A Beautiful Valentine’s Day Table For Two
Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I always enjoy our time together. Can you believe that February is right around the corner and it’s almost time for Valentine’s Day? It seems like it was just Christmas. However, I do love that we have a holiday to celebrate those that we love. What are some of your Valentine’s Day Traditions? Do you make a special dinner? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your Special Valentine without any crowds? I decorated a Beautiful Valentine’s Day Table For Two. Come on, I’ll show you.
The Place Settings
Valentine’s Day dinner feels a bit more special, right? Like there should be white linens-so that it exactly what I did. I started by spreading the table with a lovely white tablecloth. I am using my gold chargers for the base of the place setting. I topped it with my Royal Albert Country Roses dinner plates and salad plates. They are fine china with a gorgeous gold rim and beautiful roses. Perfect for Valentine’s Day. Once again, I am using my now vintage silverware. They were not vintage when I got them for a wedding present. Now the silverware and I are both a bit vintage. Sigh. I tied my silver with the loveliest burgundy velvet ribbon.
Step 1: Chargers
Step 2: Dinner Plates
Step 3: Salad Plates
Step 4: Silverware tied with Ribbon
I tucked the sweetest vintage Valentine tag into a brass place card holder. I just love the glassware from Arte Italica. It is gorgeous. It has the loveliest gold rim and design. I’m using the champagne flute and compote for this tablescape.
Step 5: Champagne Flutes Step 6: Compotes
Step 7: Add the centerpiece.
For the centerpiece, I chose to do something a bit different instead of the typical flower bouquet. I had these two adorable little urns that I absolutely adored, but I just didn’t know what I was going to do with them until I came up with this idea. I will be sharing this Valentine craft next week, so be sure to stop back by. I put the topiaries on vintage books to add height and interest to the table. I love these vintage silver bird salt and pepper shaker. I thought that they were the perfect “Love Birds” for a Valentine Table.
Step 8: Light the candles.
I added my crystal candlesticks– candle light adds so much romance. I also had this super cute heart garland. I draped it around the centerpiece to add a bit of whimsy.
I decorated the mantle as well. I made this beautiful heart wreath, you can see how, here. I added my collection of vintage brass candlesticks, vintage books, a cute little cupid and one of my favorite busts.iv id=”fd-form-61855eb8db5bc2b4fb308994″>
