February is the month of love, and whether you are celebrating Valentine's or Galentine's, there is never a better reason to set the perfect table for two, more or just for yourself!
No date is required for the perfect Valentine's, and you can set a beautiful table even if the menu is takeout ;)
Romance is in the air
Just because it's Valentine's doesn't mean you need to stick to the traditional red. Instead, opt for soft blush hues for your tablesetting for a romantic atmosphere that is also warm and inviting if you're celebrating with girlfriends. Choose neutral tones for your base, and decorate your table with blush color accents like glasses and napkin rings.
As for setting the table, choose a loose linen tablecloth or a runner for an effortlessly chic, sexy and relaxed look (yes, all at the same time.) Add the wipeable placemats (because isn't it about making it easy?) and little touches like Fez napkin rings in blush for some subtle romance.
If you're looking to create a romantic tablesetting, roses always do the trick! Skip the formal centerpiece, which can get in the way across the table or block the other person, and instead create a shorter arrangement of your favorite ones.
Celebrating Valentine's with your besties? Go for blush colored flowers that will create a cozy, and a relaxed vibe. Plus, fresh flowers always set a positive mood.
End it on a sweet note
Desserts are the perfect way to end a beautiful dinner, and you can add a romantic hue or a pop of color to your table with your desserts and treats. My favorite these days are macaroons, perfect for a bite-size dose of colorful delight!
