Family Valentine Dinner

It’s that time of year and I have a fabulous meal planned for the children and grandchildren. They may have their own plans on Valentine’s night so I may hold this over until Saturday. But one night belongs to Mom.

I could not decide between pink or red for the holiday so I chose both. Start with my new Pier One chargers, finally on sale. Red frilly plates and my little Valentine plates with red flatware.


Mikasa French Country glasses for water or wine.

I added a little cupcake cup filled with sweets.

Red and Pink roses in this beat up silver ice bucket, I bought at a yard sale and was planning on painting but I still like the patina of the bucket as it is.

A tiny Potter Barn cake plate for a pretty dessert. 

We have had terribly cloudy weather and I have been trying to increase my light exposure on my camera so my pictures are a little wonky…. Is that a camera adjective?

So here is the menu:

Steak au Poivre
Twice Baked Potatoes
Cesar Salad

Valentine over the Moon Pies… (recipe coming tomorrow)
