A Soft & Simple Valentine’s Day Table

A centerpiece of soft pink roses combined with charming heart shaped dishes creates the perfect soft and simple Valentine’s table setting.

Since my husband and I don’t typically go out to a fancy dinner, Valentine’s Day gives me a chance to create something special for us at home. And for the last couple of years, that’s what I’ve done. If the kids are out or have plans, I set a pretty table and make a special dinner. And if the kids are home, then I just make it a bigger table! Either way, it’s nice to make a little extra effort to make it feel like more than an average night.

And although this year I did use pink roses, roses definitely aren’t required! In fact, last year I set a Valentine’s table with tulips, and I’ve used hydrangeas before, too. Of course, I want it to look pretty, but I want it to be simple and easy, too.

For some reason I really wanted to use soft pinks this year, and I had it in my head that I would get faded pink roses. Good thing Trader Joe’s had just the color I wanted! Pink roses combined with some white flowers and eucalyptus creates a pretty but simple centerpiece.

To finish it off, I added the pink hobnail candleholders and more eucalyptus scattered along the table.

I immediately knew I would use these Pottery Barn “Love” plates that I bought last year. They’re so cute, and I didn’t get a chance to use them then, so I’m glad to be able to this year!

A simple clear glass vase lets the flowers really shine.

I love layering the napkin between the plates for a more unique look, and of course, pink linen was perfect!  The color is so pretty, and they could easily work for Easter or even a spring dinner party.

Layering plates is something I love to do, so I almost always use a charger. Originally I was going to use a gold charger, but it just seemed too bright and too much.

So I switched to the white chargers, and I love that they keep it a little more simple, and less ‘fancy’ than the gold would have.

Pink hobnail glass candleholders add color and charm to the table. I love the greyish-green of the eucalyptus mixed with the soft pinks – such a pretty combo!

And of course, you have to serve rosè! I mean if the table is pink, the wine should be too, right?! 😉

It’s not often that I use a tablecloth, but this romantic setting just seemed to call for it! This is a simple white cotton version, but white linen would be lovely as well. The brass candlesticks on the buffet are a mix of vintage finds and Pottery Barn.

I hope this gave you some ideas for how to create your own simple Valentine’s Day table! Some pretty flowers along with greenery and some touches of pink makes for a table that feels elevated and special, but is so easy to create!
