Set the Scene This Valentine’s Day With a Lovely Tabletop Design
Designer Jennifer Hunter shares tips for creating a swoon-worthy tabletop.
Whether you are looking to create a whimsical spread for a girls’-night-in Galentine’s celebration or a romantic setting for a candlelit dinner, designer Jennifer Hunter shares her top tips for creating a swoon-worthy tabletop for Valentine’s Day.
- Start with linens, as a tablecloth will serve as the backdrop for the tablescape and make quite the statement. You will want to consider the color, pattern, and size of your tablecloth.
- Add lots of layers, bringing in decorative objects from other parts of your home. I always love incorporating little objets from my Herend animal collection, decorative vessels, and even on-theme accents like lipstick and costume jewelry. It is these unexpected accents that keep your tablescape dynamic and engaging.
- Create height in your tablescape. Try incorporating varying heights to add visual interest and keep your eye moving around the table. A few easy ways to do this is through candlesticks, cake stands stacked with donuts, and floral arrangements.
- Think outside of the box. While fresh flowers are always a must, try bringing in seasonal fruit or petit fours to create a still life. This adds texture, interest, and makes your table irresistible!
