Romantic Tablescape Guide


We are so excited for the Pin it Co. Cafe! Details on the beautiful Tablescape Below! 

This week, in honor of Valentines, my girls (and my fella) got together to create this beautiful, romantic tablescape! I am so obsessed with the way it turned out, and so I wanted to share it with all of you! 

 For the place settings, I created this sweet spring set-up. When creating a place setting, you always want to use layers. I typically like for the bottom layer of my place settings to either be some sort of textured placemat, or in this case a bread board, that really works to draw attention to each setting! For plates, layering is once again the key. You want to combine one large and one smaller plate, keeping with a color palette that you will carry throughout the tablescape. I used this silver metal charger in combination with a simple white plate. Remember, when styling you can utilize the simple elements you already own! They help draw attention to other pieces in your display. 

I also like to use cloth napkins in place settings, and these gray and white plaid ones did just the trick. I topped off the setting with a sweet birds nest. You want your topper to be something that coordinates nicely with your centerpiece and the overall look you are aiming for. 

Of course, don't forget your silverware and glasses! I loved the romantic feel these etched wine glasses had!

Moving on to the centerpiece, I really wanted to create something with a lot of texture and layering for a romantic feel. I started with this long tray with metal handles as the base for my centerpiece. It added a base height and tied in the wood from the bread boards. For the floral centerpieces, I picked three different vessels! This was probably my favorite part. I love combining elements that are different, yet coordinate with one another-- and these three metal vases did just that! I potted real plants inside these and added spanish moss for a draping, romantic look. I chose simple green plants for the other vases, and a more whimsical floral plant for the middle. To variate the height, I placed the center vessel atop of three vintage books! I've said this before, and I'll say it again, for something you can find at a thrift store, vintage books are some of my favorite things to add into decor!

To keep things from being totally symmetrical, I added a small terra cotta pot, and titled  it on its side. I also potted a small plant and added spanish moss in this pot as well.

To really cap off the romantic feel of this tablescape, I added four tapered candles and candlesticks at varied heights! These looked so sweet in the centerpiece and would be so sweet lit for a dinner with you and your sweetheart!

Overall, this tablescape was so fun to create and I loved putting it together with some of my best girls! If you create your own tablescape with any of these items, make sure to DM me pictures on my Instagram @allyturpen !
