A Soft & Romantic Valentine’s Day Table for Two

I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!

And because I do love putting together a pretty table anyway, this is a great way to celebrate without breaking the bank. If you’re like me and are always looking for new table setting ideas, be sure to check out my free e-book which is full of tablescapes, complete with sources and all my tips and tricks!

 

As you’ll see below, with just a little effort, you too can create an easy and Romantic Valentine’s Day Table for Two!

 

romantic Valentine's Day table pink roses pink velvet runnerI’m not a huge fan of red in general, so I focused on soft pinks to create a romantic table without a lot of fuss.

I found these miniature sized ones in several shades of the same pink and I’m smitten! They were less expensive than the larger ones, and I was able to get three dozen for under $20!

As I usually do, I added a pretty salad/dessert plate to the table to add some interest. I didn’t want it too “theme-y” since this is for adults (last year I used cute heart plates from Pottery Barn but that was more of a family table). I love that this plate is pink, but I can use it all spring and summer!

The gold flatware and brass candlesticks work really well with the pinks. I’d been eyeing these candlesticks for months now (love that they look vintage!) so they were my Christmas gift to myself, haha!) 😉

I hope this has inspired you to stay home on Valentine’s Day and spend a romantic night in with your significant other! Set the table with some nice dishes, cloth napkins, and a few flowers. Break open a bottle of something special. The night of love can be as simple as that. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate restaurant meal to be special. Just the fact that you’ve put in some extra effort says “I love you.”

Or, if you still have younger kids, take a look at last year’s table that I did, and make it a family night with little candies or gifts for everyone!

    I saw your picture on IG and just had to hop over to your blog and investigate a bit more! I love pretty table settings, and ones that especially involve pink. What are the sizes of your brass candlesticks, and do you have 2 of them on either side of the centerpiece? (I don’t know if I can purchase those right now since I splurged to get the beautiful glasses. I didn’t “need’ them, but I couldn’t resist! Ha! ) Fortunately, I have the perfect dinner plates for this setting. They are white with a pink trim and gold polka dots. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Sarah and thanks so much for coming over! The brass candlesticks are large and medium, and yes, I have two on either side of the centerpiece. (one medium and one large on each side). It sounds like you have the perfect plates for this!! They will be beautiful with the glasses. (And I can’t blame you for getting those – aren’t they so gorgeous?!!)

      Thanks again for stopping by – I really appreciate it! And I hope you signed up for the tablescape e-book as well 😉

  2. Sheila,
    I loved your blog post and I loved being in this blog hop with you. Your house looks gorgeous. As always!

    1. Aww you’re so sweet – thank you Leslie! It was great to “hop” with you, too!

      Happy Valentine’s Day to you;)

  3. So pretty! What is the greenery you used with the pink roses? You have inspired me to create a special Valentine’s dinner at home:)

    1. Aww I LOVE that – yay!! I used eucalyptus! You can get it at Trader Joe’s! 😉

  4. I am always a fan of a soft pink and subtle green. It lets the flowers shine. Sweet table. I like my dishes that have a soft pink too, not overpowering esp with food. Thanks for the share.

    Hi Sheila, I’m a Shelia too. Mines just spelled differently! I love those tiny pink roses and much prefer them over red. They’re so soft looking with the gold candle sticks. We don’t go out anymore for Valentines either. Too crowded and expensive. I much prefer an intimate quiet evening at home. We’re empty nesters for a lot of years now, so we like the peace and quiet, lol. Enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. I love meeting a fellow Shelia! And yes, I couldn’t agree more – it’s possibly the worst night to go out ever!

      Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by!
