Vintage Valentine: The Inspiration

I LOVE to throw a party.  I go all out for my kid's birthday's and other special occasions.  I usually start thinking about my parties months ahead of time.  I look for inspiration and write down all my ideas and plans.  Inspiration for a party usually starts with just something little, like an image or object.  From that a take a theme, color, or feeling.  Hank and Hunt just posted her Party Palette and Design Seeds always inspires me.  So here's my inspiration.  
Next week I am throwing a little Valentine's party for my daughter and her friends.  It's going to be a cookie decorating party.  I took my inspiration from this Vintage Valentine I bought at an antique store. The colors for the party are mostly red and gold with a vintage feel.  

I'm really happy with how the party is coming together.  Over the next couple of days I will share DIY's for the decorations, favors, and food.

It's this the sweetest little Valentine?  I paid $2 for the Valentines and then I found this sweet little polka dot hanky for $3 at the same antique store.  Both items will serve as decor for the party.

I'm a very visual person.  Where do you get your inspiration?
