Do you know how to host the perfect Valentines dinner for your sweetheart? I think I do, and I will show you how I do it. Do you have any idea who my special sweetheart is? I hope you will be as excited as I am to see who will fill the empty chair for dinner!

For this hound, the party favors and accessories are almost as important as the meal itself! Some people may think I have gone a bit overboard with all my stuff, but I like it that way! I want my dining room to scream Valentines love!
Decorate your table with a festive tablecloth, some bling, fun dishes for the holiday, and don’t forget to get your sweetheart a nicely wrapped gift! Remember…giving is better than receiving.
Everyone says food is the way to a man’s heart, and I believe it applies to dogs as well as humans. For a super tasty, easy dish that tastes homemade, I turn to Merrick Sweetheart Stew!
When you serve the Merrick limited edition, grain free, Sweetheart Stew, you can see the chunks of chicken, sweet potatoes, and apples in a fine gravy…yum!
Doesn’t the stew look delicious in the heart shaped dinnerware? Be honest, not only any man, but any woman would love to dive into this meal!
A good hostess always tastes the meal before serving it to any guests. One must be certain it is tasty enough! Try not to get too much gravy in your beard furs.
My verdict is a #tongueoutTuesday deliciousness! The Sweetheart Stew will make the perfect Valentines dinner for my sweetheart! Now it would be 5pm and time for my secret sweetheart to arrive!
You may have guessed, or maybe not. Bentley from Barking from the Bayou is my main squeeze! We are celebrating a week early as he couldn’t make it to my place on Valentine’s Day. He looks so handsome in his fancy, festive bow tie!
I whispered to him that I love him (blush, blush), and he could go ahead and dig in! He seems to be feeling a bit shy! Do you think you will be serving Sweetheart Stew to your love for a Valentines dinner?
*A special thank you to Julie for helping bring Bentley to the table. We couldn’t have gotten him here without her help! Check out her work! She does tons of fun stuff with photos and photography!

Oh, Emma, you are so festive. I bet you had to help your mom so very much to get ready for your date with Bentley. The Sweetheart Stew looks scrumptious! XOXO, Sparkle.
I love a good party, even for two, and good food is so important!
oh you are such a fabulous pawty planner… I sadly have no sweetheart, butt maybe I can invite my yellow monster for lunch? do you know what yellow monsters like the most?
You are young and can still flirt with all the girls.

Not sure what it says about me when dogs put together a better Valentine’s spread than I do.
Maybe have Penny help you out?
What a beautiful table Emma! Well done!
Thank you. I love setting up for festive occasions.
Can Roxy and Torrey come too? They’ll find some boy dogs to bring.
I have plenty of food, but they will have to use different plates as I only have two of the heart ones.
Jan K says
We’re so happy to see Bentley there, and aren’t you two such a cute couple! Emma, what a great girlfriend you are, that is quite the spread you put on for him!
We don’t get together often, so I want it to be special when we do.
M. K. Clinton says

I’ll have to get myself a can of this!
You sure do! Hurry before they run out!
The Army of Four says
Oh, what a wonderful idea! Maggie and I are both rather sweet on a boy we often see out on our walks. Maybe this would be the ticket to his heart!
I bet it would win him over!
I would love to be your sweetheart!!! You sure know how to set up a great dinner!!! 😉
I love hosting fancy parties with good food.
