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.
