Our kitchen might be decked-out in the purple, gold, and green of Mardi Gras, but it's all pink and red in honor of St. Valentine's Day in our dining room. We're having a special dessert, and I wanted the dining room to be special. What are we having?  Glad you asked!  We're having double chocolate brownies, chocolate-covered strawberries, and champagne.  It's a little pre-Valentine's Day celebration! :D

These lovely candles are from The Cottage Market.

The brownies will be on top and the strawberries on bottom!  :D

Until next time...

  11. Ricki Jill,
    Your Valentine table is so cute. Where did you ever get that 2-tier server for the brownies? I love it! And I still have to get the Sweethearts candies. Valentine's Day wouldn't be the same without them.
