Are you looking for a way to make your Valentine feel special!? This year I wanted to create a sweet Valentine’s Day dinner for my husband and son. I typically push myself to think outside the traditional holiday colors, and since red is the obvious choice, pink was the next runner up. It’s safe to guess that my boys probably wouldn’t be down with a cutsie table wrapped in pink, so I added black and gray for a masculine touch!
So, here are all my secrets for the perfect Valentine’s Table:
** Find things to reuse from your existing stash **
Flatware: Kate Spade, Flatiron (wedding gift…I chose because of the knives, aren’t they swanky!)
Stemware: Kate Spade, Library Stripe
Tablecloth: Chevron print from Stacy Naquin Interiors’ fabric library (I didn’t get fancy, no sewing involved…I simply cut fabric to size)
Pink Linen Napkins: I cheated on that too, it’s not actually a napkin. I knew there was no way I would ever find the perfect soft pink in a fabric napkin, so I just bought a yard of fabric from Joann Fabrics, cut to the same size as my linen napkins, and folded it. (Note: In high school, I was taking Physics to attempt college while my friends were
taking the easy way out learning to sew and bake cookies. I can’t sew, and I buy my own cookies. When all else fails: go to plan B.)
Black runners: Yep, Joann again.
Dinnerware, aka plates: Walmart. Surprised aren’t you!? So am I. See…mixing high and low!!! (I’m very, very sneaky sir!)
Place card holders: My favorite part of the whole table! I bought these little frames from Michael’s a few years ago. The chalkboard is really just a black poster! Whewwww….such a time saver.
