Can you believe February is just a day away and Valentines Day is right around the corner?
I’ve pulled together items to create the Valentine’s table the hubby and I will dine at on Valentines. We’ve decided to stay in for the evening and I want to create a table that is pretty and unique. I’ll be sharing the finished table with you next week.
As part of my planning, I’ve looked through magazines, my photo files and on Pinterest to come up with some decorating ideas and have come across a few I thought I’d share with you. Now that spring is here, there are birthday parties, anniversaries, girls get-together and weddings to plan. These ideas just might come in handy.

My style is not Victorian or overtly floral but I love this mix of china and the burlap utensil caddy used in this place setting. The utensil caddie could be adapted for so many occasion and would also be great to hold a menu card. I also love this idea for a bridal shower luncheon. I’d pin a vintage brooches on each utensil caddy and give it to each attendee as a party favor.

I love the arrangement of this napkin, menu card and placecard. The pattern mix and black and white color theme are sophisticated yet informal. When summer approaches, use this same look for a BBQ, substituting a traditional napkin with a dishtowel which would be a for great for keeping the fingers clean of BBQ sauce.

What a fun way to set the table for a spring party! I love the teacups as flower vases and the fun mix of cylinder flower vases as the centerpiece.

Another table with a beautiful mix of patterns. The oversized dollie placemats are such a fun touch. This type of tablescape would be perfect for all those leftover fabric scraps I know we all have. I’d even go so far as to mix and match the napkins too!

I am a big fan of mix-and-match plates and love this casual party look. The white dinner plates help to create consistency within the tablescape while the different salad plates give it personality. And those flowers are just stunning..nothing but bright and bold.

I was thinking about using 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper as a placemat alternative when I came across this image. Love it! Not only is scrapbook paper a simple and easy tabletop decorating element, but it’s inexpensive to. Lay several pieces together to create a runner.

All you need is a little time and a circle punch to create this fun table decor. Punch circles from different colored papers and scatter them along the table to create a runner. When the party’s over, you’ll have lots of confetti circles to create a fun paper garland with.
Don’t these images make you throw a party for no other reason than to decorate? As for me, my first party of the year will be Valentine’s with my guy. Stay tuned for a Table For Two!
