Five Valentine’s Day projects complete and one more to go!
This is what I’ve been working on since Sunday – nearly 100 heart cookie pops for a trade show that is being held today.
I rushed all the cookies outside to take a photo before I left and then packed up my car. I loved the heart light dangling over my monogram on my L.L. Bean tote so I took another photo. Can you tell I’m sleep deprived? Who takes a photo of the trunk of their car?
When I arrived at the show I set up the table top with glittered hot pink paper, and made a pot with bare tree branches and strung heart lights to wind through the branches. I then hung cookies from the branches with ribbon. I also made cookie arrangements in terracotta pots. I added glittery heart picks here and there. I wouldn’t be surprised if we won the best dressed table, but you never know.
One more baking project to do today. I’m making mini Valentine’s Day vanilla cupcakes and using up the Meyer lemon Italian meringue buttercream from my macarons this past Saturday and decorating them as I did for the Mini Boston Cream Cupcakes. They’re for my MIL who moved to a new place this past weekend and I thought she could take them to dinner with her and make new friends.
Then I’m taking a nap!
But I wanted to remind you the “Ooh la la Sur la Table Give-away” ends tonight at midnight, Pacific time. If you haven’t already entered, here’s your chance.
I’ll post the winner later this week after I catch my breath.
Wishing you all a wonderful day of love!
