A stunning Valentine’s family luncheon named “Eat, Pray, Love” a gorgeous theme of neutrals with beautiful florals, styled by the combined talents of Thetis of Little Sooti Blog & Li Ann of Ham&Pea Design&Paperie. From the themed printables to the perfect styling, there is a lot of love in all the special details.
The inspiration behind Eat, Pray LOVE is all about family conversations over food! This sparked the ideas behind this beautiful theme.
Styling Details as Described by Thetis:
“Thetis from Little Sooti and Li-Ann from ham&pea put together this Valentine’s Day Family Luncheon table to demonstrate how effective a simple table can be quickly put together (by just pulling together bits and pieces from home)
Not everyone has a special partner to celebrate this day with but everyone has someone to call ‘family’ so this table was a celebration of all the special people that make ‘family’ for us.
We wanted to stay away from the usual pink and reds and definitely wanted to stay away from ‘hearts’ so the stationery was all about ‘noughts and crosses’ and we even designed a simple noughts and crosses game to accompany the place setting for a little bit of fun along with the meal.
A neutral and earthy colour palette of yellow and brown complimented by a variety of green flowers in season set the clean and rustic tone for the day.
A selection of cheese is so easy to put together and we even used the cheeseboard to place the desserts (cake pops and macarons) on for something a little different. We scattered a bunch of ‘baby’s breath’ flowers across the dessert table to add some texture and warmth and what we love about this is it’s so easy to put together and quite effective too!”
