Romantic Valentine Candlelight Dinner


We usually don't make a big deal of Valentine's Day. A nice quiet candlelight dinner is how we will celebrate the night.

The table setting is simple. The roses and candlelight are the stars here.

The mercury glass vases each hold six red roses, plus one rose for the napkin.

There are ten mercury glass votives marching down the center of the table, plus the red votives at each place setting casting their candlelight glow.

Let's turn out the lights!

How romantic is this?

A sweet Valentine bouquet.

The roses.....

and candlelight....
make a romantic dinner for two.

Floral Plates: Sur La Table
White Plates: Pottery Barn
Chargers: Costco
Mercury Glass Votives: Cost Plus
Placemats, napkins, silver and cutlery, etc.
from my own collection.

I'm linking up to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. I'm sure there will be many Valentine themed tablescapes, so check them out!

I'm also linking up to Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie for her Valentine's Party on Friday. It will be fun to see all the Valentine inspiration there.

So pretty! When you have the napkin on the salad plate with the rose tucked in it, the design on the plate looks like part of the foliage. The rose looks like it was meant to be part of the place setting. So romantic!
