Figuring out how to decorate a table for Valentine’s Day depends on how you plan to celebrate the day. Whether you are planning a romantic date, a dinner party, a fun evening for you and your family, or you’re spending it by yourself, surround yourself with things you love to put a smile on your face. We’ve put together a few ideas to give you some inspiration.
Stick with a simple elegant look. Red tablecloths and napkins paired with crystal wine glasses and white dinner wear fit the theme perfectly without going overboard. To add to the ambience put a few red scented candles on the table to complete the festive mood.
Set down a lace doily in the middle of the table, place a dozen red roses in your prettiest crystal vase in the centre and two red candle sticks in the crystal holders on either side. If you want to get really creative set one of your food courses, or a bottle of wine and two glasses on the table and surround it with tea candles in a heart shape, light them and watch the sparks fly.
If you’re spending the evening at home with your family then the trick is to display all of the treats in a fun way. Why not bake a cake in a heart shaped pan and let the children decorate it, or build a centrepiece of sweets for your little valentines. When you’re picking decorations and sweets for children it really is impossible to choose anything cheesy because as long as it’s fun and it makes them smile, it’s great.
If you are single or are spending the day on your own, Valentine’s Day is a day about love and as the old saying goes, ‘you have to love yourself’ still holds true, so make the most of it. The best part is you can pick whatever makes you happy, so why not buy some of your favourite flowers or chocolates and break out a good bottle with a takeaway and enjoy by the candle light. Have yourself a bit of me time.
