out of NSW Australia shared this sweet Valentine’s Day Party with us and I can’t wait for you to see all of it’s adorable details!
Vintage Valentine’s Day Party
To me, vintage and Valentine’s Day go together like hamburgers and french fries, like peanut butter and jelly, like sunshine and sandy beaches! So, naturally, a Valentine’s party is perfectly paired when done with a vintage twist!
Here are a few of my favorite elements from this darling event:
- White ruffled iced cookies topped with red hearts
- Vintage door backdrop
- Vintage cupcake toppers
- Drink bottles adorned with red ribbon and roses
- Red heart cookies
- A red and white ribbon streamer garland
- Vintage heart dessert-cookie trays
- and MORE!

Vintage Valentine’s Day Party Details:
This is what Anna said about styling the party- “This intimate Valentine’s Day dessert station was created for a small gathering of people who wanted to celebrate with a quiet night among friends. With only a few days notice, I was able to pull together a few bits and pieces and bake some sweet sugar cookies and cupcakes, a delicious chocolate cake and create a small lolly buffet to satisfy the guests. I wanted the display to have a distinctly vintage feel to it, with muted reds and touches of black on an antique white colour palette.
I used an old recycled door as the backdrop, with a scrappy fabric garland strung across it to dress it up a bit. I found the cutest rustic looking red tin car in the garden section of the two dollar shop, which was quickly snapped up. I put packets of Love note lollies in the back of the car and dressed it up with rose embellishments. I put my vintage hearts fondant mould to good use making toppers for my sugar cookies, which had buttercream petals on them. Sweet vintage cupcake toppers were found on Etsy and I used chalkboard hearts and tiny scrapbooking letters to write “Love is Patient” and ‘Love is kind” on the cake topper. This sweet dessert display was very inexpensive and easy to create using items I had at home. A dessert station does not need to be expensive or elaborate to be beautiful. By using one or two key pieces, you can put together a small display that will ‘wow’ your guests and be the talking point of the celebration.”
