A Paris Themed Valentine’s Dinner

My husband loves Paris, I mean he really LOVES Paris.  His dream is to live there for an entire summer someday.  This led me to this great idea for New Year’s Eve.  I know, we were talking about Valentine’s, but we got invited to that wonderful party for New Year’s Eve, so I figured I would need to change it up and move my plans to Valentine’s Day. Shhh, don’t tell him about this because I want to pull this off as a surprise!  A Parisian themed Valentine's Dinner This idea all began when I saw a lighted Eiffel Tower for yard decor at Home Depot a couple of Christmases ago.  I really wanted it, not for any particular party, but I wanted it!  I couldn’t justify the price or even the space it would take for storage, so I just let it go.  This past December I saw a smaller, and actually prettier lighted Eiffel Tower at Michaels.  I had my handy 50% off coupon, the price wasn’t too bad, and the box was actually pretty small.  I went home with my trophy!

A Paris themed Valentine's Dinner for Two

I was planning this pretty silver and white wintery Paris themed New Year’s Eve and then the big party invitation arrived, so switch to Valentine’s day!  I changed it up and this will be our Valentine’s dinner with the table all set in red and white and silver.  Valentines-Day-Red-Glitter-Champagne-Bottle

I added some puffy little hearts to the Eiffel Tower, and I have glittered a bottle of Champagne in red.  The table will be set like this with a silver and white tablecloth, silver sequined placemats, red chargers, white and silver dinner plates with matching bread plates and mercury glass-looking salad plates.  Valentine-Dinner-in-Paris

Even in Florida it can get a little cool in the evening, so I think tucking the fur throws on the chairs will add a little luxurious touch.  Even though I am not the Paris lover, I fell rather hard for these Eiffel Tower Champagne flutes from Z Gallerie.  Valentines-Day-Eiffel-Tower-Champagne-FlutesI think I will use this frame on the table and perhaps set the food service platters inside of it.  This is one of these great Ikea Ung Drill frames.  I have used it so many times in so many different ways, but I painted it silver for my Winter Wonderland tablescape and was so happy with how it looks in silver, I was anxious to use it again.  It dresses up a table so much.  I had this little Eiffel Tower which used to house a clock.  I think I will fill it with red roses for the dinner.

A-Paris-themed-Valentines-DinnerI am looking forward to this dinner and I know my husband will love it.  I am planning on cooking coq au vin, asparagus, serving a light salad and croissants with a yummy crepe for dessert.  What would be your ideal Valentine’s Day?

    This is just beautiful. Love the Champagne bottle.

    1. Thanks Gayle! I even coated that bottle enough with clear sealer that the glitter is all staying on! I have it hidden in the back of the refrigerator hoping he doesn’t see it before the dinner!

  2. Wow oh wow! This table is BEAUTIFUL>>> Love all the creative things you did. Glittering the bottle was so creative and it turned out so stunning. Plate stack and all accessorizing is wonderful…. Valerie

    1. Thanks Kim! I know I splurged on the champagne flutes, but I have some more plans in store for them too!

  5. Love your Eiffel tower! Makes me want one. I would have never thought to add glitter to a bottle of wine or champagne, how clever! I think the fur throws would be a wonderful addition and your Eiffel tower glasses are amazing! Thanks for sharing.

  6. The Paris party is such a great idea. Love that tower!

  7. I love the elegance of your table and the Paris theme. The Eiffel tower was a great find and I like how you accented it with the lights and hearts. Very romantic!

  9. Chloe, your table is beautiful and you have used so many creative ideas! Love that Eiffel Tower, especially, with the addition of the hearts. Hope your Valentine’s Day is as lovely, as your table!!

  10. Oh how pretty and so romantic. I’m wondering if Michael’s still has that Eiffel Tower. It’s so pretty, and those stems are to die for. I love that you glittered the Champagne bottle. So many great ideas on this table. The silver frame is another idea I’m going to borrow some time. Thanks so much for linking this to my party.

  11. I do like your Eiffel tower. For whatever reason I decided I wanted a shocking pink Eiffel tower last year. I did find a large black one at Goodwill in January that I had intended on spray painting in the spring. But now I am thinking that maybe it should be left black after seeing yours. The lights on your tower really make it pop on this “Paris” themed tablescape. Very nice!

    1. Thanks so much Candy, I have seen pink ones before, usually flat cardboard ones, but how fun would they be for a pink Paris party, with pink French poodles?

  12. Hi Chloe
    Hope you had a great weekend! Still trying to figure out what to do for our romantic Valentine dinner with my hubby, he suggested we go out for dinner but with so much snow here and freezing weather I’d rather stay home! and surprise him! I was a home sense here in Toronto and I saw a beautiful Eiffel tower but is was huge and solid anyway too heavy so I decided to by pass it! You have given so many wonderful ideas!Will post pictures when I’m done. Happy Valentine’s.

    1. Thanks Liz! I never want to go out on Valentine’s Day, it is always too crowded and service isn’t its best. I look forward to seeing your pictures!

  13. Love this! I am a Paris lover also. I wanted that Eiffel Tower but don’t have the space to store it! I have lots of little Eiffel Towers!
    hugs,
    Linda

    1. Thanks for getting in touch, Linda! I am heading over to A La Carte to check out all your Eiffel Towers!

  14. How fabulous Chloe! He is going to love it and your French menu, oh la la!

  15. I should start making room now because if I see an Eiffel Tower like this I am going to buy it. What a fabulous and romantic setting!

    1. I keep thinking I should sell it, because really, how many times will I use this? Another little voice in my head keeps telling me to hang onto it!

  16. A truly beautiful table. I love everything. The glittered bottle is very striking. Love the frame that you have used. Gorgeous!

  17. Gorgeous and very elegant! Your Eiffel Tower is lovely, as are those goblets. Beautiful!

    1. Thank you Bev! I am trying to figure out if I should keep that Eiffel Tower or sell it at a yard sale! I know I will be sorry if I part with it!
