Celebration Inspiration
Happy Valentines Day! I couldn't resist posting these festive tabletop ideas from  For us, this day has really become very "kid-centric."  All three of my children were packed off to school with bags of heart candy, chocolates and temporary tattoos to pass around. But, after seeing these pretty place settings, I'm tempted to maybe make a bit more of an effort today. A few little pretty vases on the table, maybe some champagne and strawberries, nothing too fancy. Or, maybe just some mint chip ice cream and a Nora Ephron rom-com? This all sounds pretty good right now and very well might make it's way into our do you spend Valentine's Day? Is it a big deal with you or just an excuse for chocolate and candy (which is really what's happening around here!)


  1. Happy V-Day to you, Sue! These tablesettings are so pretty and festive.

    Happy V Day!


  4. Happy Valentine's Day Sue ~ eat lots of chocolate!!


  5. Love the styling in these photos. I still feel like all the holiday celebrations were not too long ago, so I like to keep Valentine's day low key. Just eat a nice meal together and a box of chocolate with a list of the different chocolates is always nice. Nothing fancy.

    I can just picture your kids racing to school with a bag of goodies - so cute. Valentine's was always fun as a little kid. My Dad used to always give my Mom and I a flower or a little gift when he came home from work. Such great memories.

    Happy Valentine's day Sue!
