IMG_1440 With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought it would be the perfect time to share a delicious and wonderfully simple dessert for two. Made with Tip Top Ice Creams classic French Vanilla this lovely Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Cheesecake really would be the perfect end to any romantic meal you have planned for this weekend – or of course after any meal, it’s so deliciously simple I have no doubt you’ll make it again and again. I hope everyone has something lovely planned with their beloved this Valentines Day. x

There are days when everything becomes so incredibly overwhelming and you have so much to do that no matter how many lists you make you can’t seem to get on top of things – today is one of those day! But one of my absolute favourite, and there are many, parts of working in such a beautiful industry is that you see a post and it instantly brightens your day that forces you take a little time out to admire it. This stunning pink, white and black party via 100 Layer Cake is one of those parties that makes you want to call your closets friend, slip into a gorgeous party dress and enjoy a couple of glasses of wine and delicious sweet treats – it’s so pretty that you simply must take a peek at the rest of the celebration here. x

3 4 2 Oh my goodness, I honestly don’t have the words to say how thankful I am for the overwhelming response from the 4000 likes post yesterday – you really are the most amazing people in the whole world and you deserve so much more than the gifts that I can offer for you! Thank you all so very much!!

Aww, so with Valentines Day tomorrow is anyone else running around for a last minute and oh so cute gift idea for your loved one? Well if you haven’t already spotted them these gorgeous and incredibly perfect ‘you still make me blush’ DIY cards from Eat Drink Chic would be perfect (how cute is the image in the middle of the girls cheeks blushing!!) especially is pared with some yummy red velvet kisses! I have to admit after almost 8 years together, I still get butterflies and blush a little when I see my hubby, even if it’s just a text, I love it! I hope that tomorrow is full of love, and you’re able to tell the person that still makes you blush how much you love them! xo

Red Velvet Kisses | Made From Scratch Oh with Valentines Day only a few days away, could there be anything more wonderful than giving (or receiving) a delicious batch of homemade Red Velvet Kisses! Ben and I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day, but it’s still a lovely excuse to show your loved one how much they mean to you – plus who could resist a little baking! These oh so lovely kisses would look stunning wrapped up in a mason jar or box tied up with twine or even simply stacked in cute little ice cream bowl! Oh and be sure to keep an eye out on the blog and Facebook tomorrow, I have a the most exciting announcement ever!! x

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day yesterday, I baked some heart shaped brownies and had a lovely lazy night in with Ben. For those of you who have followed Made From Scratch for a while, you’ll know that I love having people over for dinner. I also love the idea of always setting the dinner table properly before you eat, it has a magic ability to transform a simple meal into a special meal almost instantly. How beautiful is the table setting laid out by the lovely Nina from Stylizimo for a lunch guest she had recently, you would feel so special sitting down to something like this. x

Happy Valentines Day! I hope everyone is having a lovely day and maybe has something special planned for today with their favourite person. Also how simply stunning is this Valentines themed party by Couture Events, you would feel so so special to be apart of a party like this. What ever your plans are today, I hope it is truly wonderful and full of love. x

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, we had a slow weekend of pottering around which is nice. I did come across this incredible modern rustic wedding, I love everything about it.
