Hello and welcome to my blog. If you are here for the first time, I invite you to take the time to browse around a bit.
With Valentine's day right around the corner, it is time to start thinking about celebrating the day with your sweetie. If you are planning to stay in this year, then this "Romantic Table For Two" blog hop is for you. Today, I am happy to be joining 15 talented bloggers that are sharing beautiful and creative ideas for putting together love-filled tablescape for two for Celebrate & Decorate's Romantic Table For Two blog hop hosted by Chloe Crabtree. I will have all the links listed at the bottom of my post. The blog hop will run through Thursday of this week.
My husband and I love our nights out, but I think nights in can be so much more romantic. Especially because you have total creative control of the meal and the dinner table. And what better way to show your significant other that thy are special.
When I think of a romantic dinner for two, an intimate table setting comes to mind. I like to choose decorations and accent pieces that have special meaning for the two of us, such as favorite colors, flowers and food. I also prefer to choose a quiet and cozy spot to set up our romantic dinner table. Lighting is also key for giving a room a romantic ambiance. Consider adding candles to your table as well as dimming the lights in the room.
I prefer classic neutrals when I want to achieve an elegant look. I also think that a white tablecloth gives a table a fine dining appearance.
Use cloth napkins in coordinating colors. Don't forget to add a floral or ornate napkin ring for dded effect.
The tea set is Classic White by Lenox.
For my place setting I used a Lenox Federal Gold dinner plate and placed a vintage Royal Doulton Luncheon Plate on top. I then placed a purple etched glass bullion soup bowl on top of my luncheon plate to complete my table setting. Vintage etched glass goblets are paired with modern stemware by Patina Vie adorned with pink and gold designs. The gold flatware is from Target.
Delicate accessories add a touch of romance while a classic Lenox accent plate add modern elegance.
Here is a little video my husband filmed of the table I created.
A special thanks to Chloe for putting this blog hop together.
Thank you all for visiting. I hope we have inspired you to create your own Romantic Table For Two. We hope you have a lovely and romantic Valentine's Day...
