Valentine's Day

My best friend and I hosted a Valentine dinner for our boyfriends in a tent in the back yard. But we took no pictures :(

So, I'll have to describe everything!

We set up a large camping tent, and covered the poles in fairy lights. It filtered the light just enough to be absolutely stunning!! A card table was set with a white linen table cloth, formal china, and formal place settings.

We spent all day cooking:
Valentine’s Day Dinner

Hearts of Romaine
Sprinkled with Love (strawberries cut into hearts and almonds)
Sweetheart Dressing

Main Course
Baked Salmon with Crush’d lemon
Paired Potatoes
Flame seared Asparagus

Chocolate Strawberry Desserts
The salmon was wrapped in cucumber laces, and the asparagus was artistically laid on top of the mashed potatoes. The desserts were handmade chocolate cups filled with chocolate mousse with a strawberry cut like a rose on top.
