My tablescape inspiration came from these heart sweater placemats. I made these from thrifted sweaters and you can read all the details here.

For my tablescape, I started with a white tablecloth with a ruffled hem. I thought this added a sweet and feminine touch to my table. I added my washed linen table runner from South House Designs for an extra layer down the center of the table.

Next, I added my heart sweater placemats.

Champagne Cocktail

I used white dinner plates from my collection of mix and match white plates. And topped my dinner plates with a red transferware salad plate.

Champagne flutes were added for a touch of elegance and we are sharing a fun cocktail that will be beautiful served in these glasses.

Galentine's Day Place Setting

I folded white napkins to look like an envelope and added a wooden heart for a little extra touch. The napkins are some I have collected from thrift stores over the years and the wooden hearts were on a sheet of stickers from the dollar store. They were unfinished wood, so I painted them a blush pink color with craft paint.

You can see the full post about those here.

I kept the centerpiece very simple and used grocery store flowers in white vases. I bought blush pink roses and cut them down fairly short and added them to a white ironstone chamber pot.

White baby’s breath is displayed in a vintage white vase and white tulips in a plain white vase tied with raffia.

I sprinkled small white candles throughout the tablescape. Candles add such a beautiful ambiance to a dinner party.

A hint about using candles is you should always use unscented so it doesn’t compete with the scent of food.

This Galentine’s Brunch tablescape was super easy to put together using mostly things I already on hand. I spent very little money and created a beautiful setting for a girlfriends get together.

    Hi. I can’t help but notice the salad plate you show on your beautiful table. I have the same dishes, the whole set, that my father bought for his mother when he was in the Navy in WW2. I’ve never seen them anywhere else! Where did Uluru get them?
    Best regards,
