Lace, roses, candle, beautiful china, crystal, silver and a single rose laid casually on a plate. What more do you need besides a good bottle of red wine to share on a cold winter night. Casually gathered, this setting is ready to be enjoyed with conversation and a warm fire.

“Wine enters through the mouth,
Love, the eyes.
I raise the glass to my mouth,
I look at you,
I sigh.”
~ William Butler Yeats

The dessert plates are covered in pink flowers with scalloped edges to soften the lines. Sterling silver dessert forks in Wallace’s “Rose Point” pattern rest ready on the plates in preparation for a sweet dessert. A beautiful rose will be offered as a token of love and affection.

“A rose speaks of love silently in a language known only to the heart.” Anonymous

Mikasa crystal wine glasses will be filled with a lovely red wine from the Biltmore Estate. Beautiful pink and red roses act as a backdrop and set the scene for a quiet evening with the one you love best. Favorite books line the shelves suggesting topics for exploration and discussion.

We’ll light the candle, pour the wine and enjoy this quiet interlude together.

“You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.”
Sam Keen
