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.)
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.
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!).
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!
White lace napkins get tied with pink grosgrain ribbon and my milk white tumblers came out to join the party.
My book page heart wreath is still hanging in the window.
And my dining hutch received a little bit of pink, too.
Sweet pink roses.
And pink tulips in the other corner of the dining room.
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!
