Setting the Scene – Romantic Tabletop Ideas for Valentine’s Day

It’s time to set the table for two–
this Valentine’s Day, use white and blue.
A flickering candle, a dose of champagne
will ensure that love forever will reign.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be covered in red.  Blue and white are a sophisticated color combination that will complement the tasty morsels you’ve devised.  Hand-painted pottery from Craft Link, Vietnam are beautiful pieces for a romantic tabletop.  Dessert plates with bowls and a vase to match make for a cohesive look.

Candles will set a soft glow to warm the heart and add an ambient mood.  The classic idea of a candlelit table is true to its associated grandeur.  The flicker and glow of small flames create a magic unlike any other type of light.

Champagne is a drink for celebrations.  Drink from a vessel that’s as special as the occasion.  The Plated Brass Champagne Flute from India is a good option to dress up your table and make everything feel just a little more fancy.

No holiday would be complete without a card to capture your sentiments.  The Filigree Heart Card from Bangladesh is made in a style of “quilled” paper.  A technique dating back centuries, this process of coiling paper around a quill creates intricate patterns and spirals reminiscent of the finest filigree.  Blank inside, this card gives the opportunity to express your feelings on a personal level.

It’s always nice to be reminded of how important you are to someone.  Remind your loved ones every day how much you appreciate their presence.

    That table setting is beautiful. And now I’m hungry for tiny cupcakes.
