12 Jan Valentine’s Day Tablescape: Recreate This Pink and White Look
Love is in the air! I absolutely loved styling this blush pink and white Valentine’s Day tablescape. For this look, I embraced all the classics from hearts to roses to candles.
I’ve been getting extra excited for holidays lately because they’re something to celebrate that can’t be canceled — and Valentine’s Day is no exception! This table would be amazing for a fun brunch, especially since February 14th falls on a Sunday this year. It would also be lovely for a romantic dinner, Galentine’s Day party with your favorite girlfriends or a drinks and dessert only soiree.
I’m breaking down everything you need and all my entertaining hacks for recreating it at home. Hope you find some inspiration for your party!
Heart to Heart
Incorporate hearts into your tablescape design. I grabbed these light pink heart-shaped melamine plates from Target for only $3 each. As an alternative to festive plates, add a heart-shaped cookie or Valentine card on top of each place setting or fill a few heart-shaped bowls with pink and red candy to achieve a similar look.
Colorful Cloth Napkins
Bright napkins are a great way to layer more color into your table. I went with hot pink so it would pop against the white linen tablecloth. If you don’t own cloth napkins, you should absolutely invest in some. There are so many good reasons to make the switch from paper: they’re better for the environment and they add major personality to your table. You can use them for other decorative purposes, too, like lining the bread basket.
Everything’s Coming Up Roses
Roses are practically a requirement for a Valentine’s Day tablescape. I went with shades of pink instead of red because I wanted the vibe to be fun and girly. One of my favorite tricks for an elegant table is to line the table with bud vases (mine are from Hobby Lobby). You only need one or two stems in each vase, so you can save on cost and it makes a huge impact. It’s also much easier to talk across the table when you keep the centerpiece decor long and low. As I’m sure you know, florists always hike up prices around Valentine’s Day, so check out carnations if you’re looking for a more inexpensive option.
I scattered little plastic hearts from Hobby Lobby across the table for an extra Valentine’s Day touch. There are so many great thematic items you could use to recreate this, such as the classic conversation hearts candy, Dove heart-shaped chocolate or paper heart cut-outs.
Pretty in Pink Candles
A table just isn’t complete without candles! Colorful candles can bring so much warmth to holiday tablescapes. I’ve had these pink tapers for a while and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use them! I also nabbed these very affordable votive candleholders from Dollar Tree. They’re more of an amber tone, but when paired with lots of pink you can barely tell.
Serve Valentine-inspired treats whether they’re store-bought or homemade. I used this adorable mini heart-shaped waffle maker for a Valentine’s Day brunch and served the waffles with fresh fruit. V-Day is the perfect time to use another one of my favorite hacks: buy a heart-shaped cookie cutter and use it to cut whatever you’re making. I love using them for tea sandwiches, fruit, cheese and brownies.
