Last week I posted about Valentine’s Day Party Invitations. If you have decided to host a Valentine’s Day Party, it’s time to work on the decorations to set the mood.
When we attend one of our Supper Clubs, the mood is set as soon as we enter the house of the host. The table is always beautiful. It can be casual or it can be formal but it is always welcoming.
Following are some of my favorite Valentine Party decorations. Some are whimsical, others elegant, but they all say LOVE!
Greet your Valentine’s Day party guests at the door with this adorable XO Wreath via Place of My Taste. Visit your local craft store for the wreaths and embellish them in pink and red berries. The white bow is striking against the black door.
You can create a pretty heart wreath out of coffee filters. Who knew? There is a tutorial at via Bye Bye Soccer Mom! You can do the outline of the wreath as sown below or you can also make a solid wreath that she shows on her site.
Valentine’s Day Party Centerpieces
If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I am a fan of low centerpieces at a dining table. I like being able to see across the table without the obstruction of a large floral arrangement. This collection of red roses in small square vases lined with leaves are perfect for a Valentine’s Day centerpiece. Elegant yet simple. (source unknown)
I love the different shades of pink in this stunning collection of pink tulips and peonies via Splendid Sass. The mercury glass vases add a touch of sparkle to the table.
I recently bought a can of Krylon spray paint from Michael’s that will give me the effect of mercury glass. Can’t wait to spray some old floral vases to jazz them up.
I love the simplicity of these single roses in a collection of bottles that I found on Decorating Your Small Space. You can use the same colored flower but I like the variations shown here.
For years I disliked carnations but have recently grown very fond of them, especially when they are grouped together tightly as shown below in this ombre effect centerpiece from Everything that Sparkles.
Valentine’s Day Party Flower Balls
If you have a chandelier over your table, you can use a wiffle ball to create a hanging floral ball such as this one found at The Crafty Blog Stalker. You can use silk flowers, tissue pompoms or maybe even real flowers that would only last for the dinner party. If using real flowers, they would have to be hearty flowers that won’t wilt quickly such as carnations or mums.
If you would like to create a floral ball from real flowers, you can find a tutorial at Fresh Ideen. You can hang the floral ball or you can place on a candlestick to form a topiary type arrangement.
Festive Tissue Paper Pompoms
As I mentioned in a previous post, one of our Supper Club members hosted a Valentine’s day party last year. Marti used tissue paper pompoms for her centerpiece. Here is a tutorial on how to make the pompoms.
Valentine’s Day Napkins
Another way to add a festive touch to your place setting is to use the Heart Napkin Fold found on Bright Settings to create a heart-shaped napkin. Red or pink napkins would look so pretty against white dishes.
It’s always nice to let your guests know what they will be served and I love this paper menu napkin ring via Say Yes. So easy to do on the computer!
For Wine Lovers
This cork shaped heart will be a nice addition to your Valentine’s Day Party bar or Hors d’oeuvre table. You can find the instructions at Sand and Sisal.
Dinner Party Candles
A Valentine’s Day party should have a romantic ambiance and these floating candle vases fit the bill!
Valentine’s Day Festive Ice Cubes
If you are serving champagne or white wine at your party, plan ahead and freeze some flowers in ice cubes for this special touch found on Trishy Rose.
Add some special ice cubes to your water glasses by freezing pomegranate seeds in ice cubes as found on Joyful Scribblings.
These Valentine’s Day party decorations inspire me to want to have a party! I love all of the elegant touches to make the evening special. Your guests are sure to enjoy a lovely evening.
