Valentine Dinner

I’m sharing a Valentine dinner for two tablescape today.

Valentine Dinner

Red plastic Dollar Store chargers, topped with Lenox Moonspun dinner plates and Williams Sonoma Soups.

For a Valentine’s dinner, I have the use the silverware pattern, named “Eternally Yours” by William Rogers.

Red stemware also seems to be a “must” for a Valentine table.

On the bread plate (Vera Lace by Wedgwood), I used tiny red pots for melted butter, and baby spoons (yes, that’s a dog on the spoon handle) to put butter on our rolls and on our baked potatoes.

A red heart-embroidered napkin is topped by a white “Love” handkerchief.

My napkin holder is an ice skating girl.

His holder is a boy with his sailboat.

One of my “estate sale” tureens tops another red charger for service of our first course.


I previously showed you this cloche, but I moved it to the table for a Valentine centerpiece.

We have to have salt and pepper for baked potatoes.

Valentine Dinner for Two

The best place to share soup, steak and baked potatoes is in front of the fireplace.

Laurie, your table for two in front of the fire looks like the perfect romantic evening. Love the sweet "love" hankie and the two figural napkin rings are making my heart swoon.

Laurie, the figural napkin rings are wonderful! I went to an antique show, and the vendor had made over 100 different figural napkin rings and I couldn't decide which ones I wanted so I bought none. I'll be at the party tomorrow evening!

Love it Laurie! I'm in love with those white embroidered napkins!

Hi Laurie, what a cozy spot and romantic dinner for two. I love your napkin rings and the tablecloth is so pretty with the hearts. Darling shakers too.
See you at the party.

Tricia said...

A romantic dinner by the fire! What could be better? I love the pic of you two on your wedding day! And the whole table is lovely. Your Moonspun china is so versatile!

Debbie said...

How is it that you can whip up table after lovely table, and I'm struggling with ONE?

I loved this, as usual. I will definitely not be here by tonight, but if the link is still active, I will link when the table is done. Don't really want to get my flowers too soon. Selfishly whining in my head that this link up isn't on Monday instead. Waaaaaa....

Anyway, back to work.

Laurie, I love the napkin rings, they are a beautiful sentimental touch for an already beautiful table. And you know I really love the cloche.

Laurie, everything is perfect for your Valentine table! Everything! I especially love that the name of your silverware fits the occasion. And, I have to mention the adorable salt and peppers - dogs represent love, don't they? I enjoyed your post very much!
