I thought I’d start off what a very special bellini! Strawberry and mint bellini are perfect for Valentines day. When I think of Valentine’s day, I imagine bright, soft colors and berries [for some reason]. This is absolutely refreshing, the sweetness from the strawberries and citrus from the prosecco is a perfect marriage with the cool, minty flavor. You can find my recipe here!
I hope you’re ready for the scrumptious brunch! The bright, gilded tableware is an ideal set up for valentine’s day. Flowers are the perfect table accessory with this china set.
For brunch, I thought I would go with something hearty [drinking all those bellinis] and green. For some reason, in February I’m itching for some green outside. I’m obviously looking forward to spring, and the asparagus and spinach with bell pepper sauce takes me to a spring time gathering.
I hope you’re feeling good after the brunch and bellinis! My favorite valentine’s day memory was when I was in college. I was swamped with papers and homework the night before valentine’s day and failed to get/make any valentine’s for my friends. All of my friends had gotten chocolates, made cards, went all out! I knew I wanted to do something different, so I took a bold move and put on some hot red lipstick and gave everyone kisses on the cheeks as a valentine! Creepy? Yeah, it was. But, I was in college!
I am so glad you stopped by, but before you leave, please take one of our favors with you! I made raspberry macarons [recipe here] and thought it would be a cute, little idea to pack them up in mason jars. You can a print out of the mason jar tags here!
Well, I hope you had a great time. I’m so happy you came over! Thank Nikki for having me. Would love to have you all over at my place, next year.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
