Welcome to my personal blog page…
My name is Teri Valentina, a Miami native with a zest for life that is unexplainable. I love to live in the moment, plan for the future, and leave the past in the past. I enjoy the company of positive people and I’m constantly learning from others and educating myself. I love dancing, reading business books, dining out, and drinking champagne.
I love entertaining family and friends in my humble abode which has now been christened, Casa Valentina, by those who have frequented my home on many occasions. I collect vintage glassware, crystal, and barware which is usually brought out during many of my hostessing gatherings. I enjoy cooking and creating amazing tablescapes with food, flowers, and drinks.
I have traveled to over 60 different countries, I’ve experienced all the distinct customs and cultures which I tend to incorporate in many of my themed parties. I used to be a restaurateur, so the hostessing comes easy to me since I enjoy having company over. I prefer the small company of good friends, and not the big parties I once used to host. The more intimate the better.
If I’m not home entertaining, you’ll find me dining out at least 5 times a week. I love to try different menu items paired with unique bottles of champagne or wine. I enjoy the simple pleasures of life and I believe they don’t have to be costly to be amazing. I also love taking care of my rose and orchid garden in the mornings while sipping a nice cup of hot coffee.
I believe we need to live our lives to the fullest.
Cheers to a new journey together!
