Simple Valentine’s Day table setting

Welcome to this “Valentine’s blog hop”. Hope you’ve enjoyed Joan’s style on her blog 2 Ladies & A Chair. Always so sensational!
For me, neutrals have been my main focus for some time now when it comes to décor. Natural elements that might include plants or accessory pieces like marble or quartz, often help in bringing life into the space that has been decorated with a neutral palette. This approach to interiors has been like a blank canvas from where I can start adding (color) and build from that.
So while Valentine’s Day normally calls for pops of red and pink, this year I’ve opted for a more subtle look. To keep things simple (taking into account 3 daughters, a dog and a husband), I chose to decorate the dinner table with something that will last a bit longer than a heart shaped chocolate.
To make a bold statement over this table, I made a flower arrangement with some big foliage pieces (eucalyptus, sprayed roses, olive branches, etc) and used some of the leftover branches to create little heart shapes that will decorate each plate. I thought that after Valentine’s Day these pieces could be reused in the form of a banner with a cute ribbon. Also that flower arrangement will adorn my table for a couple of more weeks.
To keep with my “simple” theme, I personalized some fabric napkins with the word “LOVE” written with chalk… yes, CHALK! Afterwards I can just throw these on the washing machine without any harm done to them.
Flowers… check! Cute décor… check! Mix-and-match dinnerware… check! Simplicity at its best! Now, how are you planning your Valentine’s Day décor? Are you going all out, or will you keep things simple?

    This table is sooo amazing! I would never think of neutrals and green as Valentine's, but you've definitely pulled it off. I love the flower arrangement, and the Love napkins tie it all together. This is a seriously gorgeous table! (and don't be surprised if next year mine is neutrals too!)
