A Pretty in Pink Inspired 80’s Valentine’s Day Party!

By February 4, 2021 No Comments

Raise your hand if you were raised on all the best 80’s movies!! Well if you were, then you have definitely seen Pretty in Pink! It’s only one of the best 80’s movies ever!! With so many iconic actors and actresses and just moments, it deserved a shoot dedicated to it!

So get your best girls and fellas because we have the ultimate Valentine’s Day party inspiration for you! And you better believe it has a lot of PINK!!!

Check us out on Green Wedding Shoes where we are featured today with all of these pretty photos by Jessica Lynn Photo.

Let’s start with the details… My friend Leanna of David & Leanna always delivers the best of the best! When I showed her my mood board and told her about my vision she jumped on board right away! We went a little bit modern with a touch of girly but made sure to keep all the best sayings… Love’s a Bitch was a must!

I adore the way Jessica Lynn Photo styled this and the way she added the florals by Cobra Lily and ribbon by Party Crush Studio. Flat lay dreams made!!

Onto our pretty little table!! Of course, that balloon backdrop deserves a big round of applause! The Pop Shop does it again with her amazing installations!! It looks perfect behind our low table set up from Sweet Salvage Rentals. Doing a low table for adults is always fun, and her pillow and textile collection is truly the best!

Can I gush a bit?! Well, Cobra Lily’s flowers are f-ing amazing, ok? I’m obsessed with his beautiful work and he just nailed that mixture of ’80s and modern that I wanted!! Seriously in love!!! What do you think?!

Our gorgeous tabletop was from Signature Party Rentals. The monochromatic baby pink plates, modern gold flatware, and that beautiful rose glassware were absolute perfection!! Plus, David & Leanna’s modern place cards with all our favorite character’s names completes it! Any Duckie fans out there?!

There’s those amazing cocktail stirrers from David & Leanna!

It’s all just so pretty together!!! I just picture Andie’s pink dress sitting smack in the middle at this table!

I can’t forget about the pretty linens!! That gorgeous runner is from Party Crush Studio and the pale pink napkins from Hostess Haven looked so pretty on our table.

Let’s just keep gushing over these Cobra Lily florals and those The Pop Shop balloons mmmmkay?!

Moving on from the table to the hottest spot, the bar!! And this bar is probably my favorite part of this shoot! The floral arrangements are INSANE!! And yes, I’m absolutely still gushing over Cobra Lily! Our bar from Sweet Salvage Rentals even has a tint of pink to it, can you tell? All the pink vibes!!!

Wowzer!!! That set up is looking GOOD! I love the mixture of signage colors and the shape David and Leanna chose.

Bottles & Blooms set up our pretty bar, they are the geniuses behind all the drinks you see at our shoots! And let me tell you, being a taste tester at our shoots has become a very serious job for me, hehe… Lucky us, the girls are sharing their recipes!! Keep scrolling…
