Love Is In The Air

Guess what? It's time to start getting ready for Valentine's again. This is always a fun time for grown-ups and children. My mother especially loves Valentine. She and I took a break and started fiddling around with how the table should be set for the party she is giving. She wants to cook a romantic french dinner and have each guest wear a large paper heart like Julia Child's did in the movie Julia & Julia (not even Meryl Streep can do her justice). Can't wait! ..... Some fun little facts I know about Julia Child, who is my ABSOLUTE favorite: she thought Mc Donald's was not bad at all, and she was seen in the Santa Barbara -Costco purchasing the roasted chickens for her dinner. Let's face it she was a very REAL and intelligent woman who was no superficial snob.

Stopping by from SITS. I loved the movie Julie and Julia. I didn't know much about Julia child, but I got into her after the movie. She was a very real woman. Totally unpretentious.

I did enjoy Julie & Julia and thought it would be cool to have the big paper hearts on Valentine party guests. Love your tea set. My daughter would go nuts for that.

I love tea parties. My mother-in-law started the tradition with my daughters when they were small. You can't visit grandma without having a tea party.

Love the Valentine's table and I'm glad I'm not the only one who has decorated the table already! I'm in love with chintz and your (your mom's?) set is so pretty! I LOVE Valentine's Day too. I don't know why... we don't even do much for it. I just love pinks and reds and hearts!!!
