Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if you need new inspiration on how to decorate and entertain this holiday then you have found it! This week I’m participating with 28 bloggers in the Styled + Set Holiday Entertaining Blog Tour hosted by Designthusiasm. If you are coming over from So Much Better with Age, welcome! Today I’m sharing my Valentine’s Day Table Setting with Envelope Napkin Fold.
In past years, I’ve chosen Valentine’s Day decor with a very neutral, soft, and subtle color scheme, but this year will be filled with traditional bright and bold, red, white and pink! The table is set for Valentine’s Day dining. My family enjoys a fun Valentine’s breakfast of strawberry crepes, heart shaped pancakes, or chocolate raspberry Valentine croissants.
Our grocery store had a fabulous deal on tulips so I bought up bunches in creamy white, bright red and varigated deep pink.
Did you know that tulips are very phototropic? This means they are stimulated by light and will keep growing towards the light. So when you make a flower arrangement with tulips, plan on cutting the stems a bit shorter because they will continue growing 1/2 – 1 inch taller in just 24 hours. Rotate your arrangement daily to help the stems maintain a more upright position.
To make the tulip arrangement even sweeter I added M&M’s!
Don’t worry, this chocolate is not going to waste. You can eat the candy when the flowers have faded. My kids have been caught with their hands in the vases, sneaking the chocolate.
The table runner is from HomeGoods and the cute little gold XOXO’s on the table are a great Target dollar spot find.
Making a Valentine’s Day tulip and candy bouquet couldn’t be simpler! All you need is a large glass vase, a smaller glass vase or drinking glass and several bags of M&M’s, red hots, or candy sweet hearts. Place the drinking glass inside the vase and then pour the candy in the open space between the glass and the vase. Slowly and carefully fill the glass half way with water and then add your flowers.
I’ve been having fun with creative napkin folds lately. Did you see my Christmas Tree Napkin Fold video tutorial? This cute little Envelope Napkin Fold is even easier to do!
The napkins are folded into an envelope shape and are sealed with a little heart sticker.
When my family goes to unfold their napkins they will find a personalized little Valentine tucked inside.
