A red and white place setting for Valentines table decoration.

Valentines Table Decoration

Set the mood for a unique and memorable evening with a bit of Valentines table decoration.

Your true love, family, or friends will certainly notice and appreciate the pampering and attention you give them.

I had so much fun putting this table together with thrift and dollar store finds. It was triple the fun. Hunting + Deals + Dinner!

Whether using goodies from your cupboard or thrifting, I have some ideas to 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 have selected some bold red pieces to set the bold table for 2. 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 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 up with pretty packaging. Fill with Valentine 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 interchangable 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

And last but never least, FLOWERS! They make such a huge difference. 

You needn’t spend much. My tulips are from the grocery store but give smiles for miles for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
