Valentines Tablescape

I love setting my table for different seasons. Some very talented ladies did a blog hop last week with valentines table settings. Let me tell you, they were all gorgeous!! If you want to check them out you can start here. I was super inspired by them and loved the pretty food that each of them also included as part of their tablescape. However, I knew gorgeous sugar cookies and heart pancakes weren't in my weekend plans. Or really sustainable for me. Plus anytime I try and make something like that, it looks like my 12 year old self did it with the help of my 8 month old daughter....

I wanted to do something that would come close to lasting until Valentines day. Fresh floral was a must, and if it dies before then, it's relatively easy to replace. So, here's what I came up with.

Everything is linked below. Some stuff is from home goods so, I've linked similar products.

Table - West Elm
White Chairs - Overstock
Linen Table Runners - Home goods (for $9) but Similar Here
Blush Napkins - Pottery Barn
Blush Votives - Michaels but Similar Here
Plates - World Market
Gold Flatware - Similiar Here

I think my favorite part of the table (other than the flowers) is the gold flatware. It's actually new, never been used but OLD! My mom got it for my grandma 20 years ago for Christmas. It never got used, and I wanted gold flatware one year so my grandma gifted it to me. It's set in my pantry for two years and finally made it's debut! I love it!!!

What do you guys do on valentines day? We are definitely stay at home type of people. We eat out A LOT that there's no need to deal with the crowds on the day of love. We do use it as an excuse to make a fancy dinner at home though. So, setting the table helps the ambiance :).
