How do you have the perfect Valentines Day at home?
1) Lobstergram: We had a wonderful night dining on lobster bisque, crab cakes and lobster from Lobstergram. Top it off with key lime pie!!!
2) A gorgeous table:I set the table with our Royal Crown Derby China (Old Avesbury) and added in my Grandmommie's (Coco's namesake) purple glasses, and waterford crystal for our water glasses. It was my Father who encouraged me to get the RCD and gave me all my pieces! He also gave me the waterford glasses and my Towle (Old Master, but not pictured) silver!I treasure it now and every time I use it I am so grateful to have it! Thanks Dad!!!! Setting a fancy table makes you feel wonderful.
3) Roses from hubby and a mushy card!
The perfect evening!!
Did you watch Oprah's Valentines Day episode rerun? The opening wish she granted just kills me. Maybe because I LOOOOOOOOOVE Patty Labelle!!! Watch this unsuspecting husband as he fulfills his dream of doing a duet with her!!!
Who's your dream duet partner? Mine would be Luther Vandross (may he rest in peace). I don't know if I could keep singing like this guy did!!!
If your kids are dying to have a "sleep over" but are too young, try having a pretend one. Invite the friend over and leave the kids with a baby sitter while you and the parents go out for dinner. Let the kids have their sleeping bags and PJ's and go to sleep. When they wake up in the morning asking where their friend is, say they just left!
