Romantic Fireside Valentine's Dinner
Lively lobsters and libations will mark a memorable occasion for close friends during this special evening.
Create an intimate setting by bringing guests to your living room or study.
This portable dining table can seat up to eight. To make the tabletop, use a 48-inch-square, precut piece of plywood found at home supply stores, and cover it with felt using a staple gun. Use a smaller pedestal table or card table underneath for support.
Cover the table with heavy craft paper to allow for easy cleanup. To fit the 48-inch table, simply glue together two 5-foot pieces of 30-inch paper. Lay it over a pressed, white linen tablecloth, and crease the surrounding edges tightly for a sophisticated bistro look.
Hostess tip: Portable tabletops and pretty folding chairs can store easily and be moved around the house to create an instant dining area anytime, anywhere. Square tops allow hosts to increase table length to suit the number of guests.
