How to Set a Romantic Table Setting

Set the Mood for Romance with Romantic Dinnerware Sets

As a seasoned wedding planner of over 10+ years there is one thing I know for sure, how to set a beautiful romantic tablesetting! There is nothing more special than sitting down with your amour, or friends and family, to a gorgeous tablesetting aglow with light, colors, textures and patterns. The art of setting a beautiful tablescape is a finely honed craft that one should pride themselves on and use as a reminder to slow down and cherish the ceremony of dinner with loved ones. 

Whether you are wining and dining your sweetheart for Valentine's Day, preparing a special dinner for your love's birthday or want to make any night extra special by preparing a romantic dinner for your sweetheart, we can help! We pulled together our favorite romantic dinnerware sets by Vista Alegre, Michael Wainwright and Philippe Deshoulieres to show you our favorite luxury dinnerware sets to set the table with.

  1. Table linens - start the table with a clean palette and layer on a sumptuous tablecloth or table runner for some color and texture.
  2. Placemats or Chargers - to set a strong base to your table setting we love to use either an ornate placemat or charger plate. We love the look of mixing styles and colors so get creative with your pairings such as the Kim Seybert metal chargers or colorful beaded placemats.
  3. Dinnerware Sets - we show you some of our favorites below such as the Christian Lacroix Butterfly Parade set or the the classical Blue Ming set designed by Marcel Wanders for Vista Alegre.
  4. Napkins & Napkin Rings - now this is where we love to have fun! Play with colorful patterns and textures such as the wine-proof collections of linen napkins by Mode Living paired with an ornate napkin ring by Kim Seybert.
  5. Candles, Candles, Candles - If you do nothing else, master the art of candlelight. We love mixing layers of candles including pillars, votives and tealights for a layered look and play on heights. Nothing is more romantic than candlelight flickering in your loves eyes.
  6. Flowers & Beautiful Vases - Even just a few simple blooms can bring layers of ambiance to your table. Whether a gorgeous arrangement (we suggest low in height to not block your eye contact) or a few cut fragrant blooms, a little can go a long way.
