Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is only one week away? Today I am so excited to join in on the Valentine’s Day Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely and talented Chloe, from Celebrate and Decorate. This week-long blog hop is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for some Valentine’s Day inspiration. I hope you enjoy my casual red and white Valentine’s Day table and then head on over to the links at the end of this post to see all the different looks created for Valentine’s Day tables!

As a wife, mom, and elementary school teacher, I love February. It is a month that is all about showing love and care to others. One way I show my family love is by creating beautiful places for us to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Adding some classic pops of bright red and white help to create this casual and family-friendly Valentine’s Day table.


You don’t need to spend a lot of money to create a festive table.  This table was so much fun to put together. When deciding what to use, I simply took inventory of what I had.  Purchasing grocery-store flowers or scrapbook paper is a great way to add color and a personal touch without spending a great deal of money.

I began with a classic white runner that I found at a flea market while visiting Martha’s Vineyard. I added vibrant red tulips in an ironstone pitcher that I had found at a tag sale.  Some treasured milkglass pieces that had belonged to my grandmother bring texture and pops of white. These meaningful, vintage items bring personality to the table. My favorite white hydrangeas enhance the red and white theme.  Glittery hearts from Hobby Lobby add a festive, whimsical touch.


For the place settings, I created layers beginning with jute round placemats.  These placemats add timeless natural texture to the table. Layered on top are silver chargers and white dinner plates, all from Dollar Tree.  The dinner plates are topped with casual red napkins from Sur La Table and cute little heart-shaped baking dishes I had picked up at Michael’s a few years ago.

Each place setting has a little heart that I cut out from scrapbook paper. It’s fun to leave little Valentine messages my husband and children.



Of course, Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats to share.  On my side table, I created a small vignette in front of my DIY Farmhouse Shutter Wall Art. Simple cupcakes from The Fresh Market are waiting to be enjoyed!


How are you planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day? I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Hi Lynne,you’ve set a very sweet table for the holiday. I am a vintage and antique dealer, and those old linens are one of our specialties, so that’s naturally a draw for my eye. I love using the old linens, and seeing them used. Tulips are such a welcome and cheerful sight this time of year too. It’s lovely to make your acquaintance through Chloe’s hop this week.

  2. Lynne, it is so nice to meet you! I love your classic red and white tablescape with the pretty red tulips taking center stage. Your collection of treasured milk glass adds a perfect vintage element to your tabletop. Glittery hearts and hand-cut hearts make a sweet table for your family! Happy Valentine’s Day and it is a pleasure to blog hop with you this week!

  3. This is so cute. I love that you used the heart accented scrapbook paper to make your own hearts and create a message on them. Red tulips are beautiful and with the white pitcher they created the perfect touch. I like the textures you chose and of course the color red which is a favorite color for me!

  4. Lynne, I love the use of your white milk glass pitcher, candleholders and vase. It always brings to mind a relaxed feeling in the country, especially when you also used some beautiful tulips as your centerpiece. Your sun-drenched photo of your decorated buffet is very lovely too. I love the way the light streams on your wreath and cupcakes. (They look so delicious.) Your white lacy runner is so delicate and the contrast with the rattan(?) placemats is a wonderful choice. Beauty is simplicity. A breath of fresh air in the countryside at Valentine’s Day. Have an enjoyable time.

  5. As a baker, I have always just thought of using the small dishes from Michaels for baking. Silly me! Thank you for the inspiration and luckily they don’t cost a fortune. The milk glass pieces are timeless and add to the warmth of your table.

  6. I really do love classic red and white for Valentine’s Day. Your table is lovely! Happy to be joining you on the hop this week! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  7. Lynne, what a sweetheart of a table! And, so heartwarming with the addition of the milk glass pieces that belonged to your grandmother.

  11. Lynne, I love your red and white tablescape and to find your white ironstone pitcher at a tag sale for your red tulips is a perfect fit. Your milk glass is a treasure from your grandmother. It is simple yet elegant. I am sure your table being family friendly has a lot to do with your talents as an elementary teacher, Some of my fondest memories are of craft time at school as my teacher taught me/us how to make holiday decor. I know that is where my desire for decorating originated. I am really digging your napkins from Sur La Tab and I adore the heart shaped dishes from Michaels. Thank you for joining us again on this blog hop…it is such fun to see the inspiration from such great bloggers.
