Over the last couple of years, I’ve created some fun and easy Valentine DIY’s here on the blog. Today, I’m showing you how to put them all to use while decorating a tablescape! I’ve never done one of these before, so I’m really excited to share all the details with you guys. Here’s my super quaint and cozy set-up for 4. This would be great for galentine parties, a special dinner, or a creative kiddo play date!
All of the hues come together to create such a happy setting. I used flutes for the beverages because they’re fun for all ages, right? My daughter wants to drink everything out of them lately! I filled these with orange juice, but my preference would’ve been some added champagne! I do enjoy a nice mimosa. YUM.To create a tablescape like this one, you need place settings with layers, a centerpiece, treats, and confetti. Everything is better with confetti!For my centerpiece, I chose a small bouquet and placed my DIY mason jars around as well to add some extra “depth”. Click here for the full tutorial. I love these teeny tiny jars! They make great Valentine gifts when you fill them with festive goodies like candy, or sweet little love notes.
My cake toppers were another DIY that was a really fun one to make. I created the hearts with oven-bake clay and colored them with acrylic paint. Click here to check that out! Don’t they look the cutest with these cranberry orange muffins? The placemats were a quick DIY that I haven’t added to the blog because they’re super duper EASY. I cut poster board to measure the size of a standard placemat, so about 11 x 17 inches. I painted the hearts with black acrylic paint, but you can use a chisel end Sharpie instead if you want. These are great for kids too. They’re so tempting to color! Add a cup of crayons to each end of the table for a fun after project.
My layers are pretty simple.
I started with a dinner plate on the bottom, placed a paper doily on top, then a dessert plate. These conversation gift tags are free to print by clicking —> HERE!! Go grab them!
The ombre napkins are another DIY that I made. Follow the tutorial here! I dip dyed them with Fuchsia RIT dye similar to how I made my rainbow dipped macrame wall hanging. This project didn’t take long at all! Once I finished dyeing them, I threw them in the dryer and ironed them flat.Speaking of ombre!! Did you catch my pink plant stand in the corner there? My DIY planter was featured on Shutterfly under gift ideas for plant and gardening lovers. I LOVE Shutterfly so I was really happy to be a part of that post. Check it out!
The banner hanging in the back was made with the same type of paper doily I used on my plates. I found a package of them in the Target Dollar Spot. SO simple to make — see?All of these DIY’s complete my Valentine’s party tablescape! I love that there are multiple aspects combined, but it doesn’t seem to be over crowded either. I had so much fun creating my first tablescape! I think I’ll do more of these in the future. I hope you enjoyed all the details and were inspired to do one yourself. One last overview of all the things! Get your craft on and create your own tablescape like this one. I want to see your ideas, so share them with me!Have a super sweet Valentine’s Day celebrating with loved ones.
