I wanted to share my special Valentine's night with my sweetie. When I got home from work on Monday I cleared the table of the pretty pink cherub dishes, etc. and set up a romantic dinner for two. I used my black and white toille table cloth, black place mats, and my rose point and red transferware dishes. It turned out so pretty and very romantic.
James bought me an arrangement of flowers in that red vase in the center of the table and I wanted to reuse it for this special dinner. I went to the grocery store to buy some red roses that are usually $9.99 a dozen but were $17.99 a dozen especially for Valentine's Day! Oh what a joy! So I settled for red carnations and white daisies that were $4.00 each and I think they are just as beautiful!!! I put the arrangement together when I got home and it turned out so pretty!
When James got there he was bearing gifts and Italian food. We had an eggplant dish, baked ziti, Greek salad, and minestrone soup. They have the best bread ever and we enjoyed that too!
James also brought me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. I was so surprised and happy. He is such a sweet man and a wonderful boyfriend to me! He spoils me with love and I am so thankful he is in my life! I put together a basket of Valentine's gifts for him too.
After we enjoyed our romantic, candle-lit dinner we watched "The Bachelor" because I am addicted to that show. James is such a good sport and he endured the entire show with me. Love will make you do crazy things, huh?
Then we enjoyed a fondue for two that I put together. I was surprised I had all the needed supplies. I put whole strawberries, bananas, angel food cake, graham crackers, pretzel sticks, and marshmallows in their own separate bowls and then melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl. We used wooden barbecue skewers for dipping. This was such a fun and delicious treat to share together!
James and I had such a wonderful Valentine's Day evening together. I am so in love with him and I am so excited for our future together. Every day is magical when I am with him.
We have exciting plans for the weekend and I will be sharing them with you on Monday (hopefully) as well as a Cherry Truffle cookie bar recipe, and pictures of my bedroom, living room, bathroom, and kitchen all dressed up for Valentine's Day!
I hope you have a blessed weekend!
