GET THE LOOK :: A ROMANTIC BERRY HUED TABLETOP

When we stumbled upon this wine and berry hued tabletop, I knew it would be the perfect starting point for some Valentine’s Day tabletop inspiration. Taking a cue from this lavish setting, we recreated our own version of this dark and romantic table…

GET THE LOOK :: A DARK + ROMANTIC TABLE SETTING

Overflowing floral arrangements of saturated peonies, berries and a bit of greenery add depth and texture. I’d tuck the bundles into vintage brass urns and position a few of these Blackberry Absinthe Candles across the table.

Dark and Romantic Table Setting

This gorgeous place setting is reminiscent of a still-life, just begging for a couple to enjoy a long, dinner, complete with wine… and dessert!

GET THE LOOK :: A DARK + ROMANTIC TABLE SETTING

This look is all about mixing metals, textures, and layering. The more materials you combine, the more depth is created, which gives this tablescape a luxurious and rich feel. The play on light against the dark surfaces adds drama and delivers a baroque sort of vibe. Here’s how to recreate this one:

1 enoteca wine glass // 2 gold flatware  // 3 linen napkins with red trim // 4 plum dipping bowls // 5 white dinner plate // 6 gold hand vase // 7 black charger // 8 red salad plate// 9 silver tray

In the original inspiration, the florals play the role of color, but if you’re not hiring a professional florist this weekend (ha!), find a mix of pinks, reds and plums to create a small centerpiece, and then add color through dishes instead. And we love mixing in a little pewter with our gold or brass to give it an antique feel!

This entire scene had me swooning. Who would you invite to a dark and romantic dinner?

xo, Sarah

    Looks perfect! I will definitely use your idea to set up the mood for Valentine’s day. Me and my husband rarely have the time to have a nice romantic dinner so I decided to do something special. Have a lovely day!
