well, why not.

We broke out the fine china and crystal last night.  It was just the four of us, but I said, "Why the hell not?"  If not now...when?

What does Valentine's Day look like for a housewife in suburbia with 2 young boys?

The Table:
  • a glassybaby used as a vase for flowers
  • specially decorated votive candle holder my oldest gave me today (made for me at a party coordinated by other wonderful women!)
  • porcelain tea light holders {found at a local shop ~ c. michelle }
  • marble wine coaster
  • chalkboard napkin rings {at World Market or you can DIY}
  • Waterford Lismore goblets
  • Vintage Noritake China
Valentine's lessons from a modern housewife:
  • if you want flowers, buy them for yourself
  • boys, 5 and 7 years old, can drink from a wine glass and use a cloth napkin
  • keep it simple, but dress it up.  (I am referring to the meal.)
  • doritos look devine on fine china
  • a pan of brownies and a heart shaped cookie cutter.  (You never reveal how you baked brownies in perfect heart shapes.)
