Valentine Sweets

I have been thinking about sweets for a Valentine's Day party. So today, I am sharing a few possibilities to see what you think.

How about serving: 

Raspberry Mousse in a white chocolate cup topped with two pieces of rolled white chocolate shavings finished with a chocolate heart and heart confetti.



Maybe Red Velvet Cupcakes garnished with red velvet cake bits, swirled with cream cheese icing and a dollop of chocolate icing and a white chocolate heart.


A chocolate cupcake with pink and red swirled icing topped with a chocolate heart and heart confetti.


Or even Cookie Monster cookies for little ones.


Now, how could we serve all of these goodies?

How about on something red, like a Bordallo Pinheiro Red Hearts Pedestal Cake Plate and red heart dessert plates? 



I love the red hearts on the cake stand, such detail!





How about a little decor for the table? 



A white lacy jar topped with Valentine ribbons.



Two love birds and red hearts could be perfect for the occasion!


Heart boxes for small gifts.


Lenox Eternal Gold flatware and red hearts sprinkled around the table.


Wow, I think this could work for a party! 

Now what you do think about the sweet eats and the decor?



Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Hi Judy, I think your Valentine's party will be a huge hit with all the delicious treats you are thinking about. The treats are such a visual art display they also work as your tablescape decor. Love all the red and white. You are a great inspiration for me to start thinking about Valentine's Day...........

Hugs,

Judy, you have been busy in the kitchen. Each one is beautiful, but my favorite is the red velvet cupcake. Don't you love those new cupcake cups that you can bake in? I like that they are the perfect little dish and one can use a fork to eat the cupcake.
Looks like you are ready for a Valentine Party. ~ Sarah

Shannon @ A Cozy Place Called Home said...

You did cut these goodies all up into bite size samples so we can try a little of each, didn't you? Otherwise, I will have a hard time deciding. Besides the goodies, I like the decorating too. Thanks for dropping by my blog today!
