A Lovely DIY Party on a Budget.

I've never really been a fan of traditional Valentines Day items . Roses and all that mushy stuff? No Thanks! But I am a fan of throwing parties with beautiful decorations! Oh and love too...I'm a fan of love.  

I recently spent some time browsing through the Tiny Prints website and found that they had really cute Valentines cards and Invitations.

I fell in love with this not so traditional Valentines Postcard and I knew I had to base my party on it.
It served as the perfect invitation!

I really wanted to keep this little gathering budget friendly. I used only things I have in my home and it turned out so beautiful. I recycled the mason jars from my wedding to display flowers and hold take home favors and used scrapbook paper for the special little details.

I covered the table with some Kraft paper. It serves as a fun alternative to a table cloth and it really brings the whole DIY theme together. Instead of the traditional table runner I opted for a stitched paper garland based on the design of the Tiny Prints invitation.

These Rag tie cupcake picks are a simple and cute addition to any baked treat. These can be found in my shop, Jenna Leslye Designs.

Are you kidding me with these wood patterned straws!? 

For a cute take home treat I used recycled mason jars filled with fresh baked cookies. I replaced the top with a simple cupcake wrapper and added a matching label to the front. Tiny Prints also sells super cute stick on labels for all occasions.


I had so much fun creating for this fun, "non-traditional" Valentines party!
