Katie says:

Use simple but unique touches at each place setting. I like the rustic vibe these mini clothespins give each menu when clipped to linen napkins. Allow guests to feel extra special by adding a sweet touch to each name tag. These Valentine’s Day-themed cupcake stickers are the perfect fit for a brunch that is based around a classic holiday color scheme of red, pink, purple and white.

Let yourself get creative by serving classic foods with a heart-shaped twist. These mini BLTs will be the hit of the party! Simply slice your bread using a heart-shaped cookie cutter before toasting each slice, then add bacon, tomato and lettuce.

Set up a Valentine’s Day coffee and dessert station for guests. Feature an eclectic mix of iconic items, such as candy hearts, novelty items and treats from a local bakery. Or, for those of you who don’t have room left after the meal, try adding a splash of cinnamon to your coffee for a touch of sweetness.

    Thanks! The heart-shaped sandwiches took us less than 15 minutes to make which was the best part of all! You all should give them a try. And Shannon, I picked up those mustache cookies at Butter + Love Bakery in Brooklyn – enjoy! Happy V-Day everyone.
