Valentine’s Day tablescape

This Valentine’s Day tablescape takes its artsy flair from neon colors contrasted with black. So while it includes the traditional hearts, flowers and candles, these come with bold graphics and a sleek modern table setting.

Galentine's place settings with pops of color

Up close, you’ll discover that the place settings are actually a happy hodge podge of DIY elements. Napkin rings made from hot pink plastic beads, place cards of letter cutouts on black board, hand-painted candle holders, and heart-shaped woven boxes filled with candy!

Paper centerpieces in bright pops of color

No fresh flowers to arrange? No worries. Check out the creative centerpiece idea crafted out of cardboard circles painted with floral graphics on bright-colored backgrounds.

On the luncheon buffet or drinks table, you can keep up the DIY pop art look with decoupaged soda bottle vases holding cheery gerbera daisies or hand-made paper flowers.

Galentine’s Lunch Menu: Simple Suggestions

Food prep and serving shouldn’t take away from the fun with your friends! So we recommend no-fuss menu options like a selection of soup, salad and sandwiches. Or a make-your-own sandwich bar with choices of breads, fillings and garnishings.

For some healthier Valentine’s treats to serve, consider fruit-based mini pies, tarts and parfaits and gluten-free baked goodies—following the great recipes in these links.

Then, for the luncheon drinks, pour on the love with Valentine’s-themed cocktails or perhaps some fruity concoctions. And of course, for a toast to your “forever friendship,” end the ladies’ luncheon on a bubbly note with champagne!
