It may be a be late for your special dinner......But dont forget the presentation. A special meal should be a feast for all the senses, and a little effort is always nice. How about using some of the early spring blossoms like rose petals...a carpet of pink! The leaves of bulb plants such as daff's can be cut and laid out to act as table places. Theres still plenty of cones around that can add an extra dimension to any place setting (but warm the beasties out first) If you really want to go for it, what about carving a loving spoon? or a double ended spoon? The Ladies love that kind of thing...so I've been told!
Before critisising another, first walk a mile in thier shoe's...Then if they take exception, your a mile away, and they can't chase you.
