For my tablescape, I wanted to create a soft and romantic theme for a quiet dinner at home for my daughter, Amanda, and her boyfriend, Karter.
They usually hang out here on Saturday nights and have dinner and watch a movie.
I thought this would be the perfect time to cook them their favorite dinner, with dessert of course.
Set A Romantic Valentine’s Day Tablescape
I’ve talked many times about “shopping my house”. It’s a great way to decorate for each season, but also stay on budget.
For this tablescape, I’m thrilled to say I didn’t have to buy anything-except two donuts.
Here is what I started with. This gorgeous crushed velvet fabric is the perfect backdrop for a soft and romantic tablescape:
Next up, I pulled out silver dollar store chargers:
Along with pretty pink scallop edge chargers for layering:
My Noritake Rothschild wedding china makes an appearance again. I’m so happy that 32 years later I still love this china:
Small dessert glasses hold a trio of chocolate hearts:
Valentine’s Day Floral Centerpiece
This gorgeous centerpiece was created by my talented sister for my niece’s wedding. The colors and dimension are just what this romantic table needed:
A couple of mercury glass candles and a few heart-shaped doilies add to the classic elements of Valentine’s Day:
Both Amanda and Karter are over 21, so glasses of Prosecco are perfect for a toast:
I may even make this raspberry moscato:
They both love donuts from Dunkin so I picked up a couple festive heart donuts for an after dinner treat:

Easy Tips For A Romantic Valentine Table
- Shop your home. It is amazing what you will find tucked away in your hutch or hope chest. Take out the good china and enjoy it now. What are you saving it for?
- Use unconventional items to decorate. Remember that crushed velvet table runner? That is simply two yards of fabric from the craft store. Use scarves, sheets, blankets or quilts as a tablecloth or runner.
- Use fabric napkins. One thing I recommend investing in are a set of white cloth napkins. You can find them on sale at JCPenney or Kohl’s, or sometimes even Pier 1.
- If you don’t have a pretty centerpiece, stop by Trader Joe’s and pick up a seasonal bouquet. They are worth every penny!
- Mix old and new, expensive and thrift store finds. My vintage china looks right at home with dollar store chargers.
