I cannot believe February is already here! A couple of years ago, I started a tradition of hosting a GALentine’s Party for some of my friends to gather and giggle. This year, I have been planning the same party but did not anticipate the dust bowl we are living in now because of all of the construction going on upstairs. It is presently a daily battle. Based on that and a few other schedule conflicts, I decided I would have to postpone the idea until next year. However, I could not resist creating a table setting for the occasion. So, today, I am sharing a Blush Pink and White Valentine’s Day Tablescape with a few easy ideas to create a lovely tablescape for the romantic day.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared a post of this Easy and Elegant Inexpensive Centerpiece for the new year. For this table setting, I decided to use the same concept and only changed out the flowers.
Blush Pink and White Valentine’s Day Tablescape
Blush pink is one of my favorite tones of pink and I love using it for Valentine’s Day. It all started when I found these adorable Blush Pink Verona Tumblers. I had planned to use them for the water glasses but switched gears and decided to use them for the vases for the flower arrangements.
All of the flowers and greenery were purchased from my local grocery store to keep costs in check. Creating several smaller arrangements can be a very cost-effective way to create a lot of drama on a table.
Additionally, using Dollar Store cylinder vases with floating candles was very inexpensive and can be used year-round. Candlelight is a must for any romantic table setting!
When creating multiple smaller arrangements, allow yourself to put them together randomly. They don’t need to be identical. It adds a lovely texture to the centerpiece.
When I found the blush pink glassware, I also stumbled onto these gorgeous placemats. The material and the fringe reminded me of a Chanel Blazer I had years ago (unfortunately, it doesn’t fit me anymore…insert sad face!). So elegant and classy!
For a monochromatic look, I chose these Rose Gold Matte Chargers to provide a subtle foundation for the plates. I absolutely LOVE the matte finish! They are on clearance now at Pier1 for only $2.48 each!
Since the border of the plate is so delicate and fancy, I decided to use a very simple salad plate so that the design of the dinner plate could stand out.
For the napkins, I used white so it wouldn’t compete with the beautiful plates. A clean white napkin is so classic. Since the napkins are so simple, I wanted to do something special with them. Pinterest to the rescue!! How cute are these bows?!
If you have been following me for any length of time, you know that I love mixing my glassware. For some reason, vintage pieces feel romantic to me. For this table setting, I am featuring our vintage blush Rosaline glasses for water. Our Riedel Stemless crystal glasses are a go-to for us for wine.
These vintage champagne flutes belonged to one of my precious grandmothers. She was a hopeless romantic and was madly, deeply in love with my grandfather for her entire life (which sadly ended when she was 103!). I love using her glasses for occasions such as this!
Hopefully, there are a few ideas to help you create a similar romantic setting for your loved ones or group of gals. This tablescape would also be great for Easter or Mother’s Day!! What are your plans for Valentine’s Day??
