♥ Valentines Day ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

It is 4 years since we were last together on Valentines Day so its really not something we keep, but I've been wanting an excuse to create a special dinner so Valentines Day seemed a good enough excuse!?!

Red was the theme for table decor & food (as much as possible!)

I wanted to keep costs as low as possible & use as much stuff as I could find around the house ... it was surprising what I found. All I bought was the food, the heart confetti for 99p & 6 white candles for £1. Not bad :)

The larger candle holder was a little nik-nak I got ages ago for £1!

We had pork loin with raspberry sauce, in keeping with the red theme :)

For desert I made raspberry & blackberry jelly & dropped some white chocolate shavings on the top!

I came across a recipe for Raspberry Valentine Cupcakes (will post recipe another time) - the cakes were yummy but the icing a disaster - any quick/easy recipes for this would be appreciated!!

Finally, it was nice to chill out next to the fire after a busy day :)

If you celebrated, I hope you had a lovely day :)
