A French Provencal Valentine’s Day At Home!

As you guys might know, it’s our first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple, so we’re going all out! While we are going to be in NYC for Fashion Week on the actual day, we’re making sure to celebrate a bit early with a romantic night in at home. Now, I do love me some hearts and red roses, but this time around I wanted to set up a chic little dinner for the two of us in our new home, with a chic French Provençal theme.

As a new wifey, I’m still perfecting my cooking skills (er…and by perfecting i mean not burn everything!), so I kept the fare simple (but stylish, obvs!) with a yummy charcuterie and cheeseboard, bowls of olives, sun-dried tomatoes and warm ciabatta and red wine (which not only looks gorgeous but is perfect for sharing). I also made Mackenzie’s favorite banana bread, in the shape of hearts to add a little Valentine’s Day touch. I love how romantic this tablescape is without being too obviously “Valentine’s Day”. I’m in love with the French Riviera, so I went for a very Mediterranean palate and setting. The textures were important. Clay pots of lavender, wooden bowls of nibbles, glass tealight holders, a marble and wooden platter, vintage-inspired ceramics, an earthy linen tablecloth and rattan placemats. It ended up feeling like a countryside picnic in the south of France! I had so much fun picking everything out and styling the tablescape.

Mackenzie and I are big believers in thinking outside the box when it comes to celebrating moments like Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. It doesn’t always have to be a fancy dinner out (while that can also be fun on occasion!) – sometimes we have the best time just hanging out the two of us at home watching a silly movie, or even doing a cute picnic in the park. When you’re organizing a date night in like this, it’s great to stick to a theme and draw inspiration for your decor from there. What do you guys think of this French look, and how will you be spending your Valentine’s Day this year? Shop all my favorite pieces for my ideal Valentine’s Day at home for two, here!
