Valentine’s Day Table Setting: Coral & Aqua

I am so excited to share our Valentine’s Day Dining Room Tablescape with you this year – using pinks and blues.  It’s a fun, decorating twist on the “traditional red” table setting, and it brings in a little coastal cottage vibe as well.   Plus, you’ll be able to use these same colors, and transition directly into spring or Easter table top decorating too!  Yes, please!  You can use the tips and tools that are provided, or create your own little masterpiece!   So, let’s get to it!  Valentine’s Day Table Setting:  Coral & Aqua.

Love decorating for Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day Table Setting: Coral & Aqua

I do love decorating for Valentine’s Day using different colors than the traditional red – just to keep things fresh each year.

  • So, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box and just remember to have fun with it!!

Here is our table setting from last year (2020) using purple, lavender, and berry:  Setting a Purple Easter Table:  Spring Decor.

#1:  Coral Stripe Table Runner

The first thing that you will want to do is start off with a coral table runner to anchor your table centerpiece.  

  • I love the look of this farmhouse-style runner because it adds a subtle pop of coral, and the stripes lean to the coastal cottage look. 
  • The stripes also help “elongate” the dining table so that the entire table looks larger than it is.

TIP:  No table runner?  You can always use 3 or 4 placemats, a folded tablecloth, scrapbook paper, or whatever you have on hand.

#’s 2 & 3:  Aqua Tin Pails/ Floral Centerpiece

The next thing you will want to do is set up a centerpiece onto your table runner.

  • I found my scalloped aqua tin pails last year at Target, and have been waiting for the right moment to bust them out!
  • You can use the ones linked in the supplies (above), or simply buy some silver tin pails and spray paint them aqua.

You will simply add one white floral stem to each pail, and fill with 2 coral pink flowers:  Total of 3 white floral stems and 6 pink floral picks.

TIP:  Place an empty glass jar into your pail, and  tuck paper towels around the stem to keep the flower from moving.

#4:  White Place Setting /White Wreath Charger

Since this tablescape is quite busy (lol!!), you’ll want to keep your table place setting simple and white.

  • I decided to go with my standby of white plates and white bowls, and then added the white wreath “charger” for a little added texture.

Sometimes it’s the little things that add the biggest impact – right?

# 5:  Seafoam (Aqua) Napkins 

Now that you have your white, neutral dinnerware in place, it’s time to add some seafoam-colored napkins to tie in those aqua tin pails.

  • I do love to mix different shades of color when decorating just to keep the eye moving along the vignette. 

So here, you’ll notice that the napkins are a little darker…..and a little greener-blue (hope that makes sense) than the aqua tin pails.

#6:  DIY Heart Napkins Rings

If you want to save some money, try making your own napkin rings.  

I really do love how these napkin rings turned out.  They are very simple, but add just the right touch to bring all of the colors together.

#7:  Blue Hobnail Tea Glasses

These sweet blue hobnail tea goblets really add the vintage vibe to the tablescape.  

Can you tell how your eye moves to the right – towards the glass?  

  • This is another example of using slightly different colors together to add visual interest to the vignette.

Since the tin pails and glasses are both pastel (have the same color depth), they work beautifully together. 

Plus, it keeps things from getting too matchy-matchy.

#8:  Pink Wooden Hearts

Now that your table place setting is complete, it’s time to add a couple of valentine’s day decor accents to your vignette.

  • I have to admit that these small wooden pink hearts may be my personal favorite accent pieces – of the entire room.  
  • There is just something about the way the soft pastel pink sequins shimmer against the soft aqua pails.

I found my hearts at Home Goods.  You could try to make your own (DIY), or try the ones that I linked in the supplies above.

#9:  Be Mine – Felt Sign Garland

It just seems like no tablescape is ever quite complete without some type of valentine cheer!

  • I chose this valentine garland because of the darker pink color of the letters, and I loved the dark red hearts with it.

Plus, using garland gives you more decorating possibilities. 

  • You can use it on your table runner, or even hang it on a mirror behind your table (see below #10).

#10:  Heart Wreath

Of course the heart-shaped wreath hanging on the mirror behind our table, is just another way to add valentine cheer!

  • I found my (coral/pink berry) heart wreath from Home Goods, but a red heart would work as well.

TIP:  I also tied a small turquoise bow on mine – just to pull the colors together, and draw the eye up to it.

It’s the little things…..!
