VALENTINE BREAKFAST FOR MY COWBOY

 

Cowboy scape

If you’ve been visiting my blog for awhile, you already know that my husband is a fan of cowboys.  So, for Valentine’s Day breakfast, I am planning a breakfast tray in bed to start my buckaroo off right.  Sausage, biscuits, and hash browns will be served on this unmarked, divided plate,

VALENTINE TABLESCAPES

Valentine Party Table

I’m sharing past Valentine’s tablescapes today.  In 2013, I had a “box lunch” Valentine party.

Be sure to get your napkins.  the larger, red one is to put in your lap, so your boxed lunch won’t get your clothes messed up.  The smaller white one is to dab your mouth and fingers.

Don’t forget to get something to drink.

You can come back later for an “after lunch” mint.

Let’s get this par-tay started by going to visit the links shown below.  This is my fourth year to host this Valentine party, and I can promise you, you don’t want to miss seeing any of these links.  I am also partying with A Stroll Thru Life for the Valentine Cloche Party and Décor to Adore for a Valentine Party.  I’m so glad you attended the par-tay!  laurie

OOOPS! I DO HAVE A FEW MORE VALENTINES

I know I told you I didn’t have any more Valentine cards to put anywhere in my home.  Ummm (hanging head), I forgot I have just a few on the buffet in the sunroom.  I’m linking this buffet (with the shameful few Valentine cards) to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.

Go to A Stroll Thru Life to find more table top links.  Thank you for coming to visit, even though I previously promised I wouldn’t show any more Valentine cards.  I hope you’ll be at my Valentine linky party on February 11th.  laurie

GRATITUDE

Today, I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablscaper and Gratitude Sundays at A La Carte.
I am grateful for the sunshine coming through my windows today (even though it doesn’t allow me to take a head-on picture of my Valentine tree).

I am most grateful for the health of our newest grandson.  He weighed 1 pound 14 ounces when he was born on November 30th.  He is still on oxygen and in the hospital, but he now weighs over 4 pounds.  He is a little miracle, and our family is so grateful for all of you who have been praying for our little Cooper.

THE LAST OF THE VALENTINE CARDS (I think)

If you’re tired of seeing my Valentine card collection, you can now rejoice, because this is my last Valentine card décor post this year (I’m almost sure).  I am partying at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.

I really only have a few cards displayed on the buffet behind our sofa.

BOOK

HEART UNDR CLOCHE

VASE

Q OF HRTS

You can’t count the Queen of Hearts as a Valentine card, right?

K OF HRTS

Anything placed on this buffet is visible from both sides, so, the Queen of Hearts is backed by the King of Hearts (also not a Valentine card).

I previously shared my “snow birds mantel”.  I wasn’t ready to let my snow birds fly away, so, guess what I added to decorate my mantel for Valentine’s Day.  I’m sure you guessed correctly.  (I’m so predictable.)   I added Valentine cards!

I also added Mr. and Miss Penguin, dressed for their Valentine’s date.

I hope I’ll see you here for my Valentine party on February 11th!  I’m almost finished with my blog overload of Valentine cards, so please do come back to visit soon.

(Update on our grandson, Cooper:  He is improving daily.  Although he’s still on oxygen and will be for months, all of his signs are really good.  Recently, one of the nurses in the ICU remarked to my son, “I don’t know who you have praying for this baby, but tell them to keep it up, because they are doing an incredible job!”  YOU and GOD are doing an incredible job, so as the nurse said, please keep it up!  Thank you so much.  laurie)

I hope you’ll party with me on February 11th.
