Romantic Table For Two

Hello everyone, I am participating in Chloe's Romantic Table for Two Blog Hop.
My husband and myself usually dine alone. We usually find ourselves sitting together at our dining table, couch and  sometimes  in the Breakfast room.

With Valentine's so close, I thought a romantic meal in front of the fire would be special.

Sorry the photos are not that great.  I have been quite busy helping my parents.
They are both sick and as I said in the Digging it and Dishing post, I still have that persistent cough.
I am using Parchment Red by Mikasa dishware with a gold bowl.  I folded the red napkin like a blooming rose. Gold flatware compliment the gold in the dishware.

There is something special about a fireplace.  So romantic and cozy.

A lovely red candle and a small vase of roses complete the look.  Of course, I had to use our gold goblet and gold chargers.  Champagne shall be enjoyed as well.  My husband and I have a tradition of having champagne every Sunday.

Thank you Chloe for hosting this fabulous Romantic Blog Hop. I look forward to seeing all of the beautiful tablescape these talented ladies have created.  Please take the time to visit each and everyone.  The list is below.

  1. Glamour, sophistication, elegant and romantic describe your table. I love the napkin fold like a rose and your china is beautiful as well as your lovely tablecloth.
    Hope your parents recover quickly and you too. Prayers going your way.

  2. Your table is gorgeous Linda! I love the smocked red tablecloth and napkins presented as a rose in your bowls. The Mikasa Parchment Rouge is such a perfect pattern to enjoy for Christmas or Valentine's Day with the gold scroll design. I love your Sunday champagne tradition, I may have to adopt it myself :)

  3. Looks lovely, great rose fold on the napkins.

  4. Linda, beautiful composition by the fireplace with your dinner for two! The rose fold of the napkin is gorgeous! All this is so pretty, but the real beauty and show of love is exactly what you're focusing on right now - love and care for your parents. Sending well wishes for you, their caregiver, and to them, for optimal health.

  5. This is so romantic and beautiful Linda. Love how you set it up by the fireplace. The dishes are beautiful and I love the flowers in the unique glass cube. The napkin folded into a napkin shape is the perfect touch!
    Sorry your parents are not well. It's great that you went to help them even though it's exhausting. Prayers for their recovery and you too.

  6. Your table is so romantic, Linda. I love the pretty tablecloth with the Mikasa dishes, and the rose napkin fold. What a sweet tradition that you and your sweetie have every Sunday evening. Bless you as you care for your parents, as you continue to fight your cough. Prayers are with you!

  10. It's simply beautiful Linda, and the rose napkin is a fantastic and fabulous touch! Nothing is more romantic than a table for 2 by the fire- I hope everyone feels better soon!

  11. Linda, such a pretty setting for a romantic dinner. Fireplaces are certainly making a tablescape statement in our blog hop. Sorry to hear that you've had some health challenges. Hope everyone is on the mend soon.

  12. Linda, what a beautiful and cozy table for two. The rich color palette and that gorgeous tablecloth adds to the romantic themed tablescape. Your pretty china and the way you placed the napkins into sweet little roses is the perfect finishing touch. I hope that your parents and you get to feeling better soon. Take care of yourself!

  13. Linda, what an elegant table setting! I love the color scheme you chose and especially those rose-folded napkins. You must share a tutorial! The tablecloth is fabulous, china exquisite and ambiance - perfect. I'm envious of your weather that allows a dinner by the fire. We are still warm here in the south.

  14. Hi Linda, such a lovely romantic table for two. I love the setting and the beautiful napkin rose. This could be a little tutorial sometime (hint, hint) Sure hope your cough improves and prayers for your parents too. Wishing you a great week. xoxo

  15. Such a pretty table and how nice to have it set right in front of your fireplace! What is more romantic than that? The red dishes are beautiful and I really like your napkins folded like a rose. One of these days I will teach myself creative ways to fold napkins...maybe! Thank you so much for being a part of the tablescape blog hop!

  16. The rose napkins are the crowning touch!

  17. How special that you and your hubby enjoy champagne together every Sunday! And with a gorgeous tablescape like this, I know your Valentine's day will be extra romantic. I am a big fan of your smocked tablecloth and how much drama those type of linens add to the look of a table(I need to get one!). Your rose shaped napkin fold is so perfect for the occasion! The "icing on the cake" is that you've set this terrific table beside the fireplace - so cozy and inviting! It is fun participating in this blog hop with you. Hope you and your parents feel better soon.

  18. Your table is gorgeous Linda! I love your china it looks so sofisticated on your table.Thanks for shering

  19. Hello Linda,

    You have set a beautiful table for two and what better spot to enjoy a romantic dinner for two than fire side. The rose napkin adds an elegant touch to your table setting. You did a fantastic job creating an intimate table for two.

    Hope is everyone is feeling better.

    So glad to be joining you on this blog hop.


  20. That is just lovely, Linda. So pretty and very romantic. There is just something about a fireplace with a table in front of it, isn't there? I am so sorry to hear about your mom and dad. Taking care of aging parents is never easy---the role reversal comes at a cost, I know. I am sorry that you are not feeling well either. I hope you get better soon. xo Diana

  21. Lovely and charming.

  22. Dear Linda,
    this really is such a wonderful and romantiv Table for Two!
    Wishing you a lovely week, my friend,
    Sending Love and hugs,
    Claudia xo

  23. Beautiful table (I have same red & gold plates!) for you & your sweetie, Linda! Love the rose napkin! You are very lucky to still have him around to celebrate with. Valentines Day was our such a melancholy day. Ugh!
    I will advise all my grandchildren NOT to get married or engaged on a holiday...should have their own special day.
    I hope your cough goes away soon & that your parents recover quickly. I just heard about the norovirus sweeping the nation on this morning's news. Double Ugh!! Be well!!

  24. If I had as many options for dinner as you do Linda, I would never go out! Your husband is one lucky guy to have all these beautiful dinners planned by a lovely wife!

  25. This is so elegant and the colors you have chosen are deep and sultry, perfect for the theme. I love your Sunday tradition and wish you and your parents a speedy recovery.

  26. Just lovely, stopping by from the blog hop. Thank you for sharing!

  27. I love your table Linda! Very cozy and romantic! ♥

  28. Linda, I hope everyone is feeling better soon. We all had a virus in my office and the darn cough persisted for three weeks. I hope to set a romantic table like yours for our anniversary on February 14.

  29. Linda,
    I sure hope that your cough will soon go away and that your parents continue to feel better. Winter is hard on us all.
    Your table setting is so romantic and inviting and of course the cozy fire creates a warm, and comforting ambiance.
    Beautiful my dear!

  30. Sophisticated and romantic…love the entire setting but especially the red rose napkin. I do hope your parents as well as yourself are better soon.
