We always spend Valentine’s day at home. With no desire to try to get reservations at a coveted restaurant, deal with overworked servers or deal with the current pandemic, home is fine for a Valentine’s dinner.

Lay out two layers of white kraft or drawing paper across your table. I like to insure that my paint will not soak through onto my tabletop.
Apple Barrel bright red paint from Plaid was the perfect choice to make a custom X and O table runner. You can paint X’s and O’s or can add heart shapes to your runner to customize it. Set it aside and let your the paint dry.
The next thing I did was to take some grocery store roses, clean the stems of leaves and thorns. I then took some narrow Valentine’s ribbon and tied them to each stem.
I took the ribbons and hung the roses from my chandelier over my table.
Time to set the table! I know they look gold, but the chargers I used are silver. The china is a combination of Kate Spade Larabee Dot and Kate Spade Rutherford Circle Red salad plate.
Red Cowgirl Lace flatware added more red to the fun tabletop.
White champagne flutes and simple crystal water glasses rounded out the place settings. Three white vases hold red roses reaching up toward the roses that are hanging down.
All in all, I think this will be a lovely table to sit down to a perfect quiet dinner for two come February 14th!
I am looking forward to hosting another Valentine’s Tablescape Blog Hop on February 2nd. There will be so many amazing bloggers taking part! We will see you then!
