Welcome to our Styled + Set Valentine’s Day blog tour! Today we are sharing our Valentine’s Day entertaining ideas. A big thanks to the host, Lory from Designthusiasm. She works very hard to organize these holiday blog hops so you will be able to gather many ideas at once.
Valentine’s Day is most definitely one of my favorite holidays. I have many memories of wonderful dinners with Tony. He does an amazing job of planning special evenings. We LOVE going out, but we also love to stay home and have figured out how to make an evening in just as special as an evening out.
Because restaurants can be so crowded on Valentine’s Day, I want to show you how to make dinner at home romantic and memorable.

Let’s be honest….don’t we all need a little more time without our phones nearby, ready to distract us? For Valentine’s dinner, try setting your phone aside. I know you won’t regret it. And perhaps you will want to set it aside more often!
As a side note, if you’ve been watching The Bachelor, you may have seen the “first impression rose” on this tray with the gold edge. It’s actually a cheese board and one of the most beautiful accessories I’ve ever found!
This is one of the rare times that more is more! You really can’t have too many candles on Valentines Day.
I brass candlesticks for height and kept the rest of the candles small.
A few extra candles fit perfectly on a smaller table which I set off to the side. This is such a simple thing you can do to increase the ambiance in your space.
Okay, so your husband may not care if you include flowers, but chances are, you will enjoy them. And they definitely add a romantic vibe.
These pink spray roses are just a few dollars at the grocery store. Try using a round vase in silver or gold for a glamorous look. You can also elevate them for extra height. I used a marble tray to raise them up a bit.
If your husband brings you flowers too, how wonderful!

Even if you decide to have your main course out, there is something incredibly romantic about dessert at home. I kept it simple with a small lemon cake from my local grocery store. Simply removing it from the container and putting it on a cake stand (similar) makes it beautiful. For an extra layer on top, I added blackberries and blueberries. Raspberries or strawberries would also be beautiful.
Romantic, right? I hope you’ll try a date night at home, whether you do it on Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year!
For those of you who are frequent visitors, you may not recognize this spot. It is part of our Colorado home which is becoming more and more complete by the day!
The table was borrowed and I found the cute blush chairs at a favorite store of mine, West Elm Boulder.
