Valentine's Dinner

We hosted a Valentine's dinner for some of the couples from our small group at church today. I love hosting get-togethers and I actually really enjoy putting together the details of a nice meal. We had so much fun that I'm not sure I will ever want to go out for Valentine's Day again--this might have to be an annual tradition :)

On the menu included:

-Cheese fondue with bread, vegetables, and fruit for dipping
-Stuffed chicken breasts
-Roasted asparagus
-cheesy scalloped potatoes
-Chocolate souffle with caramel sauce
-Chocolate covered strawberries

I tried something a little unusual and used a vintage pink chenille bedspread for a tablecloth.

Wanting to keep things simple, I limited the decorations to candles in pewter candlesticks and baby's breath in small glass bottles. To dress things up, I used my good white china and crystal glasses.

For a simple favor I decided to place a handwritten love quote at each seat. All the quotes are verses from the Bible referencing love, and I made everyone read theirs aloud before we began our meal. I know, I'm sentimental.

I meant to get photos of the food and friends enjoying our dinner, and I completely forgot! I guess we were having to much fun :)

Wising you a very Happy Valentine's Day from my roost to yours!
