This tablescape started with the quilt. I wanted something different…something I’ve never used before. I thought about buying some pretty pink placemats or napkins, but decided to try and design this tablescape with things I already had. This quilt is usually hanging on my blanket ladder or covering up Kelly on the couch, (Don’t worry…I washed it before I put it on the table!) I can’t believe I never tried it as a runner before. I think it’s perfect.

Since the quilt is blue and white, I stuck to those basic colors for the place settings and flower vessels. My only touches of Valentine’s Day are the tiny pops of pink. I used one pink tulip in each mason jar and tied a pink ribbon around the flatware. I also made a coffee cake in my new heart baking dish that I’m absolutely in love with. I’ll be sharing the coffee cake recipe next week and also hope to make a sugar cookie cake as well.

You’ve seen the stemware and glasses before but I don’t believe I’ve ever used them together. The stemware is my wedding crystal and the glasses came from my in-laws. I think they make a perfect pair.

I picked up the ivory roses and tulips at the grocery store. (Click HERE to see my tips for arranging grocery store flowers.) Three roses, one pink tulip, and a sprig of seeded eucalyptus went into three vintage mason jars and I was finished in about ten minutes. Flowers in mason jars are pretty much a no-fail way to make a centerpiece. Anyone can do this!

To sum things up: Farmhouse Inspired Valentine’s Day Tablescape Ideas you can use anytime!

  • Use what you have. If the colors aren’t exactly right, add small accessories in the color of the season. In this case, I added pink for Valentine’s Day.
  • Think outside the box when it comes to table linens. Consider using throws, quilts, blankets, scarves, sheets, etc.
  • Invest in a very basic set of cloth napkins in a neutral color. 
  • Get grocery store flowers and design a very simple centerpiece. 
  • Go ahead and mix styles. Combine vintage crystal with new flatware. Use new napkins with a vintage runner or tablecloth. Mix metals and textures for added interest.

  14. I love the quilt as it looks on the table with all the dishes and the simple and elegant decorations. Is it pre-treated to not stain? Can that be done with a vintage quilt without harming it? I’ve never yet had a dinner party where someone hasn’t spilled something on the tablecloth or runner and it’s not easy to get the stains out. I would hate to ruin a beautiful quilt in this way. The only time I’ve seen a quilt used during dinner was when it had a big piece of plastic covering the whole of it!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      No…the quilt isn’t treated with anything. I use my vintage quilts all the time. Inside the house and even outside on my porch. If someone spilled, I would do my best to get the stain out of the quilt and leave it at that!

    I think this is a beautiful tablescape! Love the non-traditional blues, with just the touches of pink. I also love the design of your chargers. That’s a style/pattern I’ve not seen before and they remind me of reclaimed corbels. Just lovely! All of it!

    First of all, Ann, your first paragraph made me smile! I so enjoy our friendship and the bloggers I’ve met or become friends with are among the delightful surprises I never expected from blogging… :-) I’m also loving this tablescape! Love the quilt and the mason jar centerpieces and the touches of pink work perfectly with the blue. A lovely prelude into spring…

  21. Taryn Whiteaker says:

  26. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love it!

  27. Your table setting and flowers are lovely.

  28. I love a beautiful table setting. We are in the process of adding a dining room addition onto our house. I inherited some beautiful china, tablecloths, crystal, etc. from my in-laws and can hardly wait to have a dining room and use these things. Seeing all these beautiful tablescapes has really inspired me. Cannot wait to get the table out of the kitchen and into a proper dining space. I love flowers in mason jars. The tulip/rose combo is just beautiful.
