Date Night At Home.

One of my favorite things about being married, is that I still get to date my husband. During our first year of marriage we didn't get to see each other that much because of work schedules, so time together was precious. It made me realize how thankful I was for the time we have together, and sometimes, being at home can be just as much of a date as going out.

I've put together one of my favorite at home dinner date night tablescape looks. Its a simple yet elegant look and the colors are very neutral, leaving the focus only to the person across the table from you!

This reminds me of our first Valentines day, KJ worked until 10pm, so I had the table set and had a small dinner prepared when he came home. Dinner with your loved one doesn't have to be extravagant to be special. What makes it special, is that what you are doing together comes from the heart.

Using our wedding china, gives the table a special and personal touch. 

The sad truth is that I may put out nice glasses, but my husband would prefer a can of diet coke! Oh well! It is the thought that counts,

The candles in the middle add an extra touch without blocking too much of the view like large flowers would.

I encourage you to have an at home dinner date! Put your creative cap on and think of the things that having meaning to you and your significant other and use them on the table. This helps set the tone and makes the table unique to you and not generic like a restaurant table.

  1. Love this. So often I find that our little family is eating dinner in front of the tv (something I said I'd NEVER do!). Having dinner at the table with no distractions allows for connections and true conversations!
