Create a romantic Valentine’s Day table setting

This Valentine’s Day, escape the hype and crowds and focus on what the day (should be) all about: being together with your love, in the space you love. Whether it’s a decadent breakfast, an extended brunch or dinner to-die-for, follow these steps to create a romantic Valentine's Day table setting. Cue the 'awwwww's'.



01

Nothing spells romance more than lots and lots of candles. Create a warm ambiance by dotting several pretty ones about the room. Try red and pink for a romantic theme. A richly scented candle will complete the sensory experience, along with a vase-full of fresh flowers. Let's be honest: nothing says Valentine’s Day more than a fresh bouquet. For extra points, pick some winter blooms from your own garden (or a friendly neighbour’s house, we won't tell) and use them as a Valentine’s Day table centrepiece.

02

Make it ceremonial, because it only (officially) happens once a year. Table linens like napkins and placemats will add flair and a sense of ceremony to your evening. Dress your table with a pretty tablecloth and beautiful crockery, and lay any extra flowers you have by each place setting. And the piece de la resistance: leave a hidden message tucked between the napkin... yours can be more inspired than our simple 'I love you'!

03

There is no celebration without a tipple or toast (the alcoholic kind, though we do love a good slice with butter). Treat your loved one to a decadent hot chocolate with breakfast, a champagne brunch, or an aperitif before dinner. Make it ceremonial: present your drinks on a tray and serve it before anything else.

04

Finally, prepare the sofa for the day or night ahead: have a blanket or throw, big enough for two, draped over the sofa. Place slippers nearby, and have a few candles at the ready to light around the room. Sit back, enjoy each other’s company, and take the time together to appreciate the little things you love.
