Quaint Valentine Lunch

A simple meal with  for two.  I created Turkey stacked sandwiches out of green Spinach wraps.
I used a large heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the shape.

I used my red ramekin dishes for the red napkins.  I rolled them into a rose.
  The flatware is from Horchow..... "San Remo"


  Heart shaped Cookie cutter
 For the centerpiece, I used  Red Cyclamen flowers.  I bought the cute frilly pink tulle slip at Target. I thought it would make a great cover.




I found the red heart shaped plates at Raleys last year.
 For the pink champagne glasses, I used pink and white frilly hair bands from Target.




I made" Classy Cosmos" Cupcakes.  The recipe can be found here:
I also made homemade marshmallows.  I tinted them pink and added them to the top of the "Cosmos Cupcakes."

I used a very small heart shaped cookie cutter. They can be made in advance and kept in a air tight container.
The recipe for the marshmallows are here:



 Heart Plates - Raleys
Chargers - Pier1
Flatware- "San Remo" Horchow
Pink Champagne flutes - World Market
Pink frilly slip for plant - Target
Pink frilly bands- hair bands- Target
Glass Dessert Pedestals - Ross

  21. Whoa!!!! That frilly little slip...TOO cute!!! I love it! I have seen those in various stores (most recently in Costco) and wanted to buy some for decorating. They are absolutely darling! This one really stands out, gives the table a fun little kick, and goes perfectly with the cute hair elastics!!! I'll bet you buy the cutest clothes and things for your great-granddaughter! Your cupcakes turned out beautifully! I have a really hard time making the icing go up like that. Mine always looks lopsided and weird. I guess it just takes practice...and sobriety! :-) Your sandwiches are the best...pretty AND healthy with the spinach wraps! So you're a fan of cyclamen, too, huh? I bought it in pink last year and it is just so pretty! Your red is gorgeous! I didn't see it in that color.
