Roses Are Red…

…Violets Are Blue

Blue is often overlooked when it comes to romance, but we would argue that there isn’t much that says true love like this hue. Set the stage with blue pieces and add pops of pink and red via your linens and floral arrangements. Tie a love note around the silverware for an added touch of affection.
