Valentines Day Table Settings and Decors
Valentine Table Settings Decor – With everyone’s beloved Hallmark holiday rounding the corner and being less than a week away, the time has come to bust out the hearts, roses, and homemade doily valentines. Valentine’s Day, as kitschy as it may be, is a perfect day for the creative romantic to show off his or her major chops.
I mean, who doesn’t love being showered with fine dining, furry friends, and an explosion of pinks, purples and reds! The holiday of Saint Valentine, himself, is not the time to be a Grinch vowing to isolate yourself in the likes of a recluse whilst donning a grumpy face and cursing every one around you. NOR is it a time to scramble to the city full of bland prix fixe menus at overly crowded mediocre restaurants. Instead, try throwing the perfect V-Day at home with full fierce design and sensual style.
Throwing your special valentine a night to remember at home is the perfect gift and is a wonderful way to truly show off your personality and creative side. A romantic dinner (whether, homemade or secretly catered a la Mrs. Doubtfire) paired with the perfect decor and table spread is a definite must to win over the heart of your honey.
Keeping it classy with a centerpiece of beautiful fresh-cut florals, crisp linens, and hints of romantic holiday decor is a definite win-win situation for all. Can you possibly argue with being surprised with a candle-lit fine-dining experience that comes straight from the heart? I know I cant, but that must be the hopeless romantic in me.
Another fun thought is to really bust out all the chops and make some serious creative stops. Why not make homemade valentines? Who says you can’t sprinkle the table with glitter and Sweethearts? There’s something novel and quite cute when it comes to such a ridiculous holiday.
That childlike excitement layered with anxious nerves we all had as children when Valentine’s Day rolled around reminds us to have fun and not take life so seriously. I, for one, would majorly swoon if the table was adorned with Muppet valentines, heart-shaped Reese’s, and copious amounts of champagne. Throw in red Gerber daisies (my favorite flower), and I am yours!
