A Whimsical Pink and White Table Setting

| | | |

Do you guys do anything special for Valentine’s Day? If you’ve been following me for anytime, you know I love ANY excuse to set a beautiful table, and a celebration of love is the perfect excuse, don’t you think!? I’m not big into red hearts or the typical Valentine’s day decorations, but I do love soft pinks and whites, so I created a whimsical pink and white table setting that is perfect for a special Valentine’s Day gathering or any upcoming party or shower.

My inspiration often begins with flowers and this time was no different.

My inspiration often begins with flowers and this time was no different. I visited my local flower mart and was pleased to see so many flowers in the soft pink and blush tones I was looking for. I decided to create a simple garland using plenty of greenery and filled with romantic and whimsical blooms.

I found some pretty seeded eucalyptus to run down the center of the table and tucked in soft pink gerber daisies, blush spray roses, white stock and mini roses. Most of these flowers can be found at your local market, so don’t think you need a flower mart to achieve this look!

The oversized daisies created a fun whimsical feel, while the roses and stock kept it soft and romantic.

It was super easy to create this look. I simply piled the eucalyptus down the center of the table in a straight line and tucked the flowers into the greenery. I used water tubes to keep the blooms fresh. It takes a bit more time to place each flower in the tube, but it is well worth it to prolong the life of the garland!

Once the garland was in place, I added some platinum taper candles and mercury glass votives.

For the bit that flowed over the end of the table, I used some simple floral wire to tie the greenery together and then wired in the flowers.

For the place settings I wanted to repeat the soft pink and white colors of the garland. I used the polished silver chargers that have become my favorites and then added a blush pink dinner plate followed by a simple white salad plate. I decided to add a touch of vintage with my new flatware that I found at a local antique mart. Aren’t they just beautiful!

I tucked a soft gray napkin around the salad plate and also added my favorite etched glass goblets for another touch of vintage romance.

The final touch was a blush pink champagne coupe filled with a puff of white hydrangea. I love the whimsical feel this gives the table. Sort of like a dessert glass filled with whipped cream!

The overall look was ultra soft and romantic with just a touch of whimsy.

While this table setting looks like a lot of work, it was actually incredibly easy to achieve and only took me about 30 minutes to put together. I think it would be beautiful for a special Valentine’s day at home or perhaps as an inspiration for an upcoming Spring party or shower! What do you think!? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!

  5. This is beautiful; but since you only wired the ends the flowed over the table, what were the ends anchored to? I would have thought you would have to wire the whole garland.

    1. Thanks Colleen. I’m sorry if it wasn’t clear. I did wire all of the greenery, but not the flowers. The flowers were only wired to the greenery garland that flowed over the table. Hope that makes sense.
