I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
Today is one of my favorite posts of the year! I’m joining my friend Lory of Designthusiasm as part of her Styled + Set: Holiday Entertaining Tour. I joined this tour last year, and she always has amazingly talented people in the group. This blog hop has over 20 bloggers sharing their holiday tables and entertaining tips, and I absolutely love it!
This year my Christmas decor has gone in a decidedly different direction, and I couldn’t be happier! Recently, I shared my kitchen tour and my entry way, both of them softened with blush pinks and white. So of course, for my first tablescape of the year, I went with the same palette! Today I’m sharing my Christmas Table Setting as part of the Seasons of Home Holiday Series, hosted by Kristen of Ella Claire.
Are you ready for summer entertaining? To me, this time of year always seems simpler and just a little more relaxed than any other season. There is just something about lingering after a dinner party on the patio on a summer evening, don’t you think?
