No, it’s not spring yet, but we have blue birds nesting in lots of places. I love their color, don’t you?
Love is in the air…
This flowery tablecloth is a
big push hint for some flower delivery to occur at your house for Valentine’s Day.
Leave this page open on your computer and flaunt it in a high traffic area in your home. Would that
shove nudge enough action?
PERFECT by Patricia Neely Dorsey
If there has ever been a more perfect day,
I can’t remember it;
And if I have ever loved you more,
I certainly cannot recall;
Everything is right with the world
(Or at least in my world)
And I want it,
Thank you, Patricia! What is Valentine’s without poetry, flowers, and love birds? And chocolate!
No chocolate is on my table, but that is easily remedied with a little stir in the kitchen.
A stir in the kitchen can cause a stir in his heart.
Oh, and hearts! We must have hearts at Valentine’s.
Do you have a bazillion of the tiny-sized doilies left over from the sets you buy? I do, too!
In an effort to use a small percentage of those bazillion, I made these doily hearts for under the clear plates in today’s setting.
After folding this first one, flip it over and add two unfolded doilies at the top. (Here’s where you have to get Big Bird out of your mind in order to see the heart. 😉 )
The “gold” charger you see below is actually silver, like the others, but the light angle changed it to gold. My camera skills need more work!
Lacy hearts call for frilly accents, so I off-set a DIY lace-trimmed napkin over each red place mat. That softened and frilled things up a bit.
Glittery silver napkin rings add a little more bling to the tablescape.
Yep. Even casual Valentine’s settings can handle extra bling.
Have you set a Valentine Table for your family to enjoy? Kitchen settings are so versatile. This casual tablescape with dressy touches here and there makes kitchen life a little more special than the norm.
Keep love in the air this month…but keep those love birds separated (wink)!
