Romantic Fireside Valentine's Dinner
Lively lobsters and libations will mark a memorable occasion for close friends during this special evening.
A Warm Welcome
Greet guests with a cozy fireside dinner, inviting all to linger long past the completion of the meal.
Faux coral limbs wrapped with rustic rope around a tall spray of votive candles give just enough nautical flare without interfering with table talk. Use a plant stand to make a wispy floral design of coral-colored roses and sweet-smelling eucalyptus.
Ecru-and-red dish towels imprinted with lobsters hang on the back of each guest’s chair to present a dressier approach to the traditional plastic lobster bib.
Hostess tip: Be inventive when you share your home with friends; it’s much more personal than dining in a restaurant and will bring friends closer together in a more comfortable environment.
