National Food Holidays and Featured Tablescape: February 2014

This Month's Tablescape.........

Photo by
This month's featured tablescape by lipstikevents welcomes Valentines Day with a full swing. It is not the typical dining tablescape we usually feature, however, we found this charming yet elegant display of Valentine treats deserved some special attention. The eye catching colors of red, pink, and white blend together to create a flavorfully festive holiday buffet. The ever popular apothecary jars filled with candies serves as both decoration and digging into. The main displays of Valentine desserts such as cookies, cakes, macaroons, trifles, and cupcakes, are all symmetrically placed to center around a refreshing red punch as well as creating a display that is most inviting.

February's Announcements:

Dear Readers,
We have already made to the second moth of 2014. We hope you all have a wonderful New Year. We have been very busy lining up a full schedule for this year and since it has taken us longer than we thought, things may be slow yet steady. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your emails and comments. We are backed up with test kitchen recipe submissions and will get to work posting those throughout the year. We have had some emails regarding missing posts and photos displayed with no way to find the recipe. We are currently updating older posts with new photos and better instruction and apologize for any inconvenience. We hope to have these updated as soon as possible. This month we will be featuring cookbook author Mrs. 101, Stephanie Ashcraft as well as post some of her recipes. Mrs. 101 will also be hosting one of two giveaways we are presenting this month as a special gift to our readers. So stay tuned for upcoming February schedule coming soon!

Thank You,

Saltbox House
