Valentine’s Day is marked with passion red in my diary. I’m taking the evening off for a special moment with my sweetheart... I’ve set the scene: dimmed lights, fresh flowers and a little present for my man... I can't wait to see what I’m getting.
Ingrid, age 35, married, 2 children Super heroine of everyday life who juggles her time to perfection between husband, two kids, a creative job and a devouring passion for interior decoration.
My pair of fine, transparent glass plates on a linen table cloth adds a romantic touch to the evening’s table. A trendy candle holder and paper napkins with a discreet red motive liven up my décor.
I'm not a fan of traditional bouquets. I like to arrange large rustic flowers in a jug! Stylish, right?
Elegant, contemporary stemmed glasses or simple, vintage ones? I’m going for the fifties style. I hate that total look: I like to mix modern and retro. And I can’t stand place mats... Ugh!
I’m keeping my pretty stemmed glasses for a tiramisu-style dessert: a super trendy presentation.
Slaving away for hours behind the stove is not my thing. I get quality products from the butcher and the local farm. Tournedos Rossini with boiled new potatoes, and we’re ready for action!
For dessert, I’ve chosen “finger mezze” with small cakes that I’m cutting into quarters.
