Valentine’s Day Table Setting Ideas

Valentine’s Day is a day to honor the most heartfelt sentiment ever – LOVE. And everything today must be spectacular! When you plan to end (or begin) your day with a lovely Valentine’s Day dinner, you need to ensure that the table looks as romantic as your mood.

Think roses, hearts, candles, red napkins and plates. DotComWomen.com gives you some beautiful ideas for setting a lovely table for Valentine’s Day and any other romantic occasion in your lives:

Roses for Love

Nothing says ‘LOVE’ better than roses. Start with white table linen and china and then go the classic way and adorn each place setting with a long stemmed rose and spread rose petals all around it.

A large rose at each table setting makes a bold statement and co-ordinates with the red base plate.

Red Hearts

Is there a better symbol of love? Use red heart-shaped ornaments at each place setting to co-ordinate with the red napkins and candles. A sprinkling of red heart glitter confetti will add some sparkle and glistens beautifully in candle light.

Heart Shaped China

If heart-shaped dinner plates aren’t your style, you could still use the shape for any other course. Dessert, for example, is naturally romantic and looks beautiful served in heart shaped plates.
