Have you seen the huge Valentine cards at Wal-Mart?
I thought they were fun, so I picked up two for our kids. Big cards for big kids.
Fun Son dropped by last weekend. I doubt he noticed them on this table, but I wonder.
Sweets for the sweet over red burlap atop a white traditional table-cloth.
Red, white and black are in order – dictated by the Valentine cards.
The soup de jour calls for a break towards red with pink and green. And, yes, we need flowers for Valentine’s.
This tea towel was a gift for Christmas from my sweet friend G. (The other shoo-bop girl.)
Yes, we should let love guide our life. Love can guide our tablescapes, too.
DIY Lace-Trimmed Napkins are a nice contrast with the chunky jeweled napkin rings (a gift from another friend many years ago).
The gold is a repeat of the bronze flat-ware my grandparents brought from Pakistan.
While love is guiding your evening, don’t forget to light the candles.
Are you planning a special dinner for Valentine’s night?
