Valentine's Day

Hello All!
We had a very nice Valentine's Weekend.
Mr. Darling took me out for an incredible surf and turf dinner on Saturday evening. It was such a treat to share a meal with him alone. No dogs staring at us from the living room...LOL!

Sunday I set the table and decorated for my 2 special guys.

 
 
Even my plain little salt & pepper shakers got dressed up for the occasion.

I decorated their plates with accordion folded paper napkins and little hearts I stitched up on my new machine (courtesy of Santa)



Added some heart confetti.


and a lovely ceramic wine bucket my friend at work gave to me for Christmas.
It is very unique in that it you can use chalk marker on the outside to decorate it for any occasion. I will definitely be using this a lot!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday :)
Karen

  7. It looks like you celebrated in style, Karen. The photo of you and your husband is beautiful. I like your table decor. Last night we had friends over for dinner and I dressed the table in a black and white buffalo check cloth and used red napkins. It's a pretty look. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Nancy
