Tablescapes are one of our favorite spaces to decorate, they are like a blank canvas, leaving you with a perfect opportunity to get creative for any occasion and season!
Today we have teamed up with some amazing bloggers to bring you five simple ways to decorate for Valentines Day. If you are coming from LuvBec, welcome! Isn't Bec's space ammmazzzinggg?!
Now, let's take a look at Lacey's Sweetheart Valentines Day tablescape!
My dinning area is definitely not ideal for large dinner parties or gatherings but it's absolutely perfect for a romantic evening for two. I've decided to go for a simple french shabby chic look for Valentines Day this year!
This tablescape was put together solely by things I already had, mostly found at thrift stores! SHOCKER! ;) What can I say, I like a good bargain that gives me high end look for less! Throwing together pink flowers, with cute soft pink accessories gives you a subtle Valentines look in an instant!
The white table cloth is actually a queen size bed skirt and the lace table cloth/ runner is a curtain, both from Good Will! The brass candle sticks, and white pitcher/flower vase are also from Good Will, making this tablescape very affordable!
The antique cane back chairs were a hand me down from my grandma and the round pedestal table was a freebie from a friends grandmother who was moving out of her home and getting rid of a bunch of furniture. We scored big ;)
The wine glasses with the pink stems were from one of my favorite local thrift stores, and the teacups, blue and pink platter, and mirrored tray were found at local antique stores for super cheap! The French style China Hutch was also found at a local antique store for just around 300 bucks!
The antique plates were hand me downs from my Grandma; I'm so blessed to get such pretty things passed down to me!! :) The gold candle votives were found in the dollar section at Target a few years ago and the jeweled candle votives are from At Home. I love the mix of old and new!
The only thing I bought new to create this soft romantic tablescape were the fresh flowers and greenery! Oh and the pastries, don't those look tasty!?! No way did I make those from scratch! :)
Creating a Valentines tablescape or any tablescape for that matter is simpler then it may seem. Adding layers, like stacking plates, having multiple glasses and tablecloths create dimension and give a fuller look. Fresh flowers is another element that can make your whole table a showstopper! We like to pick up eucalyptus greens and fresh flowers for an affordable price at our local Trader Joe's!
Although most of my items were found at thrift stores, I have linked some similar items below!
