Valentine’s Day Inspiration | The Pinkest Party Ever

The Pinkest Party Ever

With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, you don’t want to miss this yummy Valentine’s Day Inspiration! I’ve always had a sweet tooth (maybe that’s why Meredith and I are such good friends?!) but lately, it’s on a whole other level. I blame the baby! ; )

Valentine’s Day Inspiration | Styled by Cake & Confetti

If you are ever running low on all things COLOR, our sweet friend Meredith from Cake & Confetti is your girl! Especially when it comes to pink, this girl’s got it down. This Valentine’s Day shoot she put together was no exception! As if being 9 months pregnant isn’t hard enough, thinking about all these delish desserts has me craving sweets like never before. ; )

These donuts by River Oaks Donuts tasted even better than they looked! Especially alongside the gorgeous Okie Doughkie candy hearts inspired sugar cookies! What more could you want?

Cake and Confetti | A Creative Boss

I don’t know if I’ve met anyone as creative as Meredith! She truly is a rock star creative, stylist, blogger! She does it all. I think this cup that says “I like my creative juices sparkling” couldn’t be better suited for her work/life mantra!
