I have been working on a few Valentine’s Day projects recently. I just launched my Esty shop with my Valentine’s day card line. Check it out ----> here. I have also been working on a fun Valentine’s Day tablescape idea inspired from my Flat Thanksgiving Tablescape. I wanted to create beautiful and fun pieces that could be used at home or at a restaurant. They are easy to make or I might sell these. Any interest?
Simple steps to creating flat Valentine’s Day tablescape:
Watercolor a few pieces of paper. I used more purples and pinks, but using just reds would also look amazing.
Once the paper is dry - draw or trace different size hearts on the painted paper using a pencil. I hand drew them.
Cut them out and place them on your table - that’s i
At the Restaurant:
We went to the Left Bank in Menlo Park for a lovely french dinner. I brought the hearts in a folder and then when we sat down I laid them out on the table. Guys - I am sure you could arrange to have this pre-done - hint, hint. Our server loved them - she also appreciated that they did not get in way. I think the hearts work best on tablecloth but any table surface would be fine.
As our drinks and meal came out we just placed everything over of the hearts. The hearts added such a fun pop of color to the table but did not get in the way of the meal. They are also fun to play with during dinner and to write little love notes - hehe.
My cute husband - indulging me as I test out my ideas!
I set up a simple yet romantic tablescape with homemade candles (future blog post about how to make these), white plates, linens and the hearts. Even in dime lighting they create a beautiful design and add to the ambiance. You can always add flowers or other decor with the hearts but I wanted to show how the hearts can be stand alone.
Have you done something similar for Valentine’s day? Interested in purchasing these hearts? Let me know.
