Want to create the perfect romantic setting for that special night in? Why not consider one of our top 10 Valentines Tablescape DIY ideas.
Glasses are a great way to make a table setting completely seasonal or unique.
Combine vintage glasses from a market or second-hand shop with some modern crockery and romantic roses and you set that extra special tone for a Valentines Tablescape DIY style.
In addition to silver or gold-rimmed glassware, think mixed metals or crystal and use these to compliment tumblers as well as dinnerware.
White plates generally go well with everything, so a good classic set is a definite investment for the long term whatever the occasion.
For a Valentines Tablescape DIY why not try using individual old-fashioned roses in tumblers to decorate your table.
Not only are they lower in cost on the big day, but their amazing fragrance will really help to put you both in a romantic mood.
Plus, it will also help ensure you are able to maintain good eye contact with your loved one on the night.
This can only be a bonus.
Combine classic roses with copper stemmed flutes or classic copper champagne glasses.
These not only look a million dollars, but reinforces that extra special day feeling.
If you prefer gold, opt for something with bubbles or tiny stars.
This shouts celebration, so why not make it count.
You may even want to pop the question.
In this case we suggest you opt for classic crystal or some fab gold rimmed coupe glasses. You would certainly want to be toasting that “yes” in style.
Rainbow hearts, personalised scalloped hearts, biodegradable confetti or even naturally dried petals – confetti can really make your table pop.
For a special Valentines Tablescape DIY idea, why not consider adding heart confetti to clear balloons.
Tie these to chairs, or light fittings or use tied to your flower arrangement as a centrepiece.
Just remember not to obscure your view.
That way you not only lift the table visually, but still get to maintain eye contact.
Candles are great for creating a cosy, romantic atmosphere.
Round, tall or small, these can be grouped together on their own or combined with flowers and foliage to create a magical atmosphere whether you are inside or out in the garden.
Combinations of red candles with gold sprayed foliage or twigs says warmth, while white combined with silver or crystal says understated, but elegant.
If outside, consider using several tealights in jars combined with fairy-lights to create that little bit of extra warmth and magic to and on the table.
Roses are magical all year round, but for a Valentines Tablescape DIY idea consider less is more.
Why not layer single roses in glass silhouette votive holders or square glass jars.
This way you get to vary the height of your decorations for ease of conversation.
Consider a small rose bouquet as a single focal point to avoid a cluttered look.
Old vintage roses work beautifully with English bone China for that shabby-chic look.
Combine this with a lace table runner and some ornate silverware for that authentic classic style.
There is nothing wrong with minimalistic design when it comes to Valentines Tablescape DIY ideas.
Decorate your table with a crisp white tablecloth, use white or soft pastel flowers and green foliage, add silver candlesticks and tapered candles and voila! Sweet and simple wins the day!
You can even add some sweet chocolate hearts for your very special Valentine.
This is definitely one for the true romantic.
Write or print your own love notes to tell your Valentine the reasons why they are so amazing.
This is definitely a way to get your table to do the talking.
Add your own special personalised gifts for example, a box of personalised candy, pocket pick-me-up cards or gift tokens. Place these as part of the table decoration or serve with the dessert.
Think dreamy, wistful or modern.
Watercolor motives, colour and paper decorations can be used to great effect in your Valentines Tablescape DIY idea.
From using homemade watercolour paper for butterflies, birds or hearts, you can personalise balloons, glass, candles and place settings in this way.
Choose your core colours and repeat this across the table.
Remember to use a neutral tablecloth to offset the colours for maximum effect.
Nothing says Valentine’s Tablescape DIY idea more than chocolate.
Use chocolate-coloured plates, napkin rings or place cards with crisp white linen to create that super-indulgent theme.
Food is often used these days to decorate your tablescape so do not be scared to experiment with chocolate balls, fronds or hearts in glass instead of flowers.
Think yummy treats so opt for truffles, cupcakes, chocolate ice cubes, a chocolate fountain or even chocolate martinis.
If you are going to be nostalgic, why not use a love song theme for your Valentines Tablescape DIY idea.
From printed place cards, menus or love notes, make the most of that special song to bring the two of you together on this occasion.
We love the idea of printing words or sheet music from your love song onto straws, napkins and vases for your flowers.
Similarly, how about using love song confetti in your balloons or strewn around the table.
If you opt for this, remember to use the love song theme as the main table accent and keep the rest of the colour palette neutral.
Carrying on with the food as a decor idea, why not use iced cakes, cupcakes and cake pops sitting on glassware to decorate your Valentine’s Day table.
Choose a bright colour for impact or opt for classy white and match these with the colour of your roses.
Add candlelight to create that feeling of warmth and even consider adding in your chocolate fountain.
Another idea to consider is a special gift box for sharing with your loved one after the meal.
Again, this would work brilliantly for that pop the question moment. How could they say no!
Remember, everything around your table contributes to the overall tablescape and ambience.
As such, it is worth paying attention to how you decorate your chairs, the walls and even the space above as well as the table itself.
Remember that loving someone is special, so make the most of this opportunity to show your affection and enjoy your time together this Valentine’s Day.
