We celebrated Valentine's Day twice this week. Mr. Fanatic and I had a lovely dinner on the 14th, but since our youngest daughter had to work, she and her boyfriend Nick celebrated Valentine's day on the 15th.
I set the table the first night and placed the fabric heart ornaments on each place setting, wrapped around a silver napkin ring. My mother in law gave me three silver napkin rings, but this one with her name engraved on it is my favorite.
I wait all year to order these chocolate hearts from Sees. The red foil hearts are only sold for a couple of months and aren't available after Valentine's Day. I wish they sold them all year round because they are so good!
Of course Mr. F. gave me some lovely flowers.
Mr. F. made a steak dinner for us on Valentine's Day, then the following evening, he coached our daughter's boyfriend and taught him how to grill a Filet Mignon, make mashed potatoes and a Dijon mustard sauce. Nick brought over enough food for all of us to eat, but they had their dinner in the breakfast nook and we had ours in the formal dining room.
The dinners on both nights were so wonderful, especially because I didn't have to cook!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's week!
