A Candlelit Fireside Dinner for Two with touches of damask and bling

Happy Wednesday. Today I have another lovely romantic photo shoot to share with you. Continuing with the Wedding Vendor Challenges, Lissahn of Enraptured Events joins us today with a beautiful table for two in front or a roaring fireplace, which she says was an important detail for her since it's cold outside. And, wait until you see her napkin fold - it's a heart shape!!! And, the beautiful calligraphy on the menus is by Distinctive Inscriptions Calligraphy along with photography by The Studio B Photography. Lissahn writes that she has been “itching” to do that particular napkin fold and this vendor challenge was the "prime opportunity". As Lissahn writes . . . "February is all about love and falling in love, so I wanted to ensure that the table represented that without being over bearing with flowers but just enough to add the touch of romance and elegance. I used the upside down wine glasses because wine is often a part of a great meal. Also, I wanted to make it where anyone could afford to put it together and many of us can get a dozen roses and a few wine glasses. With the colors being fuchsia and black, it made it easy to incorporate Valentine's Day but I didn’t want to do solid pink and black, so I used a damask pattern that added a little bit of brightness against the two dark colors."

And, I had to end with a close-up of the amazing heart napkin fold - don't you just love it? I also love the texture of the napkin, so fancy.
