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! :)

    It looks amazing, Erika! Love the little name tags. This is going to sound weird, but I always wanted silverware with the thicker colored handles like yours :P

    I think it’s gorgeous! Love the slate blue plates, dark brown pine cones and deep red flowers.

      Thanks so much Ashley! I have always preferred burgundy and blue to green and red for Christmas/winter colors! I get that from my mom! :)

      Thank you so much! I used some foam letter stickers (I think the brand name is “Thickers”) I got from the craft store and stuck them on to white gift tags. Super easy! :)

    This is so beautiful! I love the pinecones and other natural elements you included. And your silverware is so pretty! I like to do this a couple times a month for my hubby and I — it’s nice to fancify dinner a bit to make it extra romantic.

    This looks so cute!
    I would never put that much effort into setting the table for two people because I’m lazy ;)

    I love the colors you used, though – and the flowers, too! not too fussy, just enough to dress it up a bit!
