Welcome to another edition of our Styled & Set Entertaining Series hosted by Lory from Designthusiasm. Lory is also the brains behind our Home Style Saturdays feature. Even though we have never met in person, she’s such a good friend and I’m happy she invites me to hang out with her. All the other links on the tour will be at the end of the post. If you are coming over from StoneGable, welcome! Now on to some farmhouse inspired Valentine’s Day tablescape ideas.
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.
