Valentine Dinner canceled to go to an Auction!
Hubby and I decided to have a pizza and go to the auction on time, where I bought more dishes. lol This past week we decided to have our first Valentine Dinner here at home in thirty-one years. We have always gone out to eat on Valentine’s night. I did not post this dinner last week for I posted our Valentine’s Breakfast. I know you all are saying another Valentine’s Tablescape, but the only hearts are mine and hubby’s with our wedding photo.
Close up of place setting
For the place setting I use a silver and a red place mat, The white dishes were my husband Grandmother’s everyday dishes. I have had a request of the name of the dishes, I have no idea. The cup has USA on the bottom, all other pieces are not marked. I placed a red square plate on the bottom, added a silver plate, the white plate, and in the bowl, I place a rose. The bread plate hold the napkin with the silver napkin ring, with our initial. The flatware, also has our initial and I have had the flatware for twenty years, sorry I do not know the name. The water glass is my Early American Prescut Crystal. The stemware, I bought at an antique store in Water Valley, Mississippi. Sorry I do not know the name, it just looked good with my Early American Prescut Crystal collection, which a stemware was not made in this collection.
Table length view, facing the cabinet Hubby built to hold my Early American Prescut Crystal. The doors, he cut off to fit, are old french door of my Craftsman’s Bungalow.
Hubby grilled steaks and baked sweet potatoes with butter and cinnamon. The rolls were bought at the grocery.
A green salad, we forgot to add the tomatoes, and not just for the pictures, after dinner, there sat the tomatoes on the butchers block.
The cream cheese cake placed on a Early American Prescut Crystal cake plate and stand with a silver cake plate in between the crystal. We had a store bought sampler cream cheese cake. We did not think we would like it, but it was great and only $5.00 for the cream cheese cake.
Now remember, my dining room is still in the remodel zone. The board in the background is a door way, I knocked out, to create a butler’s pantry. Hubby closed it up with the board for now. Hubby and I still have not come to agreement on my butler’s pantry! lol I have to laugh it was Valentine’s Dinner. So when we do agree, the sheet rock can go up.
The centerpiece is an urn, my sister, Doris gave me on my 50th Birthday last year. I change out the bouquet’s for different occasions. The urn is filled with red roses, with two silver candle sticks, covered in gold and red beads. The heart frame is Hubby and I on our Wedding Day. Three little red candles in my Early American Prescut Crystal saucers. With two little birds.
View of table with the sideboard, which holds my crystal lamps, and a pineapple, I can’t wait to cut, and plant the top.
I have to say the salad was wonderful, as was all the food Hubby served!
