I’m not a huge fan of the traditional chocolate and roses approach to Valentine’s Day (a pretty card is more than enough for me, please and thank you) – but a Valentine’s Day dinner party with friends? I can totally get behind that idea! Luckily for us, Lana from Lana’s Shop sent over some beautiful hand lettered and illustrated paper goods that she created to help inspire a Valentine’s Day soirée!
From Lana: Valentine’s Day is typically a holiday reserved for two. But who says that it has to be? Instead of celebrating just with your special someone, why not invite invite other couples and make it a party?
To set the whimsical and intimate tone of the celebration, I hand-lettered each invitation. The wording formed the shape of a heart and was painted directly onto luxe 130lb arches watercolor paper. I paired the invitations with a playful illustrated arrow envelope liner. Each envelope was then sealed with coordinating custom address labels.
Each guest was given a mini ‘I Love you card’ to share with someone special. Other paper items included hand lettered and illustrated menus, straw flags and a love quote chalk board sign. We loved this one of a kind, personal soirée!

Thank you for the gorgeous feature OSBP! Happy Almost Valentine’s Day everyone.
I love the little bits of whimsy in these with the slight waves in the menu script, the heart shaped writing, and those tiny little arrows inside the envelope!
