Letters to Juliet

Hello Ladies!

     I hope everyone had a "special" evening with their loved ones on Valentines.
Here was quite. I was up way to early to catch a train ride to DC for a job interview/test.  The earliest train out of DC was at 3:35. By the time I got home I was beat!  I am not use to those "early" morning rises and I am use to those "late owl" nights! Needless to say, I crashed early! We will have a dinner another night.
     I though I would carry over last weeks post to this week with the Letters to Juliet.  After being in Verona and fell in love with the city and then the movie came, I was all into it to re see the places that I had once visited.
The "What If" post and this post are inspirations from the movie.  I hope you enjoy the pics!

2 doz of chocolate covered strawberries I did for my brother's sweetie

I used his gift as a centerpiece until I got mine

I thought these butter dishes were so cute. Came from Sonoma Williams

Found these lovely heart shape plate at Wegmans. The square plate at Khol's

Every arrangement that I made was in a coffee mug, chocolates, a glass rose and of course these yummie strawberries!

covered in pretzels, mini chocolate chips, nuts, pearlized pearls, and peppermint. Scrolls are in colored white chocolate and peanut butter chocolate. Dipped in Dark, Milk or White and only the good chocolate.

A special berry just for you....

In front of our place setting I have our wedding picture with love letters scattered all over the table.

I bought this sparkling brut for the bottle. I hope it tastes good.....

Mr. Me came through....My favorite..Tulips!

Note cards (love letters) scattered on the table

Note paper in a cute container found at the dollar store.

To the right is the letter that was written to Juliet and the response letter with the pen. A very girly girl movie.....

a little candlelight to set the mood....

candlelabras came from ebay. Purchase 2 of them and 1 is silver plated and the other one is pewter plated. I guess you can say I flubbed up on that purchase......ugh!
