As Valentine’s Day approaches, thoughts turn to romance, and to romantic spots on the planet. Spots like Paris – I haven’t been since I was quite young, but I hear it’s aging well! I noticed this distressed-look fabric ribbon printed with iconic French images and text, and found a glittering Eiffel Tower with which to pair it. I’m also intrigued by the chocolate brown spruce I used in this photo. It’s such an unusual – but gorgeous – color choice for Christmas! Pair it with a white tree and either pink or blue – yummy color palette for a tree. My second Tuesday find is – here I go with chocolate again – a rich, brown glittering poinsettia. I just realized my theme – I must be anticipating Valentine chocolates coming my way! This could be a problem on the calorie frontier .. maybe I’ll just stick to a little eye-candy instead. (No fudge for me. No truffles for me. No M&Ms for me. I can do it. I can do it.) What’s on your schedule for romance this February – Paris or chocolate? Or both?

P.S. For a truly romantic holiday, book a get-away for two at The Inn at Christmas Place – pick your package, with choices including a gift basket, arranged roses, and more. Why not add some chocolate-dipped strawberries from Mrs. Claus’ Candy Kitchen, or a gourmet Valentines apple to share? We have a lot of ways to help you celebrate!
