Love is in the air and to celebrate I’ve put together this Romantic Tablescape For Two in Silver and White. I’m also happy to be a participant in this Romantic Tablescape Bloghop organized by Chloe Crabtree from Celebrate and Decorate. The ladies have put forth their best so please check out their beautiful work at the links below.
Rather than put up a smaller table in another area, I decided to use our formal dining room table. We are fortunate that our dining room furniture has lasted for over 36 years and holds special memories. In the past, I’ve style several Sweetheart Tables and they came together quickly. Somehow this romantic table was different. My intention was to create not only a beautiful setting but an intimate on. Originally, I had the place settings directly across from each other and that didn’t feel right because that’s not us. So, I placed them where we normally sit, not where they would look best. In addition, I kept the décor to a minimum.
How My Romantic Tablescape For Two in Silver and White Came Together
There is no shortage of bling on this table that’s for sure. The reflection from it in the sunlight and with the tealights creates a warming ambiance. The table starts with a white damask cloth.
I positioned the centerpiece closer to the settings and at an angle. I used a faux fur piece as the base for the centerpiece to sit on.
Several years ago, I added lots of bling to the edge of a thrift store tray. A white cylindrical vase lined with white scrapbook paper hold Faux white hydrangeas. Also on the tray are blinged tealight holders that came from Big Lots. Silver taper holders flank each side.
To add a bit of dimension to the stack I folded white sequined table runner into a square and they are the beginning of each stack. They are followed by a white acrylic charger and a white dinner plate with a wide silver rim. These plates also are a thrift store purchase. There were only three and seldom do I have a table set for three so this setting was perfect.
Atop each dinner plate sits a small white appetizer plate. Resting on it there’s a white linen napkin with a small lace motif in the corner. Also on each napkin; dainty glitter handled dessert forks which are a Burlington’s purchase. Blinged tealight holders complete the stack.
On occasion, I’ll describe this cutlery as gray; today they’re silver. The spumante will be served in the cut glass goblet. I will have water in my tumbler and hubby will have his favorite ice tea. The dinner menu is still in the works. I’m leaning towards veal if I can find it and hubs choice is steak.
Thanks Chloe for bringing us all together again. Listed below is the Romantic Tablescape Bloghop and the links to each site.
