Love all your Valentine's Day touches, especially your heart measuring spoons! We used to make reservations but it's too crowded so we stay in :)

Blondie's Journal said...

It sounds like you are a true romantic...beautiful pictures. I like your white heart dish.

We NEVER go out, way too crowded and mostly young people in looooove! Well, we are in love, too, but I just like to make a nice dinner, dessert and a glass of wine! :)

XO,
Jane

Hi Alma,

I'm not sure what's going on, but I don't see the link at the bottom of your Seasonal Sunday post? Is it just me?

We long ago gave up on going out on Valentine's Day. So we will be eating in. I'll set a pretty table for two.
Your valentine touches are darling. I'm trying to find some of those heart shaped marshmallows.
Thanks for hosting.........Sarah

Ann Krucek said...

I love those pink and white heart marshmallows! I splurged last year and bought a package of them at World Market - only to have my dog eat them all the whole package of them the next day! I have been, and will be again this year, in NYC for work for the last 4 or 5 years - so it is make reservations for me! But not complaining!! Thanks for hosting another fun party.

Dining Delight said...

No reservations for us! We like to dine at home in front of the fire - much more romantic than a noisy restaurant! Loved seeing you Valentine touches! Thanks for hosting Seasonal Sundays!

Thanks for hosting a wonderful party each week. Your "scapes" are always so inspiring with special touches each and every time!

Sonia said...

I love all your Valentine dishes..especially the white heart shaped with the "lacey" border. Just beautiful.
I'm catching up on my blog visits and I wanted to tell you I saw the post you did about your kitchen. Gorgeous...well done and I would never get tired of looking at it either!

Rettabug said...

Thanks for doing SS again this week, Ms. A! I see lots of pretty hearts at your house!

I think I'll pick up steamed lobster & bring it home to enjoy alone with each other. It is such a busy night at restaurants & service is not the best. We'd rather be alone...after all, it is our anniversary! LOL

Looking forward to seeing your tablescape that we got glimpses of here.

Warm Hugs,
Rett

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

I'm planning and hoping for a little of all of the above! I do appreciate you hosting,
Kathy

Designs By Pinky said...

I love all of your hEART things. IF we have company, I set a special table. I doubt we will have company this year but I am thinking of a table for Joe and I. Maybe even next to the fireplace for some romance:):) Thanks for hosting each week. XO, Pinky

Love all your little Valentine's Day touches, so cute and romantic! Thanks for hosting :) Greetings from Australia♥ ~Pernilla

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I normally don't do anything for VAlentines Day since I live alone and I would eat all the candy. But I did by a little red heart shaped wreath for the front door and left up my red xmas candles. I did purchase some candy for the little girls in the neighborhood. Other than that - nothing special, but I love your blog.

Your Valentine's Day decor is so sweet. I think I'm going to visit all the super link ups here while the Super Bowl is on. This maybe a new tradition for me!
