Beautiful Spring Wedding and Party Planning Ideas

Today I have a special treat for you with a guest post from Sarah Sofia Knepp, who is a wedding and event planner...

living with her beautiful young family in Charlotte, N.C. We first became friends on Instagram and she is just as sweet as she is talented. I am always looking for new ideas for entertaining and with an engaged daughter I've been pinning away from Sarah's Pinterest feed and others for what will likely become my "job". 

I am excited to be a guest today on Shabbyfufu sharing Valentine’s Day Party inspiration from romantic to glam!

Whether you’re celebrating your wedding day or Valentine’s Day dinner party with your favorite couple friends, this Boho Chic Farm Wedding is a perfect way to add a little romance with lush florals, vintage chinaware, and personalized place settings.

Everybody loves s’mores, so why not host an evening of s’mores and giant board games.


All you need is Love. Instead of going out to dinner, host a Valentine’s Day Party at home with your favorite couple friends or a Galentine Party with your girlfriends!

I found these festive invitations on Tiny Prints that coordinate with the glam look using pink, gold, rose gold and silver. Mixing and matching metallics continue to be on trend for 2017 when it comes to party d├ęcor.

A fun and easy way to add color and spice up any party is a backdrop! Shop your own home for pretty wrapping paper and secure onto one of your walls. The backdrop also serves as a pop up photo booth with the rose gold love balloon from Oriental Trading! Have your guests use festive props like the V-day, happy, and arrow wooden signs.


Sip Sip Yay! Everyone loves a specialty drink, especially when it’s served in these fun disco drink cups from Johnston Style. An easy DIY to add some glam and sparkle is to make a glitter champagne bottle.

A secret to any successful party or event is to make it enjoyable for everyone, including yourself! You don’t have to do everything from scratch, including dessert. This heart shaped chocolate mousse cake from Trader Joe’s is beautiful and is the perfect size for everyone to have something sweet. Simply add a fun Valentine’s Day sign like I did or a few flowers and no one will be the wiser.


Mix and match your chinaware! Go shopping in your home and if you don't have it an easy solution that won't break the bank are festive paper napkins and plates like these heart ones from Oriental Trading!
