Family Valentine's Day Party

Hello friends!
For Valentine's day, our family had a formal party. I wanted to share a few pictures from the special evening with you. 
The Decorations   

The Food
 Beef Strip Steaks
Broccoli Soup
Chocolate Lasagna
Cherry Cream Cheesecake 

We also had potatoes and salad with the candlelight dinner meal. Actually, one light was on so it wasn't completely a candlelit dinner.   (I know the menu has rolls on it, but we didn't have them.) For dessert, Sarah made chocolate lasagna, (it's one of the best bad you all couldn't have tried it ;)  )  and mommy made Cherry Cream Cheesecake, because it's my daddy's favorite. (It's another one of the best desserts.  :) Oh, and since the fair is going on right now, we also had Apple Pie as a side choice of dessert. I entered the apple pie in the fair. We may or may not have indulged ourselves with too many sweets that evening.   ;) But it's was a special occasion. Very special.  :D

Did you have a special Valentine's day? Leave a comment below. I would love to hear what you and your family did! :D 

Your friend and sister in the Lord,
1 John 4:9-11
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.


  1. such a nice valentine's evening you had. the food looks delicious.

  2. This was really cute! You did such a good job!

  3. So sweet. This is the first years in years we didn't do a dinner like this. I started doing a candle lit dinner for our family 10 years ago. We had other obligations that fell on the day and several on days before that prevented it. I sure did miss it. Looks like you all had a wonderful time of love and fellowship.

  4. My dear Ashley, what a lovely Valentine's celebration! The food has my mouth watering :)

    For Valentine's my husband, son, and I took off for a little getaway for 5 days - it was quite the blessing and lots of fun. Thank you so much for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs to you!

  5. Oh my, everything looked so delicious, and of course everything tastes better in candlelight! All the decorations and effort went for the meal made it very special indeed. I haven't had cherry cheesecake in a while, yours looks delicious! :) Have a great day!

  6. Oh, how pretty it all was! Thank you so much for sharing it here with all of us. You are so sweet and precious...thankful to know you, Ashley!

  7. That is fantastic! Everything looks beautiful. Your family has decorated so nicely! Delicious looing meal too. We did a Valentine's party but it wasn't nearly as flash!! :) Than you for sharing the photos.

  8. What a lovely wonderful Valentine's Day for you and the Spies family. Wow, what great food and beautiful decorations. Tell Cindy she planned and executed a super celebration (I feel certain she got some help from you girls.) I agree with Bonnie, and Cheryl, Thanks for Sharing. Luv

  9. Ashley,
    What a lovely idea to celebrate Valentine's Day! Many years ago, on Valentine's Day I made a heart shaped meat loaf, pink mashed potatoes and a heart shaped cake for dessert for my family. Can't remember what vegetables I served or if I even tied the veggies into the Valentine's theme but it was fun! Everything looks wonderful!

    1. Hello!
