"All You Need is Love" Casual Valentine's Day Brunch - plus freebies!!

If you like this collection, you can get it here (under the "SHOP" tab) or directly at my Etsy store here. And don't forget to grab your freebies at the end of this post!

This was a small get together to celebrate love on Valentine's Day last year. We had just moved into a new place while our belongings remained in a storage on the other side of the country. I decided to host a simple and casual brunch to bring our family together and to lift our moods. I quickly made the party printables, got yummy cupcakes, brewed some freshly ground coffee, cracked a few eggs for French omelets and toasted slices of homemade bread. We all had a great time and felt ready for a new start together! 
The sweets table set up. The big frame holding the "LOVE" letters and the pennant banner is from an inexpensive old picture I found at Goodwill.

Tin mailboxes found at Target.

 Be my Valentine? 
I love the simplicity and yet, boldness of this display. The cutout hearts at the end of the skewer make it look like an arrow cutting through the deep red apple.
Wine glass "lamp shades". Use with a clean burning soy or palm wax tea light candle, or better yet, insert a battery-operated flameless tea light inside the glass.
 Another use for the cutout hearts
A closer look at the water bottle label: "Love Facts"
You can find this printables collection at my shop here ("SHOP" tab) or here's a direct link to my Etsy store here.  And, as promised, here's my free gift to you. Free invitations and a cute "love chart" for free download. Just follow the links below or click directly on the images. Please leave a comment with questions, suggestions or share pictures of your own celebration using the free printables. Thanks!

And here's the link for your free "Love Chart" (or just sick on the image above). 

I hope you have fun with these freebies and enjoy a wonderful Valentine's Day.  Love is all around, we just need to open our eyes and see the beauty that abounds :-)
