Dinner Series | Valentine no. 3

As the holiday of love quickly approaches all thoughts turn to pink, red, and white! We decided to glam it up a little by adding hints of gold accents to a favorite on the scene… the chevron pattern. Gorgeous garden roses, sweet pink ranunculus and astilbe adorn the intimate table setting in pink depression glass + half dipped 24k gold bottles.  Champagne is the drink of choice on this special day and we added a sweet touch by serving pink champagne. Why not open something special for just the two of you to share?

So enough about all the pretty parts…lets take a look at the menu!  Square One Cafe created a delectable pairing of courses.  To start, they  served a smoked salmon canapé on pumpernickel  toast. A mini ravioli with half marinara sauce and half garlic cream sauce was next, handmade and oh so special in the shape of a heart. A strawberry and arugula salad topped with Asiago cheese and a special citrus poppy seed vinaigrette was a nice light touch before the main entree. A petite filet with a sweet potato haystack and creamy bleu cheese drizzle, stole the show, accompanied by mini marinated mushroom skewers, and roasted baby vegetables. A light sweet treat ended the night with special Valentine macaroons by sugar b’s bakeryand fresh berries.

dinner series | intimate gatherings no.2

en·ter·tain·ing /ˌentərˈtāniNG/  adjective- providing amusement or enjoyment.

We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just weddings or annual soiree’s. We feel entertaining should be simple, uncomplicated and natural.   There is nothing greater than dining together… you don’t need weeks of planning, seating charts or name cards.  when planning an intimate dinner set the stage with simple floral, great food and most of all A M A Z I N G company.  One again we collabrated with our fabulous neighbors at square one cafe to bring you the first of many post for our dinner series.  A big thanks to brenna with flying 3k photography for capturing all the beautiful details.

Cheers!

Heather + Amanda
