Live your WHOLE life,

Love is in the air this time of year. Whether you are in a romantic relationship, or you long to be, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the ones you love – yourself included. Perhaps you’ll choose to honor the ones you’re celebrating through a gift of flowers, handwritten notes, or simply spending quality time together.
One of my favorite traditions is setting the table for two on Valentine’s Day. I started to do this long before my husband and I first met, as a way of celebrating myself (and providing the Universe with a hint that I was open to receiving a romantic partner). Funny enough, when that guy finally showed up years later, our first date fell on the weekend of Valentine’s Day. (We’re celebrating six years together this week!)
Set your table for two, six, or one – jazz it up, add a little sparkle, and most of all have fun with it! Each theme was built using everyday tableware and decorations I’ve gathered over the years. By simply featuring different tableware and centerpiece elements, you can instantly change the vibe of the room. The possibilities are endless!
I hope these Valentine’s Day tablescapes inspire you to treat yourself and those you love to a wholesome meal, some chocolate covered strawberries, meaningful conversation, and most importantly, champagne – because after all, sometimes having a bottle of champagne in the fridge is reason enough to celebrate.
