I love Valentine’s Day, and not just because I’m in a committed love relationship! Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to express love to anyone who means a lot to you – whether it’s someone in your family or a close friend! That’s what I had in mind when I put together this month’s tablescape. Here’s how I would set the table if inviting a friend over for a Valentine’s lunch or dessert!
I didn’t purchase anything new for this table setting, but simply gathered items in different textures and heights from around the house. The soft pink of the blanket scarf was the perfect base for the setting, and I love the fringe on the edges. Even though I only set the table with a lunch plate, I layered it on a gold charger to give the place setting a finished look.
I certainly plan on celebrating the romantic aspects of Valentine’s Day and I hope you can, too! However, I hope you’ll also look for a way to share some V-Day love with someone else in your life. Here are some ideas:
- Invite a widow to your home for lunch (on a lovely table setting like this one, of course!)
- Host a tea party for your niece, daughter or young neighbor
- Send a few Dollar Tree Valentines goodies to the kids in your family
- Set a pretty table with your good dishes and serve your family a festive Valentine’s Day meal!
How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
