RED Valentine's Day Tablescape Idea

Red Valentine's Day Tablescape
For those of you that know me...I love me some red!
I came up with this tablescape by gathering things from around the house that would work with this color scheme.
I started with the striped red white and tan fabric in the center all crumbled up. Added the large white lantern (Ikea $10.00 years ago) and then the brown bamboo placemats .25 each at Garden Ridge. I used some of my dinner plates I bought from Tai Pain awhile back for $2.00 each and added the floral salad plate (free from my mom who got them from a used restaurant supply place), I used the bright red cloth napkins with one of my white napkin rings (My Etsy Store), I love how the red napkin really stands out when placed over the entire placesetting. I added a small chocolate heart candy to the mix.
This cake stand is actually a Christmas cake stand and has Christmas trees in the center but who's to know when you cover it with a white doiley and my cute red and white striped bowlies each with a chocolate heart in it. (I would fill it with some creme brulee if I stopped playing around with dishes and cooked ha ha). I pulled the little birdies from off the shelf in the kitchen, the little green ivy from the bathroom and the little silver vase with white flowers from my daughters bedroom.

I love to set a pretty table with things from around the house.
Take a tour of your own home and pull things from here and there to create a tablescape without spending any money!

I really want to come up with a black and white Valentine tablescape with just a touch of red.
mmmm what could I use...I must go shopping in my house now.
Buy some HERE in my ETSy Store!

  16. This is adorable and you are SO clever to use things you already have on hand...anyone that has the budget can buy lots of stuff but it takes true creativity to use what you have and come up with something like this!
