Tips for setting a Valentine’s Day dinner table on the fly:
- Use Candles: Here’s the no brainer. Candles create an intimate setting for dinner no matter if you are with friends or your significant other.
- Create a Centerpiece: Pick up some fresh flowers in your favorite colors on your way home from work and put them in a vase to create a centerpiece for the evening.
- Set the Table: By this I mean, go all out! Use placemats, napkins, wine glasses, salad bowls – whatever you have to maximize the visual impact.
- Use Accessories: If you want to really to go all out, cut out hearts with red or pink paper and sprinkle them on your table. For a more subtle look, find pretty napkin holders or tie pink/red ribbon to each wine glass.
