First, thank you for all of your well wishes in response to my last post. They have great healing power.
It just dawned on me that Valentine’s is a few days away. To escape the crowds and avoid the hassle of finding a place to eat without a reservation, I started years ago making that a special evening at home for which the hubby is most grateful.
This year that won’t happen as I’m not quite ready for kitchen duty, but let’s take a look back at tables that helped make the Valentine meal special.
Most years we’ve eaten at what we call the big table. After all, it is a special evening.
Sometimes the table has a touch of elegance,
and Valentine’s is a perfect time to bring out those pieces associated with people I love.
More often than not the table is playful with those mixed patterns and colors I so like.
On those February evenings when the weather is spring like and dove songs fill the air, we take advantage and eat on the screen porch, always a treat.
No matter where we eat or how the table is set, flowers help make it special
and none are more special than the bouquet I get each year from the hubby.
No, there won’t be a dinner at home or a special table this year, but looking ahead to next week I have other plans that will give the hubby a night off from bringing me the evening meal. Shhhh, don’t tell!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
