Something Simple

Happy Superbowl Sunday, everyone ("Let's Go, Giants!")!  Being married to the biggest NY Giants fan *evah,* our kitchen is a mess right about now, as I prepare goodies for tonight's festivities!  So, I thought I'd step away from it for a moment and share our great room buffet that has a few splashes of red added for Valentine's Day.

I started by adding a red shawl of mine as a runner.  I then filled a glass hurricane with red and clear beads and added a candle.  Of course, I then simply *had* to add shed antlers because they are *ohso* romantic, right?  LOL

And, who says you can't mix pinecones, seashells, orbs and "faux" rose petals together?

I loved the little glittery chapels that I found at Wal-Mart for Christmas so much that I just *had* to incorporate one into our little Valentine theme:

Doesn't it just look so cute, romantic (and, okay, goofy) nestled on more rose petals ... go ahead and sing it with me now "going to the Chapel, and we're gonna get mar-air-air-reed!"  (and, yes, that song will now be in your head all day long ... you're welcome!)

Lastly, I brought back my cream fleur-de-lis vase and added a few *Springy* florals to it.

One last shot:

Okay ... back in the kitchen I go to finish up chicken chili, yummy sausage dip, pigs in a blanket, and more calorie *infested* Superbowl treats (afterall, folks, they say that today is second only to Thanksgiving as far as most calories consumed)!  Please pass the TUMS ... and, again, "Let's Go, Giants!"

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Have fun tonight. I just pinned a healthy black bean, feta tomatoe dip. Going to roast my tomatoes right now. Follow my pin under Lori Kees.

  2. I just found a recipe on line for "Hot Corn Dip" that I'm going to make and take to daughter's tonight for their annual Super Bowl party. You can find the recipe here: thekitchenismyplayground.blogspot.

    I know you can't click on the above link...just type it in your browser and you should be able to find it as her 1/22/12 post.

    Happy Eating!

  3. Becca- It looks great! I love all your red touches and you have a wonderful way of putting things together. Happy Super Bowl Sunday- xo Diana

  4. I love all your red touches and darn you woman because now I am singing that Going to the Chapel song! I love that you mix sea items with other things. Just makes it special and guess who is going to be copying the heck out of you so I can have a bit of beloved beach in Minnesota! Have a great time tonight and GO GIANTS!!!! I love me some Manning boys.

  5. Loving that mix of things you already had with pops of red rose petals! It all works together perfectly and looks fabulous!

  6. Somethihg Simple...but so beautiful.

  7. Oh I have a ton of calorie stuff organized here for the game. I have lost 3 lbs on my diet and I am sure I will gain 20 lbs today. Not a good thing. Enjoy the game. Hugs, Marty

  8. Our kitchen is in a mess also! I love the mirror and of course everything else!

  9. Fabulous as always! This is my favorite blog! I'm so glad is starts with an "A" b/c its on the top of my blog list!
    Go Giants!

  10. Beautiful vignette! Love all the little red touches you've added. Thanks for sharing.

  11. This looks so pretty and romantic.
    Enjoy the game!


  12. Yes! Let's go Giants! : ) My hubby is actually at the Superbowl, Becca. I will be watching with my daughter, son-in-law and the baby. I love that chapel under the cloche. That is such a perfect piece to have under there.

  13. Have a great evening Becca! Lovely display here..looks perfect!

  14. Fun Valentine decor! Sadly the Giants ended my beloved Packers amazing, in spite of this, my family will be rooting for the Giants to win. They need to take it all the way to the Lombardi trophy! Have fun with your crew!

  15. The table looks lovely, Becca! Very romantic and cute! Love the fresh flowers!

    Sounds like you are having a feast tonight! Yum!


  16. Sounds yummy at your house! I don't do football, and didn't even know until yesterday who was playing in the superbowl, lol, but hubby thinks today is a holiday so I cooked him good stuff.

  17. Thanks a lot! I'm hearing that darn song over and over, Becca....
    Have fun at your par-tay. I'm sitting here semi-watching and reading blog posts. Now if this was COLLEGE ball, I'd be happier. LOL

  18. Love the little chapels under the cloches! Glad you could sneak away a bit from Super Bowl festivities! We are Giants fans and homemade pizzas and wings are on the menu! I heard antacids are the number one seller the day after the Super Bowl!!

  19. How cute!! Love all of your accessories. You are so creative!! Sounds like you were in for a fun night! And your party should have been rockin', as the Giants have just won the Superbowl!!!!!!!!

  20. I hope you guys had lots of fun! Everything looks wonderful!

  21. I know you had a great time! Love your decor tweaks!
    have a great day,

  22. I got a white mini church and I just love it so I don't think it's silly. It's hard to put the favorites away ;) As always, a perfect little vignette! Happy Valentine's Becca.

  23. Everything looks really pretty! I'm sure everyone had a great time, esp with the Giants win.


  24. Your buffet looks amazing!

    Oh how I wish I could have stopped by and had a piggie in a blanket!
    One of my most favorite things evaa as you say!

    My family absolutely hates cabbage and or saurkraut and cannot stand the smell in the house so I make stuffed peppers instead since my children have been old enough to complain!!!

    Hard to make something like that for just one person and though I have tried Stouffer's frozen version..... they are not the same!!!

    Sorry.... you got me started on a lil' tangent there, Becca!

    Your spread sounded amazing.


  25. I love your Valentine's touches - so clever to use a red throw as your runner, and the flowers are so springy (daisies are my favorite). I'd love it if you'd link up at my Show & Tell party, going on now @ the Delectable Home. Yea, Giants!

  26. Love your Valentine decorations! Think you've inspired me to red it up a bit in my house :)

  27. Very pretty, Becca. I hope you enjoyed your party!

  28. Oh, all of your touches are just so pretty, great ideas! Your munchies for SB Sunday sound like they were delicious!

  29. Beautiful vignette! :)

    I suppose your household is a happy one, being that the Giants won! My house was divided! LOL!

  30. What a lovely photos those are. Simple but sooo elegant and pretty. Love it, just stunning! :)
