telling her it was “cupcake fruit”!
My SIL gave me a heart shaped muffin pan last year. So I used it to make these delicious savoury muffins:
Hope you had a sweet Valentines Day as well!
