I love to spoil my girlfriends.
They mean the world to me and every year around Valentine’s Day I honor them with a party.
desserts & fruit
The last couple of years I have thrown a brunch. If you want a peek at them you can find them here:
this year’s invitation
I try to incorporate something that is a favorite of mine and build around it.
This year it was Mexican food and Conversation(hearts)
a little look-see at the table
I typically do linen napkins when I have a meal like this, but my inner 13 year old got the best of me when I saw the conversation heart napkins and little treat cups!!
The treat boxes were filled with chocolates, and of course, candy hearts!!
My Mom always got my brother and I a box of conversation hearts for Valentine’s Day.
They have always been a favorite of mine.
I made this centerpiece for the table:
If you click HERE you can see how I did it!!

Jarritos and Iced Tea with Lemon
Fun was had by all….
But you will have to take my word for it, because I totally forgot to take pictures!!
I was too busy eating!! 😉
