Table for 2, 3, 4, however many lovebirds will be joining you, you’ll want to check out this whimsical Valentines table. True to form I always try and decorate with a few natural, organic pieces and a little DIY (Valentines always needs a little ‘made from the heart’ DIY). I really had fun with this table’s lovely hue’s of pink, red and white. Fresh flowers (has to be roses for Valentines, right?) as the center piece beautifully tying it all together. All the wonderful cheery colors in a cold winter season is such a brilliant way to pick your mood up. Love the Love!
I love the colors in this flower bunch. If this doesn’t scream Happy Love Day I don’t know what does. I was able to run to my local market for a great selection of pink roses, pink berries and white flowers. I really felt like this bouquet brought life to this table. I put the flowers in a vase I had from my wedding. Talk about getting sentimental but on the National day of Love, why not remember the day I married my love. Here is a hint to placing flower stems in a vase: I put small bunch of floral green beads (I went with green so they blend with the stems,) at the bottom of my vase first. I then cut the bottom of the stems off to the desired height. I placed them in the vase with the floral beads holding my flowers in place, this way I could step back and really get a feel for the shape and design of my bouquet. I then added water to my vase, my floral beads remaining at the bottom of the vase. Topped it off adding a pea green silk ribbon layered with a pastel pink mesh ribbon.
First I want to start with my Valentine DIY table runner. I made this with my daughter and we had a blast coming up with our pattern and then painting it on. I love when you decorate with meaningful pieces that will remind you of fond memories on any given day. I chose to buy a eco friendly craft paper roll (needed more for our craft room so win, win) in brown. We then decided to paint our XOXO design on with white acrylic paint and medium paint brushes. I loved how it turned out, complimenting the brighter shades with its neutral shade. Most of all I love the way it was made.
I heart these plates….literally! Here is where my whimsical inspiration comes in; I alternated with two different heart plates, two different jute place mats, ( braided and medallion woven place mat) and using some mason jars as glassware. I stayed neutral and organic with many pieces here: place mats are made from jute material, the natural color also compliments the table runner. My ceramic heart plates in romantic pink (left picture up top) go strikingly well with my rose sear suckered napkins. I used a biodegradable, eco friendly (gotta give some love to mother earth) palm leaf heart dish, pictured in the top left picture. The wood look really pairs nicely with the jute place mats and table runner for a simple, natural look. To continue with our whimsical but natural theme I found these unique, eco friendly Birchware fork and knife utensils.
Sweets, treats, and cupcakes who needs a sugar rush? Conversation hearts and chocolate goes with Valentines like peanut butter goes with jelly. I filled my heart bowls, sugar jars, and cupcake stand with all things Yum!!
I added some love to my buffet as well. I layered table runners here for texture. My first table runner; a neutral burlap table runner matching my DIY table runner. Next I placed my vibrant red lace table runner on top of the neutral one for a good balance. I placed my sugar corner on one end of the buffet and a ‘LOVE’ sign on the other. Then I took some cute faux birch sticks tied with red and white twine.
Here is a total view of my Whimsical Valentine table. Now just need to figure whats for dinner?? Let me know what you all think! Would love to see all your sweetheart tables!
Happy Valentines!! xoxo
