Planning a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner with your sweetie? Setting the right mood for a romantic dinner begins with Valentine’s Day inspired table linens.
A white lace tablecloth layered over a bright red tablecloth is one easy way to set a romantic Valentine’s dinner table. I use my damask Christmas tablecloth for our romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, and once it’s covered with white lace, no one can tell that the pattern beneath features un-Valentine-ish poinsettias and holly.
Solid red tablecloths without a holiday print are often priced under $10 towards the end of December and certainly worth picking up for Valentines Day. These solid red tablecloths can be paired up with a Valentine’s Day runner in a heart motif, or used with Heart Shaped place mats.
White lace will also work on a red or pink vinyl table liner. Inexpensive table liners are available at party supply stores and dollar stores, and can often be purchased between $1 to $3. Are these ideas too tame? For Valentine’s Day table linens with hearts, flowers, and other romantic images, these on line retailers are worth checking out:
