Pink and White Valentine’s Party

What could be better than a day devoted to sweet treats and loving those near and dear to our hearts? A party to celebrate, of course! This year I wanted to style a pink and white Valentine’s tablescape to hopefully inspire you to enjoy a party at home this year with your friends and family. Or perhaps you’re just looking for a few table ideas for dinner with your Valentine! Grab a few of the tips below and you’ll be on your way to a stylish party tablescape!

I start off each party table with a color scheme so all the pieces of the party are coordinated. I chose a bold pink and white palette for this table. It’s easy to pull together with items you already own plus a few from the store. A simple white table covering (this is useful year-round) is topped with a hot pink fabric napkin to add a pop of color in the center.

Everyday white dinner plates serve as the base for each place setting with pink fabric napkins. Topping each white plate are hot pink striped salad plates. These also serve as fabulous dessert plates. Look for festive colored plates at home stores to use year-round!

DIY favor boxes filled with chocolates are the perfect take-home favor for guests. Simple white craft boxes are wrapped in coordinating hot pink ribbon and topped with silk flowers for a sweet favor in addition to doubling as table décor.

A quick trip to the grocery store to pick up plain white vanilla petit fours from the bakery is the perfect start to a delicious sweet treat. You can also decorate simple cupcakes bought at the bakery too. So if you don’t have time or you’re not a regular baker, embellishing store-bought is the way to go! I added disco dust (an edible glitter) to chocolate hearts to top the petit fours for a little touch of sparkle.

You can create your own decorative Valentine’s cards at home or pick out your favorites from the store that coordinate with the table. Set them on the table and display at each place setting with your sweet Valentine’s note inside. It’s these little touches that truly make a party a memorable event.

Style a simple centerpiece with hot pink tulips and a white vase. It doesn’t have to be complicated to be sophisticated and stylish. The coordinated hot pink and white color scheme is a fabulous one for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy playing hostess with the mostess and create your own Valentine’s Day party! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. To keep things edible, the glitter needs to be edible, too. DIsco dust is NOT EDIBLE because it’s plastic craft glitter. Edible glitter is made from gum arabic, sanding sugar, or gelatin.
