♥♥~Calling All Love Birds~♥♥
Tonight's table features this red and white cloth from TJM.
The flatware is Calypso by Towle, purchased at about a third of what Pier One is selling it for, at CTS.
Red charger is from Pottery Barn Outlet, and the dishes are from Le Dollar Tree and cost...a dollar!
I used them once a few years ago in a Halloween Devil table, so it was time.
Your love bird can sit here, tag was on the gift Alma gave me, a Valentine Red Bird.
Doubled napkin and white alabaster ring from William Sonoma Outlet.
A hurricane with a white berry wreath, hearts and red berries is the centerpiece. This was easy, I keep this on my table till after the 14th.
The stems I have never used before are from HG, and the I used the antique glasses from my friend's mom as they had the same shape and some etchings.
Ruffled white bowls from HG, and little white bowls for the butter from CTS.
Fly away now to check out the other tables at Susan's BNOTP Tablescape Thursday, but remember, it won't be available till Thursday morning.
Hope you are planning something sweet for someone on the 14th!
I had a small filet mignon in the freezer that needed to be cooked, and some shrimp.
I sliced the filet mignon thick, seasoned the meat, got the pan hot. No oil, just sprinkle of salt on the pan. Seared it on both sides, lowered the heat and cooked a bit.
Let it sit, then sliced it. Served it on top of linguine with spinach, and did the shrimp in wine sauce. Very quick and easy! I know you aren't supposed to use shaved locatelli cheese on shrimp, but too bad, we like it! :)
The steak was as good or better than all those complicated recipes, high heat, oven off, cover with foil etc recipes!
Cut like butter!
Thanks for visiting!
