Since the 15th century this holiday of giving flowers, sweets and cards hasn't changed much.
Decorating a "love" table can be exciting in anticipation of who the guest will be. It's an opportunity to get as fancy or as frilly as you like. Using traditional Valentine colors of red and pink for the tablecloth and table skirt set a soft background for the vintage plates and modern decorations. Silver accent pieces add a bit of glamour.
TIP: Whether you're decorating for fun, flirtation or romance, keep the ambiance soft and flirty. Instead of giving candy, consider a love coupon.
