How to Set Your Table for a Romantic Dinner


1. Enjoy dinner by candlelight for a warm ambience

Set the table and the mood for a delicious and special dinner with candles that add a twinkle to the conversation. Our selection of decorative candle holders and storm lanterns includes centrepieces to fit every size and shape of atmosphere-setting candle.

2. Floral table centrepieces add a touch of colour

Freshly picked from the garden (or the florist), add a touch of colour to your table with a bouquet of flowers - but not so tall that it blocks the view of your other half!

3. Add Tablecloths & Napkins to bring extra sophistication

Make a meal of it by layering table linens to create a vibrant setting full of colour come rain or shine. Not necessarily something you use for your every day dining, a specially-chosen tablecloth will elevate your date night table to help create something more special.


4. “Cheers!” to a great date night

If you’re truly looking to mark the occasion with your partner, there’s no better way than opening a bottle of your joint favourite tipple and sharing a toast. It’s the perfect excuse to use some beautifully elegant glassware!
