When pouring over all of the delicious details from the Valentine’s Day Soiree we posted earlier today, we had but one question “Where did Dina get all of that cute stuff?” Turns out, she has a secret shopping weapon known as of Waiting on Martha. We asked the two design mavens to give us the scoop on the sweetest details your Valentine’s Day party isn’t complete without.
Mandy Kellogg Rye, the shop curator behind Waiting on Martha tells us more on each item…..
1. Mini Heart Shaped Sparklers, $4. MOST FUN CANDLE EVER! When I saw these I knew I had to have them for the shop. They come in 2 different sizes the mini and the large which makes them perfect for full sized cakes or cupcakes. and even not lit they’re gorgeous gold…once you go wand sparkler you’ll never go back to boring candles again!
2. Domed Treat Stands, available in 2 different heights 10″ for $21 and 8.5″ for $18. These are perfect with or without the dome and can go with absolutely any event since they’re glass. Perfect for cupcakes, mini cakes or stacking macarons and candy. You could also put a large candle to create a gorgeous tablescape. I even use mine to put my baubles on display by stacking my bracelets.
3. Pink Cake Stand, $75 (if we’re talking about the large cake stand rather than the small petite treat stands). First off it’s pink. And like gorgeous, strawberry creme pink perfection. Aside form the gorge color the stand is taller than most and has such intricate detail…it walks the line of vintage and current perfectly. This will be a classic anyone would have in their family, passing it down from generation to generation.
4. Trinket Boxes, $10 each or $120 for the whole box. I completely fell in love with these the second I saw them. They’re beyond adorable, extremely unique, and very well priced. I have mine by my sink and put my wedding rings in it every night. It also makes a great gift for a girlfriend who just got engaged, married, the baker in your life, or anyone who simply loves the oh-so tasty macaron.
5. Chevron Bags (gasp!) $5.50 for 20. Treat bags are a Martha Must! The obvious use is to hold favors and treats for all of your party guest, but these large sized ones can be an envelope to a card and packaging for any small items. Chevron is still the hot pattern, but I foresee gingham taking it’s place soon. And it just so happens we have the gingham treat bags as well!
