We celebrated in very low-key style, as usual; Erik and I both work full time and don't usually get home until 5:00pm or later. I don't really like the fuss and expense of going out to dinner when I can make a nice romantic dinner at home for us, with a table set prettier than any restaurant! We ate in the dining room, which we do fairly often, but I made sure we had all the niceities; linen placemats, damask napkins, the good Mikasa crystal, wine, candlelight, my silver flatware, classical music playing in the background.
The centerpiece was provided by Erik;
He brought me a flower arrangement of pink roses and pink Stargazer lilies. Most of you probably know how much I love flowers and Erik knows that I especially love PINK flowers. He also knows that pink Stargazer lilies are one of my favorites. I have to give him props for not only choosing the flowers himself at the florist's, but he had also ordered it in advance!
He also provided the dessert:
A big box of Godiva chocolates................oh, yes! The man knows me well!
I was excited just looking at this fancy box! Look at that beautiful ribbon! So gorgeous!
I didn't take any pictures of the actual table setting because I'll be showing my Valentine's Day table in an upcoming post, for Tablescape Thursday, even though I made some slight changes.
But here's another little sneak peek;
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life!
