Set a pretty table

How about setting a pretty table and inviting your close friends over for a sweet dinner party? Last week we came together on a Thursday night for a lovely dinner party at my house, and I recently read a Proverb about friendships that made me smile.

The sweet smell of incense
can make you feel good,
but true friendship
is better still.

This is how I feel when some of my best lady friends are gathered around the table with me.

Q Squared Valentine's Table

Buy primroses and placed in little galvanized buckets. White IKEA candles, cute party striped pink napkins, this table said “girlfriend party” all over it.
