Valentines Day Dinner, Love and Chocolate – a Marriage Made in Heaven!

Saffron Marigold - Updated: January 10, 2018

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
Charles M. Schulz

It goes without saying—where there’s chocolate, there’s love, and where there is love there is chocolate! I honestly can’t imagine a sweeter combination for your Valentine’s Day dinner. Or brunch. Or breakfast. Okay, it’s true… I’m trying to work chocolate into each meal of the day! Our rich cocoa and cream linens will certainly inspire delectable romance at whichever time of the day you choose to use them.

This print is inspired by the marriage of rich bittersweet chocolate and sweet and creamy vanilla swirls. The deep tones can be dressed up with metallics or brightened with vivid bursts of color. A truly versatile print, you’ll find your hospitality inspired by it again and again.

On a table such as “For the Love of Chocolate”, and for Valentine’s Day, we had to insert a little sparkle. The coppery glow from this subtle, geometric piece will fit in perfectly with the warm atmosphere you’re creating.

I caution you, just like plucking the perfect treat from a box of chocolates, it will be hard to choose which you want more.

It’s been so fun to look for desserts to serve atop our chocolate inspired tablecloth. What could be more appropriate than sheer Chocolate Decadence?!

A box of chocolates is almost a requirement for Valentine’s Day. Or maybe it isn’t, but we want one anyhow, right? (Especially from a classic chocolatier, such as See’s!)
