Our colorful Valentine's Day table all set

You know I love setting a pretty table and I am so excited to share every single detail with you today.

Mix Patterns and Colors

One of the best ways to add visual interest to any tablescape is by mixing patterns and colors. Start by creating a base layer of patterned tablecloths or runners, like a pink floral print or red toile.

I chose this lovely green block print tablecloth that I use year round! All of these details make for the perfect colorful Valentine’s Day table decor ideas.

Layer on solid colored placemats, chargers and napkins, such as pink or white. I added these textured indoor outdoor placemats. They are my favorite because you can rinse them off! I also love that just like the tablecloth you can use them no matter the season.

I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise but I found the most beautiful block print napkins perfect for Valentine’s Day!

So I added them to the table. How pretty are the block-printed napkins with shades of dark red, gold and pink for an extra pop of color.

You could also mix different materials such as lace, velvet, and cotton for added texture depending on your style and taste. I of course always mix in some rattan and stripes!

Faux Flowers

Are you team faux or real? I am usually both!

Faux flowers are a great way to add some color without having to worry about fresh blooms wilting if left out overnight or during dinner.

Pick up some faux roses, tulips, peonies, and daisies in shades ranging from pale pinks to deep fuchsias and arrange them into a bouquet at the center of the table.

On my table you will see real touch faux peonies and tulips!

Faux white tulips in a tea pot

I added my favorite faux white tulips to this tea pot of my mom’s. She let me borrow it since it has hearts on it. How darling is it for Valentine’s Day?

I also added them to this lovely new vase I got from Amazon! You can never have enough faux flowers on your table.

Battery Operated Candles and Real Votives

To keep with the holiday theme, pair faux flowers with battery operated candles in glass holders or tea lights arranged in votive holders for an ethereal glow.

If you’d rather use real candles, place them in hurricane lanterns for added protection against any accidental spills that could occur during your time at the table.

I used battery operated taper candles and pillar candles. Of course I also used some real votives sprinkled along the table as well.

Layering Around Your Place Settings

When setting up your place settings, layer different colors and textures together starting with a plain white plate at the bottom followed by a colored plate (think pink or red).

Also don’t forget what a fun touch glassware can add. When I saw these pink glasses that looked vintage I snagged them up. I cant wait to use them all Spring as well!

A Simple Valentine’s Day Centerpiece

The final step of my table was the oh so simple Valentine’s Day centerpieces. I use a large white enamel tray, two books and set the tea pot on them.

In the tea pot I added the faux tulips! And that was it! easy to create and easy to move as well!
