Romantic Table for Two

Happy Sunday all.  What have you all been up to??  I have been busy doing my usual runs.  Going to the Farmers Market and supermarket getting ready for the week ahead and to celebrate Valentine's Day.  My favorite part of Valentine's Day is spending time with my hubby and having my favorite treat, chocolate covered strawberries.  Oh how I love those.  

My husband and I like to stay home for Valentines.  It is less hectic and more enjoyable at home.  The food and service at restaurants can be a a bit rushed and disappointing during holidays.  We always plan a special meal that we can cook together.  It is so much fun to cook with my husband.  And the food is much more flavorful and scrumptious than going to a restaurant.  Besides, I can set a prettier table.

To set the stage, I used my Mikasa Rosemead china as promised to put together this romantic and charmingly intimate Valentine's Day table for two.   All it is missing is the delicious food and wine.







Vintage flatware, roses and crystal will easily give this table a romantic feel.












































I hope you all have a romantic and wonderful Valentine's Day.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Hugs,

Janet
