A red tablecloth or cover is a classic and versatile choice for dressing up your table. Red cloths will work well for Valentine's day, romantic events like Anniversaries and also for Christmas and the holiday season. Buying a red tablecloth means you'll have more than just the one occasion to use it each year.
Red too is a lovely middle ground color which will hide any mishaps or spills with the red wine and also not show stains quite so prominently as a light color cloth would. So it's also a practical choice for your home.
For dressing your table up further, choose colors for placemats, coasters and table accessories that will work well with red but also stand out. Black would make a very bold and dramatic pairing with red. For a soft and romantic theme, add in some ivory white table accessories like candles and a small flower arrangement.

Use Heart Confetti
If you only have a plain tablecloth or you want to cut back on your spending for Valentine's Day this year, why not try using Heart Shaped Confetti to dress your table instead?
Confetti is so inexpensive to buy and comes in a large range of styles, sizes and colors too. It will quickly set the theme just by scattering it around your table. For a stylish look, just sprinkle heart confetti around glasses, candles or centerpieces on your table.
Other inexpensive ways to dress your table for Valentine's include making up your own heart-shaped place or name tags if you're feeling crafty.
