Happy Valentine’s Day

As many of you know, I tend not to celebrate such events. Not because I’m Scrooge-like but because I dislike their commerciality. I try to make every day with my beloved special, not just one day a year.

This rather splendid (and massive) arrangement was in the Jumeirah Beach Hotel foyer, placed in front of an orchid and succulent garden, set atop a large piece of carved wood, which was also a statement piece.


To the rear was quite possibly the largest bunch of red roses I have ever seen – totally OTT!

If my beloved husband happens to read this, I’ll be more than happy with him attempting to make less or no mess today.
