4 ways to create a romantic & irresistible Valentine’s Day tablescape
Valentine’s Day is a heart-shaped opportunity for a romantic dinner out, but if you’re skipping the hustle and bustle of your favorite restaurant (or didn’t make a reservation in time), you can do it yourself in glorious style right at home. In addition to your delightful dinner, you’ll want to fashion an incredible Valentine’s Day table setting. Nothing quite says love like the color red. For an unmistakable appeal to the heart, set your table with shades of pink and red to create a look worthy of the holiday. Mix in some other hues to make it a classy table setting that’s unique, feminine and full of lust. By implementing a few staples like a floral centerpiece, a unique tablecloth and stand out charger plates, you’ll have a romantic tablescape in no time!
Roses take the spotlight for Valentine’s Day table decorations. Multiple bundles of roses, each set in their own white vase, are placed next to one another in a swirl shape to give the illusion of a continuous swatch of roses, which looks incredible. Also, make sure the main floral centerpiece doesn’t prohibit the diners from making eye contact, which is an important factor to consider for your Valentine’s Day tablescape. There are taller plants at each end, plus tall candles, but they add more visual interest without impeding romance. We also love have a tall serving platter with white chocolate-dipped berries at one end, right next to a bottle of wine. Their positioning leaves the center view clear for plenty of conversation.
Continuing the floral theme, the tablecloth here is an ivory satin and pale rose pink rosette textured runner so it looks like it’s been strewn with rose petals. Bonus: You get the petal look without having to clean up one stray bit when your dinner is complete.
You really cannot have “too much” floral as far as Valentine’s Day table decorations go. We’ve chosen glass charger plates that also feature a floral motif. The soft pink also ties in perfectly with the rosette runner. This keeps the Valentine’s Day table setting from becoming totally monochromatic, but still contrasts with the rest of the table setting perfectly.
Also, for Valentine’s Day table setting ideas, there are a few color schemes to consider. Various shades of pink are always a solid choice, but don’t forget the super-hot color rose gold. Rose gold also comes into play with the silverware, which offsets the table setting beautifully.
A Valentine’s Day dinner in a private table setting for just the two of you is easy to pull off if you follow the few guidelines above. These Valentine’s Day table decorating ideas can help you create a romantic, cozy aura without the need to even leave your home, and you’ll have plenty of privacy as you move through the courses of your Valentine’s Day dinner together — and you won’t miss the cacophony of sound that may accompany a traditional V-Day dinner.
