A small gathering at my house for Valentine's Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I was hostess to a small gathering of loved ones. The menu was delicious - terrine de foie gras (a gift from Pierre now at Benoit), bucatini with black truffles and butter, garden greens and herb salad, and buttermilk panna cotta with passion fruit and heart-shaped cookies - chocolate, ginger, and lemon-sugar. We all really enjoyed ourselves.

Here's an overview of the table - white crispy linens, big pink M monograms on the napkins, rosy pink glassware, pink luster plates and silver cups with more orchids.
