A special table for Valentine

I am not a friend to celebrate Valentine's Day, but to put some nice tables. Any menu, any celebration and any meeting, whether from a couple or from friends, are better with a well set table, with interest and love.

If you think that a table for Valentine's Day has to be full of hearts and cursiladas, it will not be me who contradicts you, now, that before I prefer that the earth be opened and swallowed, that I was indigestible so much cake. I have looked for tables that tell us something, that impact us and that serve for every taste.

The tablecloths should be in line with the rest of the decoration. Many times we have beautiful embroidered thread tablecloths, topped with lace or brocades that have been in a drawer for some time and we never decided to use them, these celebrations are the right time.

Although I really like tablecloths, I have to admit that if you have a pretty wooden table, it is great to be able to wear it and we could opt for some placemats, like these that the decorator Caitin Leffel recommends us of thread with sheath, with their matching napkins. If your table is a bit cramped or does not have a lucrative envelope, a simple colored fabric will serve to put under the individual.

A special tableware, perhaps of lenght or inheritance, which then we will keep a lot of putting in the dishwasher so that it does not spoil, will give a touch vintage very elegant. Sometimes these dishes arrive incomplete, do not mind!

Can be mix dishes without problems, put the flat plate of one, the soup of another and a bowl of a third, provided it is done with grace. Look at the effect from afar, because it is the typical thing that can look great or a churro.

Normally you have to choose between Candlesticks with candles or floral center, but this time it will be best to have both, since it will not be me who breaks the universal tradition of dining in Valentine's Day to candlelight (and it is also a huge energy saving). If you have the candles of the same tone as the drawings of the dishes and the flowers of the center the result will be spectacular.

The cutlery It's fundamental. Nothing that kills more quickly the sophistication of a well-placed table like ugly or vulgar cutlery. Look for a nice cutlery, in the decoration shops you have lots of models to choose each one to your liking. If you neither find nor want to spend, a tie tied taking the three cutlery is decorative and original.

Now we go with the Under plates and saucers of bread Personally, I love them, be they colors, crystal, silver, alpaca or derivatives or even rattan. They give the table a touch of celebration.

The bread plates with their handkerchiefs are decorative and we prevent the bread crumbs from being distributed throughout the table and from being in contact with the metal (if the plates are made of metal) since they are usually cleaned with chemicals.

Finally, I leave you a classic Valentine's Day table, so you don't say I'm a bland. You celebrate it well

You know that I am very much in favor of modular furniture, they seem very practical because they adapt to the available space and the needs of people at all times. If we change our house we can easily relocate them and we can even move them from the room without problems inside the same house.
