We've had a long weekend here in Canada, so with some extra family time and the added 'bonus' of having the flu for two of the three days, meant I haven't had a moment to share these photos from our Valentines day dinner. It was kind of last minute.
Levi asked the other night to eat on the floor around our coffee table, so I thought Valie day was a great excuse! It was a pretty standard meal, but I did make this fluffy marshmallow slice for a little love themed dessert. And I used these dip-dyed treat bags for some simple place settings. Other than that, I had everything else in my linen cupboard or shelves. I made the acrostic name places out of a cereal box (hello recycling) and decorated with my fave white pen. My mum does this kind of acrostic thing a lot and I think it's a really easy & fun way of showing love in how you appreciate someone. Reading out 'what each person was' was a highlight. I think I might just keep this tradition going!

I hope you had a lovely weekend too. I'm really looking forward to the week ahead!

P.S. If you're interested in reading a little more about me, I updated my about page over the weekend. Silver lining of being sick in bed! : )

  1. Those acrostic name cards are such a darling idea...and would make a great family keepsake!

  2. I went to throw the cards out but Dave wanted to keep them - obviously liked them more than I thought! : )

  3. Gorgeous as always!

  4. My family did this for me at my 40th, went around the table and gave an adjective for each letter of my name! It was fun! Post me a piece of slice?
