Romantic Table Settings

 Let's Face it, there are few things more romantic than sharing a meal together. Weather it's breakfast in bed, or a wonderful dinner, we love sharing a meal with our loved ones.

For those of you who are married and have small children, you may say, I can't have a Valentines dinner with my husband, we have small children.  Well, I say the only thing better than having a husband to share a romantic dinner with, is having children see that thier parents love each other.  Make it a family Valentines meal, and share your love with your children.

For those of you who don't have a "significant other".  I say, love comes in many forms, share a Valentines meal, with your parents, your siblings, your best friends, or your children.  

 So share a meal with someone you love, and set a pretty table that says "I love you"

 Here is a fun table setting that even kids can help with, print out a vintage valentine on your computer and wrap it around your favorite candy bar.

Even simple touches like lace napkins with a simple heart shaped napkin ring add a real romantic touch.  Consider sprinkling pink or red rose petals or heart shaped confetti, on your table for even more romance. 

This French Country Red & White table is so charming with roosters, toile linens, and hydrangeas
If you're lucky enough to live in a mild climate, nothing is more romantic than a meal and flowers in the garden:)
