Romantic Table for Two

Valentine’s day is coming and I decided to host this blog hop around a romantic table for two.  I believe that staying home for Valentine’s day is one of the most romantic things you can do, just the two of you, enjoying one another with no pesky servers or a bill at the end of the dinner!  It is crystal clear to me after almost 37 years of marriage that I am more in love with my husband today than ever.  I selected crystal as the theme for my table.

I thought I had my table all planned out, crystal, a little silver and then I would add red or white roses.  I looked at my table and thought that wasn’t going to do it, this table needed an explosion of color!  Off to pick up flowers in all of the colors I could find!

I just picked up several mixed bouquets at the grocery store and arranged them in a variety of my crystal vases and bud vases.  Romantic Dinner For Two Tablescape

My place settings are mirrored chargers that have a lovely ring of rhinestones in them even though you can’t see those.  I topped those with Miss America pattern dinner plates, my often used silver salad plates and topped those with the same depression glass dessert plates.  Romantic Dinner For Two Tablescape

I used a variety of stemware, silver goblets from Home Goods, Waterford Champagne flutes and Bohemian crystal water glasses.  A crystal candy dish sits by filled with what else?  Kisses!  But the magic really happens when the sun sets and the candles are lit!  Romantic Dinner For Two Tablescape

  2. Chloe, your crystal and silver table is so gorgeous, but the explosion of color adds the perfect element. The crystal just sparkles and exudes romance and then once the candles are lit, it becomes magical! I know you and your husband will enjoy sitting down here for a lovely meal at home! Thanks once again for being a fabulous hostess for the Table for Two Blog Hop. It has been a pleasure to be in the company of so many talented ladies!

  3. Chloe, I needed a little flower therapy this morning for the January blues. I was picking up flowers yesterday at the grocery store and I love the variety that you’ve added to your table. Your assortment of sparkling crystal and silver is stunning but the addition of the bouquets by candlelight takes your table over the top! I don’t think we’ve ever dined just by glow of the candles either. Thanks for organizing the blog hop this week and inviting this dishaholic along for the fun. ♥

  4. Chloe, you had be at silver and crystal. Two of my favorite things and you can’t have too much. I love how the burst of color in your flowers pops out against the sparkle and reflection of the crystal and silver. We try to eat in the dining room every Saturday night with the chandelier dimmed and the candles lit. It really does create a sense of quiet and no distractions. Thank you for once again hosting a fabulous tablescape blog hop.
