styled shoot: sew in love tea-for-two {plus free printable}


Happy Valentine’s Day lovely ladies! I hope you are all being treated by your husband’s to be today? Whether it’s a beautiful bunch of flowers,  a candlelit dinner or a romantic night away, today is a great day to forget the wedding planning and remember the romance!

A few weeks ago I had a little idea to create something sweet and romantic for you this Valentine’s, so I enlisted the help of the to put together a little Valentine’s tea-for-two with a ‘Sew in Love’ theme. I incorporated pretty ribbons, embroidery hoops, bobbins and buttons to make the most of the sewing twist.  Anneli captured the prettiness!

Liz decided to make the most of the pretty spring pastel flowers around at the moment with peonies, roses and tulips, and I added buttons to the vases & votives  for a pretty touch of colour.
