Romance Is In The Air

This morning I set up my game table in the living room for an evening of  elegant romantic dining

I created the tablecloth from some yard goods I picked up. 

I centered the roses even though they will have to be removed for dining. While I created this I was thinking about one of those high end restaurants that offer private settings for dining. 

 I chose these floral dessert dishes for a bread plate. There is a small hummingbird on them too.  I layered them on the gold and red banded dishes that I use for the holidays.

 I stacked two chargers together, one gold on the very bottom, the other is a dark espresso wood to help create more definition between the plates and the tablecloth.

 The roses filled out nicely

A little champagne and candlelight

 Some jewelry to suggest a gift has been given
and a little chocolate to go with the decaff coffee before the dessert.

Romance is in the air....

Wishing you a lovely Valentine's Day!

  1. Liz, your red and gold table looks so elegant! You are definitely setting the mood for romance! Love the pretty dish stack!

  2. Love your romantic table for two Liz! The candlelights adds the perfect ambiance along with the champagne, jewelry, chocolate & roses! Happy Valentine's Day :)

  3. Liz, this really does look like a table at a high end restaurant, beautiful! I love the jewelry and chocolate on the cup and saucer, great idea. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

  4. So pretty Liz, I love the jewelry draped over the cup!! Happy Valentines Day!

  5. Very pretty. I love the salad (or dessert?) plates!

  6. So pretty! Much nicer than going out, that's for sure! We went out to a fancy restaurant only once for V-day many years ago and it was so crowded, overpriced and slow we've never done it again. Guess everyone thinks they should go "out" that night, but your table setting looks much more romantic and cozy to me:)

  7. Very romantic and lovely table, Liz! I can hear the piano music n the background. I love your candle holders!.

  8. The red and gold are so sophisticated and high end. I am worried about the tab in this exclusive dining spot! What a lovely table.

  9. Hi lovely lady.
    Your Tablescape for two is so pretty and so romantic ! I am loving your pick of dishes and the Gorgeous red roses for your centerpiece.. I hope you and your Hubby have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
    xxoo Diane

  10. Beautiful! This would be infinitely preferable to going out (to me). The jewelry's a nice touch. Hope you have a memorable Valentine's.

  11. Love your pretty candle light dinner! The romance of the roses is so pretty for your centerpiece. The use of the bread and butter plates adds more color to the laying of plates. Your table for two is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day! Hope you will take a peek of my red and white Valentine's table for you might enjoy it! Have a great 14th!


  12. That 1978 John Paul Young song "Love Is In the Air" is going to be in my head all day now! That's OK...I LOVE that song! And I LOVE this tablescape, Liz!!! You really brought romance in a big way! The china is exquisite....the gorgeous gold band is perfect!

    Hooray for romance! Enjoy your Valentine's Day!!!!!

  13. I would love to dine here, such a beautiful and romantic tablescape. The roses and candlelight make it perfect.
    Happy Valentine’s Day.............

  14. How romantic this is, Liz. I love that vase - such a unique shape. The square salad plates are such a perfect touch with your elegant dinner plates. This is much better than a fancy restaurant. I read on the internet that today (13th) is Galentine's Day, when you send love to your "gal" friends, so Happy Galentine's Day. laurie

  15. A beautiful table, and could easily be part of the decor of an elegant restaurant. I love your red plates, and you've shown them off well with you choice of chargers and other plates. So very well done, and so romantic! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  16. Your table is beautiful and so elegant. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner. May you have a lovely evening. Happy Valentine's Day.

  17. Your roses are beautiful, as is your table, gorgeous!


  18. I really love this table. The vase with the glass pedestal, is that all one piece?...so pretty and the gold flatware!

    Such a wonderful table....Happy Valentines Day!

    1. The vase and glass pedestal are two separate pieces. The glass piece comes from Wisteria.com They call it a glass riser.

  19. How absolutely beautiful!!! I'm in love with those roses and your table is stunning. I love the addition of the jewelry - a very nice touch!!!
