Valentine’s Day Table Setting Inspiration

A day defined by love, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for a dinner party or special event. Whether you are hosting a Galentine’s Day party, an anniversary celebration, or a romantic dinner with your sweetheart, you can create a beautiful table setting that illuminates the love you have for your guests.

Color Palette

Begin by choosing a color palette, as it will help guide your design choices and types of tableware or linen. Depending on your guests, your color palette may be traditional with red and white, or more feminine with light pink, gold, and yellow. Whether you are designing based on a traditional or feminine color palette, use crystal to accent the beauty of other colors or textures. Choosing simplicity in pastel tabletop colors with brightly colored flowers creates a beautiful setting for a Galentine’s Day celebration. For a romantic dinner, consider using black and white or gold with sprinkled rose petals.

Napkin Design

Have you ever considered decorating with napkins? Valentine’s Day is well-known for its use of the heart, so why not create a napkin heart? Simply folding the napkin in this shape will offer a “heartfelt” sentiment. If you want to get creative, try folding your napkins into flowers! If this sounds too complicated, using a silver beaded napkin ring with a pink or red napkin will fit perfectly within the holiday theme.


The most quintessential piece of Valentine’s Day is a bouquet of flowers. Sometimes less is more when planning a romantic dinner with your sweetheart, so place one rose over each plate and spread out rose petals on the table. For the ladies, a variety of seasonal flowers, like roses or tulips, in pastel colors would be a beautiful centerpiece.
