Date Night Winter Table Setting

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks to an 8-3 vote, Bo did indeed eat way too much turkey, just like his parents.

With all of the excitement of the holidays, it is easy to get wrapped up in entertaining and planning. However, I think it is so important to take some time out of this hectic month and have a nice date night with the person you love! Put on some great music, open a nice bottle of wine, and enjoy celebrating the holiday season with your better half.

Want to make date night just a little more special? Get your mind out of the gutter… this is a family-friendly-ish blog! ;) By setting the table like you were entertaining guests, it gives the whole date night a more formal, special, intimate feel. I am not crazy about overly-themed table settings, so here is my take on a simple, easy winter table setting that was created with things I already had around the house. The blue plates, mirror, runner, and glass give the table a winter-y feel (think sky, snow, and ice!) while the flowers and pine cones warm it up and and give it a woodsy holiday vibe.

Better late than never, I am linking up today’s table setting with Decor and the Dog’s Dare to DIY: Entertain link party. Go check out some other awesome holiday entertaining ideas! :)
