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.
