No flowers? No problem. Create a lovely table arrangement with vintage china and candles nested in silver-plated holders. Susan of Between Naps on a Porch used beautifully printed porcelain plates and intricately designed chargers for timeless charm. Eyelet table napkins bring the touch of romance, and dragonfly napkin rings add a bit of whimsy to this classic arrangement.
Minimalist and Rustic

Simplicity is key for Julie Blanner’s table setting. With touches of pink and white, this rustic arrangement uses jasmine sprigs and candlesticks to complete the look. Quick and easy to set up, this minimalist design lasts for about 8-10 hours and is perfect for your Valentine’s day family dinner.
Whimsical and Entertaining

Brush up on your DIY projects to make a fun and creative setting for your Valentine’s day brunch with friends. Using a black and gold theme, Shauna of Beautiful Matters repurposed old books to create a table runner. She then added a vase filled with Cupid’s arrows and an eye-catching modern branch centerpiece with heart cut-outs. The homemade heart wall art helped her achieve a unique and charming addition to this special occasion.
Sweet and Sophisticated

A fan of pale and pastel hues, Janet of Shabbyfufu believes that “less is more”. She creates a refreshingly timeless and elegant design by using light and subtle colors in place of the traditional red motif. Combining antique dinnerware, pastel wine goblets, and a lush arrangement of pink ruffled garden roses as a centerpiece, she achieves a light and sweet atmosphere for an intimate Valentine meal.
Romantic and Elegant

Planning to host a Valentine’s Day gathering with your friends? Take some pointers from this beautiful tablescape of The Glitter Guide. A posy of pastel flowers set against a black and white striped table runner adds texture, color, and romance to this design. Low floral arrangements allow your guests to talk to each other across the table without any distractions or hindrances. Finish the look with sketch cards instead of the traditional name tags to add flair to this crisp and elegant setting.
