Romantic Table For Two Blog Hop

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...


Janet

  2. Janet, oh, so pretty, with the soft mix of lavender, white, pink and gold. Talk about creative control - that's stunning! I don't know if you got a typical bargain, but the Target flatware looks really high-end, perfect detail to the overall look.

    1. Hello Rita,

      Thanks so much. I appreciate your visit and your lovely comment.

      I always try to get the best deals on my china and flatware. I bought the gold flatware in Target when they had 20% off. It does look high-end.

      Have a wonderful week.

The busts, china, crystal, flowers, the gorgeous little cakes are fabulous and then I notice in one picture that you have a chandelier that adds the perfect ambiance to the table. Gorgeous.

  18. Such a dreamy and romantic table! I really like how you varied the heights of the various centerpieces you placed around the table - and aren't table-for-twos great for that?! I love "side-pieces" versus centerpieces and the fabulous bust with the pearls is an excellent choice for this table. Your colour palette is soft and pretty and adds so much to the romantic vibe. Love those floral napkin rings which coordinate well with the fresh flowers. So much fun participating in this blog hop with you!

The gold flatware adds more elegance (I can't believe that was a Target find). Your setting definitely speaks of love and romance. I have certainly enjoyed blog hopping with you this week!
