Romantic Tabletops

Check out these tips on how to make an ordinary dining table a romantic setting.

David Stark shows how a few simple items can transform the ordinary dining table into a romantic experience:

  • Red and gold come to mind when thinking about romance and this tabletop would take anyone's breath away. The tablecloth, tassels on the napkins, tea glasses full of candles and dark-colored flowers combined with fruit, like those found in Dutch master paintings, bring this opulent look together.

  • A variety of pillar candles customized with bands of red and pink ribbon (held in place with pearl pins) around the bases are just as powerful as a floral arrangement. Be sure to use unscented candles for the dining table to keep the scents about the food.
