Valentines Day Dinner

Ever year for Valentines Day I make what my family calls a "fancy" meal. A "fancy" meal at my house is when we get out the crystal and put candles on the table.  This year I tried to dress the table up a bit by using silver platters as chargers.  I had seen this idea on pinterest and thought I would try it.  The table really turned out pretty.

Of course I did not have four matching silver platters so I used what I had.

 I put some mercury glass candle holders in the middle of the table and done.  It looked gorgeous, a lot prettier than the pictures make it look.  I seem to have a real difficult time photographing my table. 

On the menu for this "fancy" meal was Stuffed Mushrooms, Chicken Breast Supreme, Asparagus, and Red Velvet Cake for desert.  It was yummy!

 Hope all of you have a wonderful Valentines Day and thanks for stopping by! 

Lots of Love,
