This year indulge in an evening that’s filled with love and seduction from start to finish and design a romantic fireside Valentine’s Day dinner for two.
The menu for this cozy dinner for two is simple and easy; we’ve also included the perfect wine to pair with the meal. All you have to do is add romance, passion, and love. After all, the love is in the details…
SET THE TONE: Dim the lights; soft lighting encourages a romantic atmosphere. If you have a fireplace, top the mantel with candles and light a fire. If you don’t have a fireplace, no worries; arrange an assortment of candles on the hearth. The fire and lit candles will also illuminate your intimate room. For the music, choose one of your playlists filled with soothing and relaxing tranquil songs.
SET THE TABLE: Symbolize love and romance by draping the table with a fiery red linen tablecloth; alternatively, you can also use a white linen tablecloth. White table linens give the appearance of elegant fine dining; pair with cloth napkins that match up with your table linens. Set the table with stylish and elegant white china tableware and go with a similar selection of opulent utensils that coordinates with the dinnerware. Place a clear glass next to each plate for water as well as a wine glass.
CENTERPIECE:: Choose a floral centerpiece; nothing else speaks to the love and romance of Valentine’s Day better than flowers. Remember that roses are not your only choice for romantic florals; think tulips, carnations, or one of my personal favorites, ranunculus. Please keep it simple, arrange the blooms in a low vase that will not obstruct the evening’s view and conversation.
