Valentines Day Weekend

I'm participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch.

What are your plans?  Do you celebrate or is it just another day?  I will be waiting patiently to see who responds! LOL! I love celebrating every holiday big or small, but everyday is Valentine's Day with my husband - he is the BEST! February is a busy month for us as we both celebrate our Birthdays and other family members, friends, and our dog - Benji!  I just wanted to take a moment to share a few pics from past Valentines.  I love creating tablescapes and pull out dishes, chargers, stemware, and other decorations I have accumulated over the years.  I also peruse my collection of cookbooks to find the perfect meal or dessert to prepare. Sometimes, if I am running short on time I will run to Eatzies, Central Market for our Entrees and then order cupcakes from my local bakery and decorate them myself.  I made Chocolate Sheet cake and cut into hearts one year and they were yummy. I also made Chocolate covered strawberries for the occasion. Even packaged candy can be pretty in a candy dish.  Make it pretty and keep it simple or go all out. It's not that hard to do! Enjoy all the many pics. And if you will notice my tablescape was sometimes set just for the two of us because it is just us most times.  Secondly, all of your dishes do not have to match or be a set.  Mix it up and have fun with it!

Favorite Things

I love love coffee mugs, teacups, saucers, dishes, etc.  I cannot stop buying them! Here is my latest coffee cup!
