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?
