Setting the Table for Love

A touch of effort and organization pays beautiful dividends in creating a romantic table setting.



A Table to Love Valentine’s Day is approaching, but dinners for two shouldn’t just be reserved for Feb 14. So let’s skip the uninspired red roses and heart-shaped box of candy.

A softer, more varied color palette, heart-shaped, chocolate-dipped cookies, a small gift wrapped in brown paper and bearing the last line of Beethoven’s famous poem “Ever Ours” … it all combines for a table setting to love.
