Valentine’s Entertaining Inspiration

In case you missed it over the weekend, we made a big announcement over on Instagram: I’ve signed a book deal with Penguin Random House!! (Check it out the announcement here.) I can hardly believe we are working on my first book! Something I’ve wanted to check off my bucket list for years! It will be a lifestyle book full of my favorite recipes and go-to DIYs to inspire you as you entertain throughout the year.

To celebrate our announcement, I wanted to share a few photos from a Valentines-themed shoot we did last year. We created this lovely setup to serve as part of our book proposal. Looking back, I think completing the proposal was the hardest part of the process for me to complete. Narrowing down a focus and experimenting with what we wanted to do – it was challenging but oh-so-worth it. ( I can hardly believe a year has already gone by!!) 

While we’re well underway with recipe creation and DIY experiments, I hope these photos serve as a lovely little bit of inspiration for your Valentine’s Day plans, a spring luncheon, or even a birthday party and get you excited to see the book which is set to release in Spring 2020! We’ll be sharing a lot of being the scenes shooting of the book on my stories, so be sure to follow along. If you see a recipe or DIY that you are interested over on my stories that didn’t make it over to the blog, chances are we’re keeping it for the book! xo!!
