Valentine’s Day Nuptial Dinner Tablescape

Hi friends!  I’m so honored to once again join a talented group of bloggers and designers for the Valentine’s Day Tablescape Blog Hop.  If you’re stopping by from Follow the Yellow Brick Home, welcome!  A big  thank you to the gracious Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing this wonderful blog hop. Before you go, be sure to check out all of the beautiful and unique table settings in the links below.

As I was thinking about a theme for my table and looking through my stuff, it occurred to me that I could  somewhat recreate a table from my wedding day as I still have the table runners that I made several years ago.  Although we didn’t get married on Valentine’s Day, it was a winter wedding and the color scheme was red and gold.

We wanted to get married on Valentine’s Day, but the historic inn where we held the reception and entertained our out of town guests was booked solid.  So instead we chose January 3rd.  It was right after Christmas, so the church and the inn were still decorated for the holidays.  It was an intimate celebration with just 50 guests.  It even snowed a little bit!

I ordered red roses in bulk online, and assembled the centerpieces myself.  Although I arranged the wedding flowers in gold urns, I decided to put my Valentine’s Day roses in a vintage chalkware planter.  It depicts children holding a large basket, and it is one of my favorite possessions of all time.

The plates are on loan from my best friend, Meredith.  She found them at our church’s thrift shop, where we’ve both been loyal patrons since we were in grade school.  They are by Noritake and have gorgeous raised gold scrollwork.  I placed them atop gold chargers and paired them with my gold plastic cutlery.

The brass mini candelabras came from my mom’s stash.  I had the red taper candles left over from when we had our gift shop.  One of the candelabras was a little wonky, but I did my best and made it work!

I mistakenly ordered too much wedding stationary, so I still had a box of menu cards.  This is the actual menu from our reception.

I folded white linen napkins in a triangle and placed them on the bread and butter plates.  A gold pinecone on top was the finishing touch.

The extra roses were arranged in vintage glass containers.

Votive candles and gold pinecones were scattered on the runners.

The only item I purchased for this tablescape was the tablecloth from Homegoods.  It’s by Nicole Miller Home and cost $25.00.  It has gold embroidery that I thought would match the plates, but unfortunately it can’t be seen because the design hangs to the sides of the table.  Oh well.  I also spent $35.00 on the roses.  An early Valentine’s Day gift  🙂

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day Tablescape and my trip down memory lane.  Be sure to hop on over to the other blogs below for more Valentine’s Day inspiration!

Have a great weekend and a fun Valentines Day with those you love!
