You've probably been thinking about your Valentine's Day dinner for a while now. Maybe you even have a menu all planned out. But have you given any thought to the setting? A romantic, rustic farmhouse dinner is the perfect way to set the mood for a special evening.
Luckily, Laughing Moose Gifts has everything you need to create the perfect farmhouse vibe. With our selection of handcrafted products, you can add a touch of Americana to your table and set the stage for a romantic night you'll never forget.
Selecting the Table Linens for a Rustic Look
You've decided that this year's Valentine's Day dinner will have a rustic farmhouse vibe. Great choice! To set the scene, start by selecting the perfect table linens.
For a rustic look, go for tablecloths with a simple design or a checked pattern. Stay away from lace and frills, as these will give the table an overly feminine look. Instead, opt for textured fabrics like cotton or burlap to create a more rustic feel.
If you're having trouble finding the right tablecloth, try making your own! This is a great way to add a personal touch to your evening and really make it special. There are plenty of tutorials online that can show you how to make a tablecloth from scratch. Just make sure to choose a fabric that will complement your other table linens.
Once you've found the perfect tablecloth, it's time to move on to the rest of your table setting. Select napkins, placemats and a table runner that will fit with your rustic theme.
Bring the Outdoors Inside With Nature-Inspired Centerpieces
Centerpieces are a key part of any Valentine's Day table setting, but it can be tough to find the right vibe. You don't want something too cutesy or too stuffy, and you definitely don't want something that clashes with the rustic farmhouse style you're going for.
Take a cue from nature and go for centerpieces that are inspired by the outdoors. Think flowers, branches, fruits and vegetables. Not only will they look beautiful on your table, but they'll also bring the fresh, natural scent of the outdoors inside.
Incorporating Candles for a Soft Glow
Soft candlelight is the perfect way to set the mood for a romantic Valentine's dinner. It creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, while also lending a touch of elegance.
If you're looking to create a rustic farmhouse vibe, then consider incorporating candles into your decor. There are many different types of candles that would work well for this look, but we recommend choosing candles that are made of natural materials like beeswax or soy wax. Not only will they help to create the right atmosphere, but they'll also smell amazing!
Add some Mason jars and candleholders to the table to create ambiance. For a rustic feel, choose candleholders made from wood or metal, and opt for candles with a natural or rustic look.
For all of the warmth and ambiance, but without the flame, try out our candle warmers. The bulb in our candle warmer melts the candle, in just a few hours, as it sits in our unique metal rack giving a scent without any open flame.
Finishing Touches to Wow Your Guests
Now that you have the basic elements of your farmhouse-style Valentine's dinner set, it's time to add some finishing touches! To complete the look, add some fun farmhouse-inspired decorations to the table. This could include anything from fresh flowers to vintage scales. Just let your imagination run wild!
So this Valentine's Day, why not create an unforgettable evening with your loved one? With the perfect rustic farmhouse vibe, you can make your table look great and feel even better. With Laughing Moose Gifts, you'll have everything you need to set the perfect scene.
