Valentines Day menu for Russian Tea Room

I spent most of January Desperately seeking ❤️ Valentines ideas for THE RUSSIAN TEA ROOM menu cover.
The usual tearing of hair...
I studied RTR's Valentine menu. Yum.
Do I paint RTR scallops?
I looked at old PB Valentines posts
I went out looking for ideas and inspiration trying not to eat🍫😳

Look at this adorable et pas cher china at Monoprix❤️
RTR suggested something with roses🌹 Hmm...
Finally 6-7 heart/roses❤️🌹sketches. Ta Da The response: No, we don't like those and no, we don't have any suggestions but we know you will come up with something wonderful😳
Maybe the RTR facade like you did before(yoo hoo this was 10+ years ago). Wha'? More hair tearing.
Where Did I find  this photo of❤️ balloons in Milan and who did it?
Ta Da. We LOVE ❤️it. YAY But the boss isn't sure about the taxi🚖.
I did a poll on Instagram. The Taxi won🚖 YES! Isn't the creative process wonderful? If you go to the RUSSIAN TEA ROOM for St Valentines say "Parisbreakfast sent me" Maybe you'll get an extra glass of Champagne 🥂🍾🙏🏻
