We are having a special dinner at home tonight. I know! Valentines Day is not until Tuesday. There are lessons learned in the past only remind us that if you want to go out for a special and romantic dinner – don’t do it on the 14th of February. I think marketing has trained our society that we must make a mad dash to our favorite restaurant on Valentines Day. Besides tonight we will be more relaxed to enjoy our dinner and in reality I never know when my husband is going to come home after work. He is in health care biz and that is not a 9 – 5 job!!!
We have a beautiful silver champagne/wine bucket that normally gets used only for flowers. This red begonia looks like roses.
I think we will have a Cosmo – I can only have one!!! ONE!! Those things beg me to have more than one but again…..”lessons learned”……..one is plenty for this girl. I love these Waterford Martini glasses. They get used one time a year – kinda sad, huh!
We have this small table in the corner of our living room. It is actually an antique card table. The tablecloth is from my precious Aunt Pearl who told me she made it – but my mother said she doubted it. I loved my Aunt Pearl so much, I always look at this tablecloth and imagine that she did make it. But, my mother was probably right………there would of been no way my Aunt Pearl could of sat still long enough to crochet the tablecloth.
We have a small collection of monogrammed silver – I love these butter knifes.
The chargers are actually over sized dinner plates that I only have 4 of them – I think they came from Home Goods over 10 years ago.
The dinner plates are Johnson Bros. Chippendale pattern.
The bread plate/salad plate is Villeroy & Boch Fasan
Water and Wine glasses are Waterford Lismore
Martini glasses are Waterford
Martini shaker from Pottery Barn
Happy Valentines to all!
