Valentine’s Day Toppers

I love Valentine’s Day. If you read some of my previous posts you know that February 14th is a special day not just because its Valentine’s Day, but because its my husband’s birthday and is when we found out we were pregnant with our son!  Since this day has so much meaning for us for the last couple of years I tend to spend a lot of time on the details surrounding this day.

When I had a client ask me to help her with her Valentine’s Day plans I knew exactly how we could help and loved creating the below toppers for her special day with her significant other.  The conversation hearts have six different words displayed: Be Mine, Together, Love, Sweet, True Love, Forever. 

We love custom work and being apart of our clients special moments.


With the holidays coming to an end we are hearing the wonderful news of couples tying-the-knot! Do you know of a couple who is getting married in 2013, 2014, 2015? This year will be a big wedding year for my friends and clients who will be making the commitment of dedicating their love to their significant other. What a wonderful and amazing time for friends and families to come together to  celebrate this one in a life time moment.

As so many of you know, I love to throw a good party and often times don’t need a reason, but an engagement is the perfect reason to bring people together.  An Engagement Party gives you the opportunity to officially announce your engagement to your friends and family by inviting them to personally congratulate you and your bride/groom.  You may be bouncing off the wall with excitement that you are getting married, but I’m pretty sure your sister, mother, and your best friends are right there with you, so let them celebrate with you!!!

The Knot is an excellent resource for brides thinking of having an Engagement Party. I like this source because it speaks to the range an Engagement Party can take; from informal to formal.  I will add in my opinion that guest who are invited to an engagement party hosted by the bride and groom should also be invited to the wedding; however if the party is hosted by others than there is no commitment to send an invite for the wedding day.

Below is our favorite engagement invite created by yours truly at A Delicate Gift. 

Valentine’s Day Love

Valentine’s Day is such a special day for me. It’s not only a day dedicated to our loved one’s but it’s also my Husband’s Birthday and the day I found out I was pregnant with my son! Although we should tell our loved ones that we think they are special to us every single day  I look forward to spending the day with my guys and telling them how much I love them.  We will likely celebrate with good food, cupcakes, and some silly crafts.

I do send valentine’s day cards out to family and friends as I like to make sure I connect with people through out the year. Check out my new Valentine’s Day Card Design in my shop. This design can be customized to also serve as a birth announcement or invitation.

Happy Halloween

A Delicate Gift would like to wish you a Happy and Safe Halloween! 
This year my husband and I get to take my son Trick or Treating for the first time. Last year he was just too small and even this year he will likely not understand the fun of going door to door showing off his cute little cow costume and asking for candy, but this year is all about memories for this mom and dad! 
Here are a few pictures of my handsome boy at his friends Halloween Party!  

Mommy Play Date Cards

Now in my shop are these adorable Mommy Play Date cards. Perfect size to tuck into your purse or diaper bag.

Supporting March of Dimes

Today we are proud to hand March of Dimes (working together for stronger, healthier babies) Gift Certificates towards A Delicate Gift services or shop items to auction off at their Tasting for Tots and the Signature Chef’s Auction.  

This organization has a special place in my heart as premature and preterm labor hits very close to home with my son being born early. We were fortunate that he was born healthy, but it was comforting to know of the resources available by the March of Dimes organziation.
