“Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
1 John 4:8
Hello sweet friends, and happy February! I am so glad you stopped by because it is the first Monday of the month which means Monday Morning Blooms! I can hardly believe it is already February…didn’t we just celebrate Christmas?! This month is quite special to me because not only do I love celebrating Valentine’s Day, but we also celebrate our anniversary this month! More about that later. Most people think of celebrating Valentine’s Day with your spouse, but it can also be the perfect time to share time with the precious ladies in your life…mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends! Entertaining a group of ladies can be really simple if you set up your coffee table with a few sweet treats that you can buy at the grocery store. Coffee, conversation, and sweet treats…what’s not to love?!
Flowers and Valentine’s Day just go together which is our common theme for this edition Of Monday Morning Blooms! My Renaissance Man often buys flowers just because, but I always receive a lovely bouquet on February 14.
I was fortunate enough to find gorgeous pale pink and white lisianthus. I was hoping for ranunculus, but I thought these would be just perfect. It was easy to find rose-colored alstroemeria and seeded eucalyptus to finish the arrangement that was placed in my silver teapot.
I never eat candy, but I do splurge on Valentine’s Day. My beloved Mother’s tiered tray was filled with Reese’s peanut butter hearts, Hershey’s Kisses, Oreo Strawberry creme flavored cookies with a variety of sweet sayings, and red velvet cupcakes with buttercream icing!
But, then I had an idea to just have some fun with the coffee table. I moved things around and added a few things! You will see that it takes on a lot of color, and you know I love color!
…colorful little heart plate for the cupcakes…
..and Valentine’s Day cards that I have saved for so many years were placed in a collage-style on the coffee table! It was so sweet to take them out and read them again. Needless to say, there were a few tears that were shed.
