Leap Day Celebration


It happens only every four years! 


Leap Day
 



Here's a cheerful way to celebrate the extra day we've been given this year.





This whimsical fabric can be found at your local fabric store. The frogs represent the leap in "Leap Day". The ladybugs are a sweet compliment to the outdoor theme.   Upon this table for two, I positioned the  "Love Frog" glitter globe I presented to my husband with his candy on Valentines Day and told him "I toad-i-ly love you!"  He  complimented the table perfectly. (The frog that is!)



Ladybugs want to be part of the fun too!





The flowers complimented the table and the outdoor venue.  
This table looked glorious outside.


Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE red glassware.  
Actually I love all colored glassware.

So what should I serve for lunch?  Any ideas?   
Please don't say "frogs legs".  I couldn't do that!

I'm thinking a bacon, basil and tomato sandwich with a delicious salad of artisan greens, fruits and nuts,  or a pasta salad with a kick, accompanied by my new favorite beverage Sanpelagrino Limonata spiked with strawberries! In the sherbet glasses I believe lemon sorbet topped with mixed berries would be a refreshing conclusion to the lunch.

If you haven't seen this movie and you love Rom-Coms like I do, you must view this movie before or on February 29th.

Leap Year (2010) - Anna Brady plans to travel to Dublin, Ireland to propose to her boyfriend Jeremy on February 29, leap day, because, according to Irish tradition, a man who receives a marriage proposal on a leap day must accept it.:



Happy Leap Year Everyone!
