The only guests joining Tom the Great and I for Valentine’s dinner will be the charming vintage cupids pictured above and below! Although there’s a whole slew of folks we love, and opportunities galore to show love on this day/month of love, for me the most significant moments will be the ones shared between me and “My Funny Valentine”. (Just so we’re clear, Tom the Great is handsome, well built, and quite intelligent. I chose the song because well…..Ella (youtube it) ~ and he’s funny).
These beloved guys will anchor the tablescape, holding court as only cupid can. Only the good china can “hold a candle”, to these captivating cuties!
Beautiful white roses….
red crystal stems, (and a fancy flute for toasting–notice the hearts on the flutes–saaa perfect),
the glow from real candles…..
and dinner is served! (There is that pesky food thing! I’ll be getting help with that for sure! I’ve told you about Tekia (firstname.lastname@example.org or (913) 523-3519) the fabulous caterer in Kansas City area, and another friend Devon a professional baker (email@example.com or 913-302-4303). I’ll be contacting both of them for assistance–you know, so it’s special! They are still taking orders at the date of this posting.)
Although red doesn’t make its way into my life very often; except for my KC Chief’s t-shirts, red’s not found in my closet or my home décor. It will, however, steal the show on my Valentine’s Day table for two. Red has a way of doing that; just think power tie.
Even cupid takes on a more stately air with a red bow tied around his neck. Kind of….
His chippy toes are my favorite. For me it’s like he’s been outside playing and mom was just too tired for bath time. They all will need a good scrubbing, coming and going!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Cheers to a beautiful Valentine’s Day, my friends! Go out there and make it special for someone. Everybody wants to know they are loved and appreciated!
