A Garden Valentine's Day Set for Two

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Whether it's spending time with your love or with your bestie on Valentine's Day, make it a special evening with a pretty tablescape set for two! Imagine wining and dining with your favorite dish and spending hours chatting under the stars. It's dreamy, magical, and very easy to achieve! 

For today's look, I really wanted to create a dreamy garden table setting that was very budget friendly. To dress up a small dining table or desk, a velvet table runner will amp things up beautifully. No worries if your table isn't in tip top shape. There are many affordable fabric tablecloths at Target or you can visit a local fabric store, such as Joann's, to purchase 4-5 yards of linen or ivory muslin to lay over your table. 

For the flowers, I deconstructed these faux blooms and stems to create mini flower arrangements. You can pair bouquets of 2 or 3 blooms at a time and hot glue them onto a bed of petals. To keep things secure,  I hand sewed them onto the velvet ribbon using pink thread.

Style Tip: To keep your eye drawn to the whole look from top to bottom, keep the ribbon long enough to drape gorgeously alongside the table. A small wrapped bouquet of fresh lavender or your favorite flowers in the center of the table, makes the perfect topper to this garden themed look. 

Another way to add pretty elements is to find plates and wine glasses with texture and patterns. I love the idea of each person having a different plate with a unique pattern or border, making it more personalized. These dinner plates were purchased on sale at Anthropologie and the gold rimmed blush wine glasses are still available at Marshall's for $4 each. There are lots of affordable options out there for dinnerware and you don't have to spend a fortune to collect quality pieces.  

We have lights strung along the oaks trees in our backyard, so when the sun goes down, the whole look will be very dreamy and picturesque. Oh what a lovely night it will be! Valentine's Day is all about spending time with the people you love and care for. So, make it memorable in a space you made with love. If the weather isn't ideal where you live, this table setting can easily be set up indoors. Add cute twinkling lights and a candle or two and you're set to go! Wouldn't this also be perfect for a Valentine's Day brunch?! So many possibilities! 

I hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day and I can't wait to chat with you again soon! xo

Warmly ~
