This Romantic Style Tablescape was created for a couples dinner that I am hosting. I am inviting my husband’s three brothers and their wives to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Using mostly white and cream colors with a touch of pink on my table. I used hobnail vases with candles for the centerpiece to give the table a romantic feel.
My husband and I want to have his three brothers and their wives who are like sisters to me over for dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I want to create a romantic style tablescape. Also, the meal to be as good as if we went out to a fancy restaurant. I did graduate from Culinary School so I was planning to pull out some skills that I learned while I was there. We served filet mignon with an espresso blend rub and topped it with blue cheese compound butter. The recipe will be coming to the blog this month because it is amazing!
When I style a table for company, I try to use things that I already own. Purchase one or two things is okay but I do not like to spend money on something that I will only use once. First, I start with a macrame runner that I purchased last summer. I have some placemats that sort of match but it was definitely close enough to look good together. Using white square plates because I think food always looks better on white plates.
For my centerpiece, I used 6 clear hobnail vases with white candles. These vases at a thrift store find for $1. The thrift store is the first place I look when I am looking for something to go on the center of the table because it is the type of item that people use only once. The string bows were already tied on each one so I know that someone was using it for a special occasion.I found these succulents in the 80% off after Christmas clearance at Michael’s so I purchased 8 of them. I figure that I can scrape off the faux snow if I want to use them for summer but he snow on the plants looked perfect for Valentine’s Day.I did purchase new pink napkins for this tablescape because I thought that the table needed some pink. The napkins will be used a lot all Spring and Summer.

The romantic style tablescape for our dinner turned out so pretty and everyone enjoyed themselves. It is a little work to entertain but everyone coming together around our table instead of meeting in a noisy restaurant is worth it!
