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…
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.
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!
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:
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?
