An early Happy Valentine’s Day to all who visit here!
We are celebrating the arrival of Katie tonight and our son Josh and DIL Laura are joining us around the table set for Valentine’s Day.
Dessert will be a Red Velvet cake.
Our dinner tonight is going to be Rib Eye Steaks, Roasted Vegetables, and a Cucumber Tomato Salad. I hope to remember to get a photo of all of us around the table. I’ll edit my post tomorrow to add the photo if it gets taken! Here’s the update…
On Valentine’s day our Small Group is having a potluck meal together. We have joked that the big pot of chili I’m making for that event is ideal for Valentine’s Day because it could give everyone Heartburn. Are you making a special meal on Valentine’s Day or do you go out?
I’m linking up to Kathleen Cuisine for her Let’s Dish weekly event. Here’s a Valentine’s Day bar scape from our condo years.

Your table setting is beautiful, Ellen. What joy there will be around that table!
What a beautiful table for your potluck meal. Hope the chili doesn’t give anyone heartburn. We’re going out since it is our anniversary.
a beautiful table indeed! The cake looks scrumptious, the dishes are so very pretty. Love how you did the centerpiece. Happy Valentine’s! xo marlis
Beautiful! I know your family must enjoy eating at your lovely table! Welcome home, Katie!
Oh what a time you will all have together. I am hosting tomorrow and I know my table will not be as lovely as yours! Still must think festive and cheerful.
Ellen, your table is so beautiful and that red velvet cake is so beautiful. I am so happy that you have a good representation of your family home…and especially your sweet Katie girl!
Happy Valentines day!
I really like your table decor and that cake looks GREAT. I love cake with no frosting. YUM.
Oh how beautiful!! Your table looks gorgeous and so inviting. By now you’ve had your wonderful family gathering and I hope all went well. I love your depression glass “vase” that you used this time and for your condo days Valentine’s table!
You could have done that cake and nothing else – wow does that say, “Valentine’s Day”! your red dishes are beautiful and the “Love” centerpiece is so cute and elegant at the same time.
Oh, I hope you have set a place for me as your menu sounds scrumptious!! And that cake!!!! It’s beautiful. I hope you have a wonderful meal with your family. Linda
Your family is so blessed to have you making such beautifully memories for them!
What a gorgeous table setting – I know it will be a wonderful meal especially because your loved ones will be there.
I’ve never tried a Red Velvet cake. it looks good! Are you posting the recipe at MGCC?
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Your table looks beautiful, Ellen! So elegant! Love the cake and the primroses!
Enjoy your time with Katie home!
How beautiful – my eyes kept looking at that cake!!!
Ellen, I so enjoy your blog. I too love celebrations with family and friends and love to set a fine table. I made the MGCC red velvet cake into cupcakes today to take to the twin grandbabies. They are 2 1/2 and I look forward to their faces when they see the goodies from Nana.
Your Valentine’s table setting is so beautiful, Ellen! The red velvet cake looks amazing. I hope you enjoy a wonderful family gathering –Happy Valentine’s Day!
Ellen, it all looks elegant and I don’t think I would be worthy of sitting a bowl of chilli on that beautiful table scape that you created. I was imagining which boxes you would be needing to haul out of your storage to find all those unique one of a kind embellishments. Enjoy your evening.
Beautiful table, Ellen…I don’t worry about chili giving me heartburn now that I take Prilosec!
Chili = heartburn on V-Day. How cute is that!!! You did two amazing tables, Ellen! And that double-decker cake!!!!!!!! That’s gorgeous! When I read your menu (especially the part about the rib eye steak!), my stomach spoke loudly in a language I’ve never heard! 🙂 🙂 🙂
A gorgeous table in typical ‘Ellen’ style ! I love your valentines … the verse is such a ‘sweet proposal’ …
Beautiful setting! The primroses seem happy to be part of the party.
