Cottage Style Party & A Romantic Dinner for Two

With Valentine's Day coming up, I decided to do a romantic dinner for two.

A romantic dinner should have a pretty tablecloth.

Candles and flowers.

Crystal wine glasses.

Pretty floral dishes.
These are my new floral rimmed plates with tulip plates on top.

And tarnished silver plate flatware with a nice patina.

Milkglass vases and candle holder plate is always nice.

And a not-so-subliminal message...

Not the message you were expecting...

Or maybe it is!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!


Hearts and flowers.

The stores are full of them.
My usual $3 bunch of discount grocery store roses jumped up to $10 this past weekend.
For roses that won't be alive by Valentine's Day!

What kind of plans do you have for Valentine's?

Let's see shall we...

I just love these easy hand made hearts!
Easy and handmade - my favorite kind of project!

Head on over to Martinel's blog Martinel Hand made and Decoupage to see all of her easy hand made hearts!

Debbie does it again! 
This time it is her over-the-top pink Valentine's Day trees!

Debbie has decorated the 3 trees and a funeral basket in her dining room with loads of girly pink and white and hearts galore!  Drop in to her blog Debbie Dabble to see all the details!

This has to be the prettiest mantel I have ever seen!

And this isn't the only pretty mantle in Penny's cottage!

  13. I laughed when I got to your chalkboard message! I hear you about the price of flowers the week of Valentine's Day .. I buy flower pretty regularly . I always tell women - Buy your own flowers! It's empowering! There they are - Right there ! Next to the bakery section! I have carved out a little spot in the back garden for a cutting garden- last fall I rescued some sad specimens from the clearance bin. Don't you love cutting flowers in your own garden?
    It is snowing mightily here on the East coast. I have my second cuppa , and am toasting up some challah - looking forward to a nice browse through the party. Thank you for hosting!

  14. Yes, waiting for spring! Thanks for sharing.
