Hunter Round Dining Table

The central hub of your home, your dining table, is a place where special memories are made every day. Whether you're enjoying breakfast, lunch, or dinner, create a romantic table setting for your loved ones, and make one more of many special moments over dinner. 

Are you cooking, or being cooked for this Valentine's Day? We've picked out the perfect tableware to add sophistication to any occasion - ideal for creating a romantic atmosphere.


1. How to Dress Your Tabletop

Choosing how to dress your tabletop depends on your style. If you lean towards a neutral theme, we love this Natural Stripe Table Runner; perfect for adding a subtle yet sophisticated look to your tabletop décor. Its natural stripe pattern suits any occasion, whether you're hosting - it's 2.5m so is sure to run the length of your tabletop, or getting ready for a night in! There are matching Natural Stripe Napkins to complete the look, perfectly paired with these wooden napkin rings for a beautifully dressed tabletop.

The hallmark of any Valentine's Day dinner is a candlelit ambience, so don't forget to dress your table with candles. These tealight holders are perfect for adding a romantic glow to your table, casting pretty shadows. If you're going for tapered candles instead, we love these stylish little grey candle holders - fitting with ease into dining rooms of all styles with their understated look, and they will easily fit in a drawer when not in use!


2. How to Choose the Perfect Tableware

Whether you're the chef, or the diner, choosing beautiful tableware for the occasion is always a good idea. Share a special moment over dinner this Valentine's Day with our Stoneware Serving Dish - perfect for salads, pastas, rice, and other sharing dishes. If your dining area is wonderfully rustic, why not pick out this wooden ladle too? Cook up a storm, and place this ladle in a serving bowl to dish up your latest recipe.

For those that love a splash of colour, add these fun pink, sage, and aqua bowls. Everyone needs a set of snack bowls, whether for dips for the main course, nibbles over a tipple, or during movie night. Trust us - they're great for popcorn!
