Serve up a romantic dinner for two this Valentine’s Day without a bit of red! Be adventurous- set a safari table.
So often trends in home interiors come from the fashion industry. Animal prints will continue to be popular in clothing and in decorating in 2013. Accessories are the easiest way to bring a little jungle into your home.
Set a small table in a cozy, romantic spot in your living room like in front of the fireplace. I topped a pink tablecloth with a faux zebra fabric remnant.
Continue adding layers. A black charger, a pink napkin folded in thirds and your basic white dinner plate.
I’ve been collecting black Luminarc dishes and stemware from Goodwill for years. These octagonal bowls and wine glasses were made in France. Each piece usually sells for 99¢, but I’ve found them in antique stores for more than $5.00!
The polka dot napkin is a square of fabric. Use pinking shears for a no-sew finish.
Place cards add a special touch even if it’s dinner for two.
Fold an index card in half. Using a rubber stamp put a heart in the middle and cut along the top edge. Fold the card in half and the heart stands up!
You cannot have a romantic dinner without candle light. I wrapped little votive cups with pink zebra ribbon and added a couple of tapers for height.
Serve your favorite dinner and a yummy dessert. What could be more romantic?
