    Our Dining Room here at Oakmont is opening up tomorrow but I don't know if it will be like it was before COVID 19-- The attached picture is Pre COVID VALENTINE'S DAY.JPG

    We don't decorate our dining room table. Will wait until we both get the vaccines before we even "think" about going out for breakfast or dinner. In prior years, I'd buy her some roses and a nice card, but not this year. Way to cold outside (4 degrees). However, will send her a card on her iPhone.

    It will look the same as any other table.

    We don’t even have a table, so that is an easy answer. Actually, we do have a little old glass and metal table that one of the renters left a few years back , when they moved out of the house next door.
    Bobby brought it home for me, and I used it outside as a gardening table.
    Now, it is inside and even in the kitchen, but that is where my kale, garlic, and lentil sprouts are growing, and that it what it is going to continue to look like, at least until summer.
    The weather here is cold and ice warnings, so we are not going to venture out for Valentine’s Day this year.

    I've always social-distanced on Valentine's Day, so this year will be no different than any other.

    Oh, I've been briefly married and rarely dated throughout my life.

    Not a big deal. Just nothing I was motivated to go out of my way to do.

    Celebrating it or not, doesn't your Assisted Living place decorate for all holidays and special days (like Valentines Day)? I would think there are those living there that wouldn't care, one way or the other, whether the dining area was decorated or not.

    We use our Fireplace Hearth as a display area for St. Valentines and other dates.

    Then, you must live among exceptionally high spirited folks, when it comes to holidays and/or special days. There are those on this forum that don't celebrate certain holidays or special days. Heck, my BIL (wife's brother) is one of those.

    I'm very glad to hear that all of the residents where you live, do enjoy the decorations and the staff does it.
