Hearts and Flowers

As we all know, Valentine's Day is a day of romance and affection, with exchange of cards and gifts, and more so, a romantic dinner with an elegant table setting is something truly special on this day with your sweethearts, friends and family members. Believe it or not, there is an intricate connection between love and food.  The surest way to the heart, they say, is through the stomach. A beautiful  table scape is believed to add to your romance. As celebration spreads, spending sometime decorating your dinner table can sure make your day a memorable and delightful one.




Love conquers all things, let us surrender to love..

  
Let your heart guide you... but listen closely, because it whispers.

Love is but the discovery of ourselves, and the delight in the recognition.

Love is not in our choice but in our fate..
No three words have greater power than "I love you".

Love is sweet when it’s new, but sweeter when it’s true.

To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.

The rose speaks of love silently in a language known only to one's heart.

Red and white rose- An indication of bonding and harmony.


A heart that loves is always young.

Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when to people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it become a miracle.

Love and magic have a great deal in common. They enrich the soul, delight the heart. And they both take practice.
The magic words for a great relationship are, " I love you, just the way you are."

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! :)
