Be BOLD with Black

Be BOLD and dramatic using black accents on your Valentine table.  We started with a red tablecloth, then added a black charger, white dinner plate and a red heart shaped salad plate.  The luscious cupcake, as well as our red napkins, is wrapped with a black, lacy-looking cupcake wrapper (available from Oriental Trading).   A black napkin (yes, it's okay to have more than one napkin) rests in the beverage glass, and frosted scatter stones tossed around the setting add a wintry look.  Our place/name cards are simple, glittery, inexpensive mini picture frames, and we added a touch of whimsy with a tiny beaded heart box.  Consider elevating your cupcakes — we used a glass candleholder only two inches high, but oh, what a statement!!   

The perfect Valentine cupcake?   Red Velvet with Cream Cheese icing.
