Romantic Valentine Dinner

Join me for a candlelight dinner by the fire.

A cozy fire and candlelight sets the mood doesn't it?
If there is a time for a special table it is Valentine's Day!
Flowers from my garden are especially nice this year because we just had an ice storm.

Eschenbach china (Bavaria), stems and napkin rings Pier 1, chargers Wal- Mart, napkins from the Philippines years ago, vintage english fish knife ( Spence Collection-Scotts Antique Market) Buttercup by Gorham sterling, candle holders (various gift shops).

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  1. You create such a setting of warmth and elegance and attention to every little detail... I know your husband and family always feel the love you offer them in your gift of time and talent. blessings ~ tanna

  2. 100% fabulous!!! I swear I could almost hear Barry White in the background! :-) The napkin rings are really, really pretty. They remind me of pomegranate seeds which I find to be one of God's little miracles. The flatware is gorgeous, too! I miss the days when people used things like fish forks and such on a regular basis! Let's bring a little "Downton Abbey" back to our tables!!!

    Very romantic and pretty! I hope you and your sweetie pie have a wonderful and memorable Valentine's Day. Bye!!

  3. What an elegant and gorgeous Valentine's table sweet Bonnie! Love the napking rings and all the small votives, it sure puts me in the mood for love. I too love Narry White andf have great memories when I hear him singing. Your flatware is lovely too...everything is my friend. Happy Valentine's to you too!

  4. Bonnie,
    This table is romantic..
    Love, Mona

  5. Such beauty! The table is very romantic and simply charming. Hugs to you, Bonnie!

  6. SWOON Bonnie, your table is beautiful! I love the the subtle and small accents of red and pop of color provided from your napkin rings, glasses & camellias!

    P.S. I was in World Market yesterday and they had gotten in their marbled heart cups.

  7. What an elegant and romantic Table for Two! Your champagne flutes are especially beautiful. :-)

  8. What an elegant, romantic and intimate table! And being by the fireplace just adds to the wonderful ambiance,...Christine

  9. Lovely, Bonnie. I'm going to be away on Valentine's so tonight I will fix the traditional veal chop for the hubby, and you've given me inspiration to make the table for two a little something special.

  10. A truly lovely, warm and welcoming table. Your china is gorgeous and you've set such a pretty picture for Valentine's. Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  11. Hi lovely lady.
    I love your Valentine's Day Tablescape with all the red and white. There is no doubt in my mind that you are an artist. This tablescape is absolutely gorgeous in every respect.
    I hope you have a wonderful week with your family and a great Valentine's Day.
    God Bless.

  12. Simple and elegant Bonnie, you can't beat that! And by the fire too, so cozy and relaxing!

  13. What a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine's day.

    Thankful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  14. Oh my goodness Bonnie, this is GORGEOUS!!! I love every single thing on this table! I think this is one of my favorites that you've done. The plates are beautiful, and so is the red stemware. All the lovely votive holders and candles make the silver sparkle -- this is truly an elegant table. I love that you have some camellias (no doubt from your garden) to add that perfect touch of red. Such a romantic table for Valentine's Day.

    Thanks for sharing Bonnie. I'm glad I stopped back by; I thought I had already looked at this and left a comment, but this is the first time I've seen it. Are you all under the winter storm warning like the rest of us? Stay warm and safe. :)



  15. This is so romantic and beautiful. Love those red flutes and those great napkin rings. What a sweet little basket of roses. Thank you for linking to my party. Happy Valentine's Day! laurie

  16. I love this!! Really, it's just beautiful to me. I wasn't planning to do a table for two for tonight. We were thinking about going out instead. Now, you make me want to do one. The burning question is, in the middle of this ice storm clean up, do I even have the time?

  17. Hello Bonnie, thank you for your lovely message, it is good to be back in the land of the living! I did make the moss wreath. I usually have a wreath on the door at Christmas, but didn't get one made this year, so I have a Valentine's one instead. Have a happy Sunday, love Linda x

  18. Love your Valentine tablescape!!!!!! It is so creative and romantic.......
