Fancy Valentine’s Dinner Party

My Hubby and I wanted to do something special and a little different this Valentine’s Day. We decided to put on a fancy dinner for three couples, some of our closest friends. We had a blast serving them and trying to make their night really special! Here are some of the photos of decorations from the evening! We’re already looking forward to next year!

I wanted to get photos of each dish… but I totally forgot and only got the salad and the dessert! Bummer bob!!

Spinach with strawberries, candied walnuts, feta cheese, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing... YUM!

Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake... ribbon curls made by my sweet Hubby!

My dear and beautiful friends!

a lovely married couple :)

a wonderful not-quite-married-or-engaged-yet-couple ;)

Yet another grand married couple! ;)

the cooks! :)

And they lived happily ever after! ;)
