Valentine's Day is nearing and the table settings have to be just right for that romantic dinner at home. Don't deal with the long waits at the restaurants, have some intimate time together at home. Here are 4 great tips on how to set the perfect table for your romantic night in: 1. Dress the table in layers. You want to dress the table according to the size and the shape of the table. For a round table, build from the center, rectangular and square, work from end to end. First the table cloth (preferably a solid color), then begin to add layers - placemats, napkins, etc.
2. Remember your theme. Yes, Valentine's Day can be a theme itself but you can go further and create an "Old Hollywood" style dinner table setting or a "Chic and Contemporary" style table setting. Choose deep rich colors and small vases with flower petals. Keep your theme in mind when decorating your table.
3. Dressy Napkins. Don't you dare do paper! For your romantic night in, choose napkins that have texture and color for added personality.
4. Add more color and shape with colored glassware. What a lovely thing to see green goblets, blue-tinted martini glasses and uniquely shaped stemware on a beautifully set table.
