Annual Love Fest March 2013

Our Annual Love Fest was on March 2 this year('cause of everyone's schedules).
It's a get-togerther to celebrate Valentine's Day.
It was held at my best friend's home and the theme for the party
was 'The Key To My Heart'.

Our welcome to the party.

All red table with a beautiful candle centerpiece. I've shown these
 with the crowns inside on my Christmas post (without the candles).
Handmade napkin rings and wine charms.
The hostess of the party made the napkin rings,
wine charms and place cards. 
Handmade place cards that we got to keep.

Every napkin ring was different.

Every wine charm was different.

A box like this filled with party favors reflecting the theme was
our gift.

Mini cupcakes for dessert. Our menu consisted of  melt in you mouth steaks
barbecued on the grill, garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and
onions, salad with toasted walnuts, feta cheese and dried cranberries. Before
dinner we had two hot dips (one was spinach) with heart shaped crackers.
And a pink sparkly champagne. Merlot and pinot noir were the wines with
Some of the party favors that were in the gift box that we
got to take home. The one that says "Key To My Heart"
is a rubber stamp and the fancy key with tassel is a can opener.

The necklace I wore representing the theme that I got 
at the Vintage Marketplace. See the little key and heart?
You can see the shoes I wore here.

And all your heart might desire!

The decor is so pretty. I hope you ate a lot of cupcakes (I would have). It might even be fair to say that I could use a cupcake intervention:)
