I’m not one to do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but I do like to do a little something as a nod to the holiday.When the kids were younger, I did much more in terms of decor and gifts. However, this year I wanted to keep it simple while still making it feel festive!
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!
I’ve been a little uninspired in the decorating department since taking all the Christmas decor down, but with Valentine’s Day coming soon, it’s the perfect excuse to break out some pretty pink decor! Today I’m joining some talented blogging friends for the Styled + Set Entertaining Blog Hop. If you’re coming here from our host, Lory of Designthusiam, I’m so glad you’re here!
