Ready for love

Fresh flowers are fast becoming a favourite.

The love associated with Valentine’s Day was everywhere at Cave Shepherd today.

With all the red and white adorning the department store and the traffic of people passing through buying chocolates, perfumes, teddy bears and other Valentine’s Day favourites, one could literally feel the love.

But nowhere was it more evident than on the top floor, where there were several “attractions” for lovers.

If love could be described by a fragrance, it would be that of the aromatic scents of the fresh flowers on display; or the smell of the creatively designed and very tasty cup cakes made by 15 year-old Dominic Jones of the Learning Centre; or perhaps the aroma of a flavourful Valentine’s night dinner, accompanied by a tasty liquor.

All these elements were present this afternoon and customers got the opportunity to engage in each. They were able to sample food, made on the spot, by chefs of the television show Five Minute Meals and cocktails made by mixologists from In Da Mix.

Producer of the shows, Darin Holder, told Barbados TODAY the demonstrations were a way to show people some of the simple ways they could prepare a delicious meal for a special person on that night and have an intimate evening with them instead of engaging in all the hassle associated with February 14.

Valentine’s Day events continue tomorrow when Richard Stoute and Teen Talent contestants perform live in store. (KC)††
