I’m Switzerland when it comes to Valentine’s Day. It’s always a busy time of year for my husband, so we don’t really celebrate. I’m aware it’s happening, especially as I scroll through social media but it doesn’t have any special meaning for us as a couple. The thing is, I do want my husband to buy me flowers, but not on February 14. Hear me out. Flowers are outrageously expensive on Valentine’s Day. You see, I would prefer him to grab me a cheap bouquet when out grocery shopping some random day throughout the year. The fact of the matter is, I royally screwed myself in the flower department in the early days of our courtship. I told Mr. Chic(ish) that I didn’t want flowers on Valentine’s Day because they were too expensive. Insert foot in mouth. Well guess who has not gotten flowers since? This girl. I guess the joke is on me! :)So why the tablescape? Listen, I will find any excuse I can to throw a party and/or go to brunch. So this year, I’m grabbing all my gal pals and hosting a Galentine’s brunch. The great part about this is you don’t have to limit your celebration to only February 14th. This year, I’m also particularly excited because I have teamed up with two other bloggers, Hilary and Cecilia to bring you their version of a Valentine’s Day tablescape. They each have their own unique personal style and I know you’ll love them as much as I do. Just call it a Valentine’s Day tablescape 3peat!
I already owned a lot of the items used in this tablescape. The items I purchased include the following.
Dollar Tree: the large and small pink doilies, (place mats and layer under teapot) and the red candies.
Hy-Vee: a dozen white roses.
Target dollar section: the heart shaped place card holders, the red heart name tags and the pink cupcake stands.
Thank you so much for tuning in and I sincerely hope this serves as inspiration to host your own Galentine’s brunch. Don’t forget to stop over to see my girl Hilary’s tablescape and also Cecilia’s tablescape. You won’t want to miss them!!
Now, if my gals don’t come over soon, I might start talking to this teapot!
If you still haven’t had enough pink and red, check out my Valentine’s Day tablescape from 2019 here.
See ya on the next post.
