Romantic Valentines Table Setting

Valentine's Day around the Barksdale house tends to be pretty low key. Matt has a birthday right before Christmas and then mine is right before V-day, so by the time February 14th rolls around we are both a little spent (pun intended) on gift-giving. But just because we both want to keep our celebration low key doesn't mean it has to be lame! This year we are planning to go a fun dinner at home... which got me brainstorming some fun, easy ways to set a romantic dinner table at home.

I really like how elegant these little bottle vases look. It would be really easy to pick up a few different glass bottles at a craft store and then buy a bundle of flowers at the grocery store to divide up into each bottle.

oh, to live by the beach and have a Valentines dinner in the sand.... what a dream.

I really like how this antique table setting looks. It is so romantic. I bet you could find some items like these at antique stores, flea markets or even garage sales if you just keep an eye out for them.

This rustic Valentines day theme is really cool too. I bet it wouldn't take too much time to cut out some fun paper hearts to attache to branches in a vase.

Who says you even need to set a fancy table? I would love to take a romantic picnic! Especially since it has been in the 50's all week here in Nashville.

Do you have any special Valentine's day traditions?
