This is the ultimate Valentine’s Day table for anyone who is drawn to pink and feminine details. I love using my table as a way to try out styles that I like, but perhaps don’t make sense in my home on a larger scale. I noticed this tablecloth while shopping at Pottery Barn and picked it up thinking that it would perfect for Valentine’s Day or Easter, but ended up passing on it because I was focused on Christmas decorations at the time. My mom ended up surprising me with the tablecloth and matching napkins for Christmas and I am so happy to have them.
I found the glassware and plates while clicking around on Williams Sonoma and thought they would be perfect with the pink table linens. I love that the glasses come in a variety of colors and are dishwasher safe. I know I always go on and on about things be dishwasher safe, but it is such a time saver. The plates are part of the Famille Rose Dinnerware collection. Most of this collection is a bit too whimsical for my taste, but I love the dinner plates (also dishwasher safe).
No table is complete without flowers. I used mint julep cups that I found on Amazon as my vases and I imagine that I will get a lot of use out of them for both cocktails and flower vessels. I was hoping to find roses that were the same shade of pink as the tablecloth, but none of the roses available that day were quite right. I went for white and very pale pink and I think it worked out in the end. I would use this tablescape for an afternoon tea or a dinner party, but don’t let that limit you. Maybe you like to go all out for breakfast or lunch and to that, I say cheers!
