Beautiful pink tulips are the inspiration for my Pink and Gray Valentine Table that I’ve designed for another installment of our Styled + Set series. Today I join blogging friends to bring you three days worth of beautiful Valentine tables and entertaining ideas. A special thanks to Lory at Designthusiasm for organizing this event.
Ahead of me on today’s tour is the lovely Janet who blogs at Shabbyfufu. I love everything she does and Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday for her, because like me, she adores the color pink!
For days I considered what my table setting for cupid’s holiday would look like and wasn’t finding the inspiration I needed. But as luck would have it, I walked in the front door of Fresh Market and was greeted with the scent and sight of beautiful spring bulbs in an array of colors! It’s then that I decided to create a Pink and Gray Valentine Table.
A feminine bottle of Cote des Roses provides a touch of pink in my Waterford crystal stemware. This is a very dry rose wine by Gerard Bertrand in coastal southern France. The bottom of the bottle is shaped like a rose. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
So back to those tulips! I tucked them inside a wooden crate to lend just a touch of rustic appeal to my Pink and Gray Valentine Table. This then led to using my wood chargers to tie the table setting all together.
I found fringed, light gray napkins. Rather than purchase napkin rings, I used the cloth ribbon that came wrapped around each bundle of napkins. I cut the ribbon in six equal pieces and tied each one around the napkin with a single-stem tulip.
Even my little pig figurine got dressed for the occasion with a pretty pink bow – you can see her in the background on the cabinet.
The wooden crate holding the tulips is a cigar box. Next Monday I’m sharing a special Valentine’s gift craft using smaller cigar boxes. A local wine and beverage store sells the empty cigar boxes for $1.50 each. Some are pretty fancy!
Pink and gray are such a perfect color match – do you agree?
Here’s a little video I made to share on my Facebook page. Enjoy!
Be sure to visit the rest of my friends below for more pretty table settings and entertaining ideas. Only today’s links are live, but you can come back tomorrow and Wednesday for updated links each day! Next up on today’s tour is Kelly at My Soulful Home. You might remember that I featured her book, “A Year in Flowers,” back in August.
