Whether using goodies from your cupboard or thrifting, now is the perfect time to have some fun. Let these ideas inspire you.

Love is the whole thing. We are only pieces.


Valentines Table Decor 

Of course, it’s important to show love to your people year-round, but sometimes life gets in the way, and it’s okay to schedule it.

Valentine’s day is a fantastic opportunity! Not only is it a day about LOVE (what could be better than that?), but the colors, decor, and fanfare are the best.

So let’s stay home and make things unique with a charming table and some delicious food.

Place Setting Ideas

I selected some bold red pieces to set the table for two.

Your table may be more serene. You may choose to use simple white plates or good china.

There are so many accouterments to make it your own. 

If your dinnerware is neutral or another color entirely, consider adding a soft pop of Valentine’s pink or red with other elements.

Valentine’s Day Gifts

Use presents as another sweet addition and decoration for the table. 

Purchase a treat bag or box; add a tag and ribbon or wrap it up with pretty packaging.

Fill with Valentine’s truffles, candy, or other small trinkets.

DIY Place Cards

Personalize each place setting with Valentine’s place cards or a festive name flag.

Napkin Rings DIY

It’s always special to use cloth napkins. If you are prepared to take your table to that level, keep going and add a napkin ring.

These DIY rings are interchangeable and FAST to make.

Pick out a complimentary scrapbook paper or a scrap of fabric—tape or glue around the barrel. Change for any occasion.

Valentine Flowers

When you add fresh flowers or a floral centerpiece, achieving a gorgeous table is effortless!

My traditional Valentine’s Day colors (red tulip with green leaves) flower arrangement is the easiest!

You needn’t spend a lot or get elaborate; a simple centerpiece makes a huge difference.

These were from the grocery store, but get the pretty table and the color scheme started.

More ideas include a single rose, red roses, red and white flowers in mason jars, a row of small vases, or even sprinkled rose petals on your dining table.

If you are looking for larger Valentine’s Day centerpieces, consider a combination of bright, vibrant flowers or, the opposite, a soft pink pastel color palette with pale grays.

A different idea; red roses, pink roses, pink lilies, pink alstroemeria, and purple waxflower. Gorgeous!

Lastly, add a personal touch with tinted roses and red hydrangea, which pair excellently together.
