Valentine’s Table on the Porch

Valentine’s Table

I am dreaming about a quiet dinner for two for Valentine’s Day, oh, who is kidding, I dream about any quiet dinner for two these days!  Actually I think my little granddaughters would appreciate a Valentine’s table, I just will do it with a little more casual feel.

Here in Florida the weather is rarely so cold that we can’t dine on the front porch.  Our wrap around front porch is one of our favorite places to spend time.  I absolutely LOVE these plates.  I got them many, many years ago at the outlets in Reading, Pennsylvania.  

It didn’t seem like these rose decorated plates needed much embellishment to communicate the idea of Valentine’s day other than some additional roses.

I topped my dinner plates with pretty embossed heart shaped salad plates and tied a red satin ribbon around my pink napkins.

The grocery store roses in pink, red and lavender were really all of the decoration my table needed, AND had room for.  Gold colored flatware from West Elm seemed like the perfect metallic to add to my table styling.

I went a little fun with these glitter heart wine glasses, a Home Goods discovery!

I love all of the textures accented with my white pierced candle trays from Ikea that I used as chargers.

Do you set a special table for Valentine’s Day?  What about just for a special dinner for two?

  3. You’re right, Chloe, those plates need very little embellishment – they’re knockouts! But the heart plates you added for simple charm are perfect, and just a lush bow such as you’ve done on the napkin really works. This is a great mix of pink and red hues (not all of them work like this), and to say I’m just a little jealous over porch sitting in February is an understatement.

  18. Such a fantastic setting for a romantic Valentine’s meal and definitely one that wouldn’t be happening in our neck of the woods which makes it all the more dreamy to me! Beautiful roses make the perfect centerpiece for Valentine’s and coordinate wonderfully with those gorgeous plates – love the rose one and the heart shaped one! The heart-swirls on the stemware fit right in and that golden flatware adds a touch of drama. Using those lace-look candle plates as chargers is the “icing on the cake” – so pretty!
    As always, Chloe you’ve done an outstanding job at putting together another fun blog hop for us to participate in and enjoy – thank you so very much for all your efforts! I’m sure it takes a lot of organization and planning which is much appreciated. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your hubby!

  19. Sweet Chloe, this table is absolutely beautiful! Those floral plates are so pretty, and the red bows as napkin rings add such a lovely touch. I’m a little jealous that you have nice weather to be able to dine outside. Our weather in Oklahoma has been terribly cold! I have been traveling with my hubby this week for work, and we are stranded in Arkansas because there is an ice storm in Oklahoma. Hopefully, we will get to go home tomorrow! Thanks again, for allowing me to be a part of your blog hop. I am so grateful to be a part of your group. Take care, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

  23. Chloe, this is gorgeous, as is the setting! I love the combination of the red, pink and mauve (the mauve is always my favorite) roses – so striking and you’re absolutely right, that’s all the table needed! Your dinnerware is also just perfect for the season without being over the top. Love this!
