This table setting is perfect for Valentine’s family dinner.

  3.  Scatter Valentine’s chocolates on the table.
  4.  And place some on the plate too. For a fancier effect, put them in little heart-shaped jars; dollar stores often sell those.

Pink and gold create a lovely romantic atmosphere. Spruce up the table just for you two.

Deliver a special note to your spouse in a cute frame, or use the frame as a place card holder. The ones I used, are actually ornaments. So whatever you can find works.

Where I live, we often have snow on Valentine’s, so the wintery blue and silver color scheme is quite fitting.

  • Place a pink rose on the napkin and tie it with a sparkly silver ribbon
  • Put one pink Valentine’s candy on the plate with some blue ones like I did.
  •  Adorn the place setting with pink roses.
  •  Use pink napkins.
