I really was not planning on decorating for Valentine's Day. We really always just celebrated with the children leaving little heart shaped boxes of chocolates on their pillows, along with a special valentine! However, why not pull together something a little celebratory just for the two of us, right?
There is never a time, when I don't enjoy using my Old British Castles dinnerware by Johnson Brothers. I dressed the table with a lace tablecloth which had been used at my Bridal Luncheon, Grandmother Estelle's pink satin vases, my angel statue which was a gift from #1 son, Greg, the valentine's candles I had repurposed a few weeks ago, pink and red linen napkins and a few other knick-knacks. It's always a good thing to celebrate those moments in life you know.
The Darling requested my rich southern banana pudding this year,
rather than anything chocolate.
This is a rich, creamy custard that can be doubled if serving more than two.
Romantic? Yes....he thinks so!
