My 6 years old daughter, together with her friends, asked me for some kind of Valentine’s day celebration.
The style of this party goes back to the original spirit of Valentine. We celebrate the myth of courtly love – l’amour courtois – an European expression of pure love and admiration that flourished in medieval times. Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours, Mr. Big would say today. This spirit is embodied in a simple phrase: “You are sweet”. As in the ancient times, in this party lovers offer the purest expression of their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and writing greeting cards. These are the three main elements of the dessert table. Courtly love is an iconic message, expressed in all party elements. The central paper rose, embodied in a classic framework, reinforces the romantic texture, "in the contemplation of the mind and the affection of the heart".
