Today I am so excited to be joining the most amazing group of bloggers for the Styled + Set Blog Tour: Valentine’s Day Entertaining! This wonderful tour is hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm (thank you Lory!) and features 30 bloggers sharing decorating ideas and inspiration for Valentine’s Day. There will be 6 bloggers a day, for 5 days, so check back during the week to see all the inspiration! And if you are coming here from The French Garden House, welcome! I am so glad to have you here.
Today I’m sharing a simple Valentine’s themed tablescape. I don’t know about any of you, but my husband and I have rarely gone out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. It’s crowded, and over-priced, and usually he’s working a regular day so it just isn’t realistic for us. But since I love to set a pretty table, we often try to have a romantic dinner at home. But this year, I thought it would be fun to do a table that is set for a sweet little dinner party. This would be perfect for four people, or it could work for just one couple as well. Either way, you can eat good food, not feel rushed, and linger over wine and conversation as long as you want since no one else is waiting for your table!
Last week I happened upon these gorgeous very pale pink tulips, and that is what set the tone for my table. I wanted it to be subtle pinks, with very little red. A sophisticated feel, but still fun enough for the holiday.
The little white pitcher is reproduction ironstone from Pottery Barn – I just love it!
The centerpiece is simply a trifle bowl filled with various red and pink Valentine candies.
I didn’t want to spend a lot, but I did hit up the dollar section at Target – score! They had such cute things for Valentine’s Day this year! This water bottle and hobnail glasses are from there. I just love the color.
One thing I love about decorating for the holidays is bringing out things you haven’t seen in awhile. This little pedestal plate is just that. I probably haven’t used it in 5 or 6 years!
But it had just the right amount of pink and it looked perfect on my dessert buffet with the other white cake plates.
The cute wine glasses with the rose gold edge are on sale at Williams Sonoma.
Get the Look!
