I am sharing with you my best tips for Valentine’s Day entertaining!
I’ve mentioned it before, but Kurtis and I aren’t huge fans of Valentine’s Day. Typically we’ll go to dinner a different night that week (to avoid the crowds) and call it a day. No gifts exchanged or anything. We’re lame. However, today, I’ve teamed up with the Styled + Set crew again, hosted by Lory from Designthusiasm, to share some swoon worthy Valentine’s Day entertaining ideas! If you’re stopping in from Decor Gold Designs, welcome!
Today, I set a Valentine’s themed simple tablescape to share with you. After I arranged the pretty flowers and transformed the dining room, I was suddenly in the mood for Valentine’s Day!
I picked up that gorgeous tall vase over the weekend, and honestly wasn’t sure I was going to keep it. But, once I filled it with some stunning flowers from Trader Joe’s, I immediately knew it was a keeper. I’m completely obsessed with it now. Granted, it’s a bit tall for under our chandelier, but I’m still loving it here.
You know I’m all about simple, so for this Valentine’s Day tablescape, I stuck with sparkling Prosecco, a meat and cheese tray, strawberries and a berry torte. I used my gold dot stemless wine glasses because they seemed fitting for bubbly Prosecco and Valentine’s Day.
This ice mold/wine bottle chiller, may be one of my favorite purchases in a while. You basically can add anything you want to the water in the mold before you freeze it, and you instantly have a beautiful, customized wine chiller! I cut the fresh strawberries into slices and then cut little v’s into the top to try and make them look like hearts. Not sure it was worth my effort since you can barely see them 😉
The tulips I found at Trader Joe’s instantly made it feel like spring is almost here! I rarely decorate with pink, but after this appealing setup, I want to use it more frequently!
I picked up those heart-shaped plates a few weeks ago at Pottery Barn. They were surprisingly affordable and I love that they reminded me of my mom’s special Valentine’s sugar cookies she ships to us each year. They are the best!
I used my favorite affordable velvet pillow covers in a dusky blush pink color at the head chairs. I love the luxe texture and softness they add to the room!
I should note I’m lacking a table runner (and probably needed one) but I fell in love with this red striped one, and refused to pay $60 for it. So, it’s looking a little naked (but I’m also $60 richer since I didn’t buy it).
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of my stylish Valentine’s Day entertaining style!
