When Maura of Monday’s Child approached me to collaborate on a kid’s photoshoot for Valentine’s Day, it was an immediate yes for me. In addition to being a devoted Monday’s Child shopper, I love nothing more than a themed party. I got my start in the events industry planning over-the-top kid’s parties, so it was a perfect excuse to dust off my child-sized pink Chiavari chairs.
For our Valentine’s setup, I enlisted the help of industry friend DC Rentals for help with linens and place settings. We used rich red linen to contrast with our pink Chiavari chairs. For the table design, we layered cute heart plates and cloth napkins and served strawberry milk from old-fashioned milk bottles. Our centerpieces were playful and funky with dried palm, tulips, and bunny tail grasses. The most exciting feature of our tablescape: A custom charcuterie board from The Soiree Stylist made 100% of candy and themed cookies. In fact, this is possibly my favorite entertaining hack of all time and is so easy to customize for any party. Long live the charcuterie trend!
Our tiny models could not have been cuter! They were perfectly styled by the talented team at Monday’s Child.
I was thrilled to lend my little one Emma – who ate her entire weight in candy and cookies. She sported the most adorable gingham-smocked dress.
Cheers to the tiniest members of Stylebook and the cutest photo shoot we’ve ever put on! Looking for something extra special this Valentine’s day? Purchase your love a Valentine’s Bouquet here, we have same-day delivery!
