If you saw our holiday entertaining ideas by event planner extraordinaire Marla Brown, then you know what's in store for our new feature: Party of the Month. Marla's creativity and years of experience make her parties beautiful, but it's her attention to details and custom touches that make them inspiring. We'll be featuring a special party every month on Style Sheet with DIY ideas, decor tips and gorgeous photography by Christine Kufske. To kick things off, we've got a fabulous family Valentine's Day party filled with personal details that will make everyone feel special. And isn't that what we all want on February 14th?

'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' applies to the traditional red-and-white-theme. A plain white runner plus satin and organza ribbons add a sweet detail to the table.
Dig into soup with heart! Marla used tomato soup and very cold sour cream to decorate the meal.
Personalized chocolate lollipops would make anyone happy, no matter what age.
There's so much more to come!
