Be My Valentine!
Can you believe the calendar is showing February already?
Hey January! Come back…or on second thought perhaps you had better stay where you are, cause you were cold and more cold.
But let’s talk Valentine’s Day which will be here before we know it.
I just love Valentine’s Day…but you knew I would, didn’t you?
I try to find romance everywhere!
I am just a sentimental romantic! 🙂
I love picnic baskets and am fortunate to have accumulated quite a few of them over the years.
In my basket collection, I have a basket for carrying a bottle of wine, two (glass) wine glasses and the different implements for opening etc.
This makes for a “spur of the moment “Picnic” or just a romantic,…
For this vignette, I used my red and white checkered tablecloth that I have had for over 40 years.
It has held up well and always looks festive or it can be more laid back for a picnic.
I have always loved plaids, buffalo checks or whatever the current name….. and when I bought the red gingham, I also bought a blue and white gingham (which is what we called them at the time).
My pizza peel became a breadboard to hold my fruit paste, grapes and brie cheese.
A loaf of Italian bread … you can’t have bread without cheese, so I decided to get one of my favorites, Brie Cheese.
I just love the smoothness of it and when you spread a bit on the bread and top it off with a Plum fruit paste….Yummy!
It doesn’t get any better than that!
Add a few grapes of your choice, a few milk chocolate heart candies…a bottle of your favorite wine and Waaa-Laaa!
Play some soft background music …and you have a very romantic Valentine “event”.
Now how simple is that?….
……of course if the weather is nice, the setting could be outside.
However, from all the weather maps I have seen lately…indoors might be the best idea.
A cozy fire in the fireplace could be the finishing touch!
Are you my dear readers planning something special for Valentine’s Day?
Or do you prefer an impromptu get-a-way to the park?
Share with me, please! 😉
Have a Blessed Day!
