This year Valentine’s Day was going to be super low-key because my hubby was scheduled to have dental surgery that morning. Luck was on our side and his dental work was pushed up to this week so now we can plan something a little more special. We thought about going out to dinner but have decided to stay in, relax and enjoy the evening.
To make the table feel a little special I pulled together this colorful Valentines tablescape using my favorite colors along with a few of my blue & white ceramic pieces.
Whenever I’m creating a tablescape, I start with the centerpiece. I’ve always want to use tissue paper honeycomb balls down the center of the table and this was the perfect occasion. PaperMart, one of my go-to sources for gift wrap and paper products sells tissue paper honeycomb balls in 2 sizes and 9 great colors. I used a combination of the 8″ and 10″ balls in red, pink and white. The smaller white honeycomb balls came from Ikea.
I place a red table runner down the center of the table and filled a vintage milk glass vase with faux peonies. I placed two of my vintage (and thrifted) blue and white chinoiserie jars on each side of the flower vase. And the final step was scattering the honeycomb balls down the table, in and round the vase and jars.
As with all the tablescapes I create, this one includes layers of color, texture and pattern.
Once the centerpiece was complete I added my place settings.
I used black and white striped placemats to add a graphic pattern to the table. Square white dinner plates and the new blue and white floral plates I found at HomeGoods recently finished the place setting.
This is one of the easiest centerpiece I’ve ever pulled together and I love the way it turned out.
I’m going to have fun using these honeycomb balls for all sorts of party and entertaining decor this year. And they have even spurred an idea for my 2017 Christmas decor.
Love is definitely in the air at our house? How do you plan on celebrating Valentine’s Day?
