Dinner For Two

Sometime’s Valentine’s Day may involve elaborate plans, a night away, a dinner date, or giving gifts.  But sometimes you just need time alone together at home.  Today I’m sharing with you this beautiful Valentine’s Day table for two, just right for a dinner date from the comfort of your dining room.  The best part?  My supplies weren’t expensive or hard to come by!  Take a look at how I put together this romantic table setting for two.

For the candles I placed tea lights inside of jars, and wrapped them with scrapbook paper.  The top of the paper was punched with some of my favorite scrapbook paper punches.  (You can find a huge assortment of punches here.)

The flower arrangement is made from inexpensive grocery store flowers, arranged in a basic vase and then set inside of an olive bucket.

So now the big question that remains is: “What’s for dinner?”  I’d love for you to tell me your favorite date night meal in the comments below!  The first meal I made my husband was Chicken Parmesan.  It was before we were married and I sure stressed over all those details.  Pretty sure I could have ruined the entire thing and he wouldn’t have batted an eye.  That’s what young love will do to you.  😉

Whatever ends up on your table for date night in I hope you enjoy the time together most of all!

Have a beautiful evening,
