Valentine Tablescape Ideas

Valentine Tablescape Ideas

Be creative—set your table using mix & match items that you already own. Simply adding a red (or pink) heart-shaped doily off to one side of my black chargers created a festive touch for less than $2. Don’t miss the tiny little silver overlay heart on the sides of the antique compotes, a super way to carry out the theme of love.

Mix antique pieces with modern for an interesting effect, such as these black acrylic chargers.

Use bold colored linens to create a dramatic (& seductive) atmosphere. Pictured here are a white tablecloth with a black & white doily. Red napkins peaking out from under the white plate punctuates the color scheme.

Short, compact centerpieces focus your attention on the each other, the wine, foods, candles & music. A $4 bunch of mini-carnations plus a few snips from shrubs in my yard & place in an antique milk glass rose bowl created a one-of-a-kind centerpiece.
