Romantic Table Settings and Flower Arrangements

Cool Idea: Romantic Floral Votives

I just returned from a whirlwind three-day trip to North Carolina to learn about Shaw Floors' new line for HGTV Home. The first evening of the trip, I attended a dinner in the charming courtyard of Deerpark Restaurant, located in a historic barn designed by Richard Morris Hunt on the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. The scene was absolutely romantic with twinkling string lights wrapped around the trees and gorgeous tablescapes at each round table.

While the use of small carpet remnants as table runners was quite cute for the occasion, I probably won't be replicating the look at home. But I did fall head over heels for the romantic fruit and floral votives at each table. Orchids, anchored by glass beads, and citrus were slipped into clear glass cylindric vases of staggering heights, which were then filled with water. A floating candle was lit on top of each vase, and small tealights were scattered around the table for a truly unforgettable display. I can't wait for my next dinner party, so I can replicate this look!
