I'm sure you all know by now that I appreciate a cute, red heart (evidence above).

And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, hearts are everywhere at the moment. Hurrah!

So today I bring you the heart felt (or should that be felt heart) Valentine's day edition of BUY or DIY?

Heart cake toppers are cute, fun and whimsical. When teamed with a pure white cake, I think can look rather chic too.

They come in all shapes, sizes and fabrics…

Fabric Heart Cake Topper

BUY these mini Ban.do shoe clips ($10) but don't clip them to your shoes ~ clip them to a wooden BBQ skewer. Et voila! You have a darling heart cake topper…and the great thing is you can use them after the wedding to make your shoes look pretty!

You could even make giant stuffed fabric hearts (or buy heart cushions) they'd make fab photo props ~ see!
