{#2} Part II: SUNSET DESSERT | Homemade Americana V-Day Inspiration + Free Printables by Couture Events

So, it’s time for our second Valentine’s Day feature, you guys.  And you’re in for a treat.  Well, more like several treats.  Actually, more like several free treats, you can keep!  Remember back on Wednesday when we brought you “French Elegance” Valentine’s Day inspiration by Couture Events?  Remember those gorgeous images, chock full of the most elegant and pinktastic inspiration you could possibly imagine, complete with free printables to make your romantic homemade evening really shine?  Well…

Couture Events and the rest of the team are back with something equally as special, and we’re so excited we get to slam it in your faces, freebie-style AGAIN!  Woot woot!

Now, here’s the scoop on this shoot from Krystel of Couture Events!

How about an All American Brunch with your sweetheart!  This table is overflowing with delicious berries complete with homemade strawberry, blueberry, and cherry jam.  Everything about this tabletop was handmade, even the little pom-pom balls made out of cupcake holders flattened in half and glued one to the next.  The patterned “Happy Heart Day” pennants, cupcake wraps, and jam labels are the little details that make this table shine.  Delicious desserts that can be made at home: heart shaped brownies, crimson and sapphire cupcakes, and fruit cups.  This fun All American valentines tabletop is the perfect way to spend a day outside with your honey!

Here’s just a small sampling of the free printables Nic. Roc. Designs created for you!
