Somehow, I just ran out of time and didn't get to post
my VALENTINE tablescape for my dinner with MR. SWEET NOTHINGS...
so please just 'play-like' it's still VALENTINE'S NIGHT.....
*
We always love our BLACKBERRY WINE with our evening meal...
just one wine glass full and that's all....
*
Red plates, Walmart
Red flatware, Target
Red and white placemats and napkins , TJMAXX
The cake stand is vintage and belonged to my mother...
*
LOVE DOVES and PEARLS
for our centerpiece
*

A very simple meal of
GRILLED BUTTERFLY PORK CHOPS
CREAMY, BUTTERY MASHED POTATOES
BROCCOLI
GARLIC BUNS
*

FRESH, RED, RIPE AND SWEET STRAWBERRIES
go so well with our favorite wine...

I know all the other ladies and gents that signed up to do
TABLESCAPE THURSDAY

XO bj

Oh BJness! Boo you? No, way, honey. We're booing Ashley Judd, remember? lol I love your Valentine's table. It's just beautiful! Love all the lovely red! Those little white love birds are just perfect. Yum, I love me some butterfly pork chops. I can almost taste them. Now, BJness, I must tell you, I'm so thankful you did not serve any buttermilk. I hate that stuff! lol I came back and saw where you added my idiotic comment about the buttermilk. I am crazy you know! lol
You are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Why would we boo and hiss a beautiful tablescape? A beautiful table is a beautiful table no matter what the theme or time of year and yours is a beautiful table! This is very romantic! The doves are a perfect touch!
Have a fabulous weekend!
