Valentine’s Table in Red and Gold
Valentine’s Table in Red and Gold
For a February dinner, a Valentine’s table in red and gold was the perfect way to go. A bare tabletop was dressed with simple red placemats. Gold dinner plates were topped with red salad plates and finished off with a Depression Glass dessert plate. The Depression Glass pattern is Miss America, all of which have been collected over the years by my mother and handed down to me.
This table isn’t fussy in any way, rather simple, somewhat stark with a modern look.
Gold flatware from West Elm is the perfect choice for styling a table in gold and red. Red napkins were rolled and tied with gold ribbons and tucked into gold paint dipped wine goblets.
Each dessert plate was topped with a Ferrero Rocher “grand”. Inside this golden foil is a golden plastic sphere holding a hollow chocolate sphere with hazelnut pieces in the chocolate and two Ferrero Rocher chocolates inside. Tea lights set in gold accented votive cups will add evening ambiance.
Embroidery hoops were spray painted gold and fashioned into spheres. Red glittery styrofoam hearts were used to cover the screws on the embroidery hoops. Red glass gems were scattered on the tabletop beneath the three spheres.
Chloe, I love the modern feel of this table. It is dramatic, but very elegant! Red and gold are so classic, always lending an air of formality. The embroidery hoops are genius!
Thank you so much Pam, it is so different for me, but styling tables year after year, you have to mix things up, right?
Chloe, this is gorgeous. May have to try to copy this. Love the embroidery hoop idea.
Thank you so much Gayle, this is a really easy and simple table. I have really gotten in the habit of using plain dinner plates and mixing up the look with different salad plates. I just picked up some great new placemats on sale at Pier One this week, more tablescapes will be coming! Look for my tea party post this coming Wednesday, I am really happy with how it turned out. How did your peacock table turn out?
I thought I sent you a picture. Will send one now by e-mail. g
Beautiful Chloe…love the “ornament” and the dramatic red and gold is perfect for Valentine’s. Another lovely and inspiring tablescape my friend.
Thank you so much Kari! I love to have a gift or favor for guests, and the chocolates are quite impressive!
Oh so glam Chloe, yes the painted embroidery hoops are genius! Very sexy and dramatic table!
Thank you so much Jenna, very different from what I usually do. Stay tuned for the tea party that will post next Wednesday, much more my usual style!
Love the embroidery hoop idea, must try this, looks like you only used 3 for each?
Thank you so much Linda! The hoops are so easy. yes, I used 3 single hoops for each of my orbs. I picked them up at Walmart for a bargain price. I used just a tiny dot of hot glue where they touch one another to make them sturdier. Thanks so much for your comment, I LOVE hearing from my readers!
Beautiful Chloe, totally unexpected touches. It just proves that red and gold are not suitable just for Christmas.
What a gorgeous table setting for Valentines, stunning red color.
I would like to invite you to share your blog on my party #omhgff
Have a lovely week!
Wow that is beautiful. Loving the red on your table. It just sucks you right in. Just gorgeous.
