The look: Deborah Dean Pawlik and Richard Pawlik, the co-owners of the Gore Dean boutique in Baltimore wanted a romantic theme with a splash of color but not too much. "Sometimes if you use too much color, then the food doesn't look good," Deborah Pawlik warned. "I like to mix and match really inexpensive chargers with something more formal," she added. The menu: Prosciutto and melon; steakhouse Caesar salad; veal piccatta; potatoes lyonnaise; haricots vert. Where to get it: Orange presentation plate; Annieglass Roman antique plate; Michael Wainwright platinum charger; Alain Saint Joanis flatware; Richard Ginori champagne flute and wineglass; Royal Scot red goblet; and Dempsey & Carroll menu card. All available at Gore Dean.
