Pink and White Table Setting

Valentine’s Day gives me reason to celebrate my inner girl and bring out the pink!  Pink has been my favorite color for many, many years and I’m happy to say it’s my daughter’s favorite color, too. So in the spirit of Cupid’s holiday, I’ve put together a pink and white table setting. I’m joining fellow bloggers to bring you a week of entertaining. Thanks to Lory at Designthusiasm for organizing the event! And if you’re here from Zevy Joy … welcome!  I love her home and all she creates. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Pink and White Table Setting

 

Normally the first thing I do when creating a tablescape is to decide on a centerpiece. And I try to create a centerpiece that’s different from past table settings. I knew I wanted to do something with flowers, but I also wanted it to be different.

Pink Floral Dishes and a Bowl Full of Flowers Floating on Water

 

My pink and white flowers are floating on water inside a big glass bowl. The beauty of this arrangement is that there’s no arranging!  No need to keep moving stems around until you get it just right. Simply snip the flowers from their stems and let them float.

A floating tea light or two adds a little warmth and romance to my pink and white table setting.

Three bowls of flowers create my Valentine’s Day centerpiece. You can find inexpensive glass bowls at the craft store or your local thrift shop. Since the flowers float, you don’t need as many as you’d need in a regular bouquet (so another cost savings!).

Pink and White Dishes and Flowers for Valentine's Day

The bowls of flowers are perched on pretty floral boxes to give them a bit of height.

I saved money on the table runner, too. It’s Valentine wrapping paper! All you need to do is cut a strip of the paper in the desired width.

My pink and white table setting took a turn when I laid eyes on pretty floral dishes and little flower bowls.They just happened to be located near each other in Home Goods and I thought, “Wouldn’t these look cute together?” Even the lady at the register commented how good they looked together.

And the best part? The flower bowls were just $7.99 for a set of four!

And my dining hutch received a little bit of pink, too.

After all was said and done with my pink and white table setting, I even found a poster of pretty pink and red posies. Perfect!

    Let’s share the love and party together!

  5. Wrapping paper as a table runner – so clever. Lovely table setting.

  6. Your table is so beautiful. Your boxes look so endearing. Along with the flowers, and Oh! Those bowls and plates ❤. I wonder if you have the same problem I have, where to store the Dishes! It can be a problem. I am thinking of your post with the butlers pantry, it’s on my someday wish list. Along with a first floor laundry room. I’ll be over on Saturday for the luncheon. That was an invitation, wasn’t It?

  7. Jennifer I so enjoyed your beautiful pink and white table. The pairing of dish and floral bowl were the prettiest accompaniment to the entire setting! And floating flowers are such a romantic addition with that candlelight. Loved it all…

  8. So pretty Jennifer! I love the floating flowers and candles. I used to do that a long time ago and I had forgotten, so I’m thrilled for the reminder. Love the whole looks so much!

    Hi Jennifer,
    I REALLY loved those beautiful pink bowls from Home Goods and what a price!!!!! I am going to see if they have any more in my neck of the woods at Home Goods. I would eat my cereal, my soup, my fruit, my ice cream and anything else I might fancy to put in them. So, so pretty. The pretty roses in the white pitcher are so life like (you are an amazing photographer) I thought that I almost could smell their scent. You rock, Jennifer!
