An Intimate Valentine's Dinner Shoot for Two in Fuchsia and Black

Happy Monday!!!! And, Happy Valentine's Week!!!! I have some amazing inspiration for you to celebrate the week of love and a GREAT BIG giveaway tomorrow - so let's get started. Today I'm continuing the Wedding Vendor Challenges with a photo shoot for an intimate dinner for 2 from Shafonne of Making Your Event Special and Pretty Pear Bride. This shoot is just perfect as not only is it affordable to re-create, but it's so sweet and fun. There was a black damask wrapped gift with a contrasting pink ribbon at each place setting, one for him and one for her {don't you love the texture on the wrapping paper?}. The centerpiece was a black chalkboard with hot pink hearts that had "I love U" written on it - so cute.

For the dessert table, the black damask wrapping paper was added to the top of the linen and martini glasses with desserts were added to the table. The hot pink words that spelled out "KISS" were a great accent to bring in the hot pink to the black paper. One of my favorite features is the presentation of the cupakes that were displayed in tea cups and adorned with hot pink rhinestones. Pink confetti words spelling, 'Kiss, Love and XOXO were scattered on the table too.
