I like to make every holiday feel special, and that usually comes through on my table with food and flowers! I was in charge of planning Valentine’s Day this year and one of the things I wanted to do was make some homemade milk chocolate fondue. I went to Randall’s to shop for some fancy kebabs for the chocolate fondue and I think they turned out so cute.
I LOVE fresh flowers too and sometimes I just have to treat myself to them when I’m at the grocery store. I love the debi lilly design™ arrangements that can be found at Randall’s or any Albertsons store. You know I love my gold! I got this big gold leaf vase for only $16.99. I could not believe the price of that! So good.
Here is a photo of my ‘haul’ if you will! I could not resist all of the gold goodness!
I wish you could smell the lilies through the screen. Isn’t this arrangement stunning?
I got two of these debi lilly design candle holders with gold stripes on them – but I think this makes for a great vase too! I love gold and fresh greens together!
For the fondue dippers I got jumbo marshmallows, brownie bites, strawberries and pound cake at Randall’s. I think pineapple or graham crackers would be amazing too. I cut the brownie bites into heart shapes (just with a regular knife) and the pound cake into little rectangles just because I think they look so cute like that! The skewers can be put together beforehand or you can just arrange the dippers all together on a tray.
