Before you start, gather all the materials you will need. Here’s a list of essential items:
- Flowers or floral arrangements
- Decorative accents (such as rose petals or confetti)
Setting the Table
Begin by laying out a clean and crisp tablecloth on your dining table. Then, arrange the plates, glassware, and flatware in their proper places. Fold the napkins into a romantic shape, such as a heart or rose, and place them next to or top of the plates.
Adding the Decorative Touches
Next, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your table setting. Place a few candles in the center of the table to create a warm and intimate ambiance. Even if you are hosting during the day, lit candles create a nice ambience.
Surround the candles with a beautiful floral arrangement or a simple bouquet of fresh flowers. I used tape in a grid pattern on top of the vase to give the roses support.
You can scatter rose petals or other decorative accents around the table to give it a romantic feel.
I filled vintage bowls with Valentine candies for both a playful look and of course for nibbling!
Creating a Personal Touch
For a personal touch, you can add a special message or note to each place setting. Write a love note, a sweet message, or even a poem to express your love and appreciation to your loved one. You can also create custom place cards with your guests’ names for an extra special touch.
I used some of the wrapping paper I used on the decoupage napkin rings to make matching place cards.
Finally, turn down the lights and light the candles. Put on some romantic music (or if you are throwing a Galentine party, pick an upbeat playlist) in the background to set the mood. Your Valentine’s Day table setting is now ready for a memorable dinner with your loved one/s.
