Valentine’s Day Tablescape Idea: Cupid Dinner For Two
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and I haven’t thought about what I want…. yet. Yes, let’s admit it. Valentine’s Day is all about the ladies (sorry Guys!). Whether it’s a diamond necklace, a new bracelet, flowers, sexy products from Victoria Secrets, or her favorite perfume, the guys know they have to go big or go home. Thankfully for my hubby, I am not a big material person, nor am I into the whole flowers and candy three-ring circus. I love gadgets, or something that will be practical (like a day at the Spa, a weekend to myself, etc).
Many times when people pull the go big or go home act, they overspend. I don’t want you to overspend on a Hallmark Holiday, so be sure to read tips on How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day on a Budget. In keeping with the theme of staying on budget, let’s not forget the cost of going out to eat on Valentine’s Day! While many restaurants will have specials going on, I have an even better idea!
Stay home and cook your own Valentine’s Day Dinner.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money or have a lot of Valentine’s Decorations to pull off a small, intimate experience. Hopefully my Cupid Dinner for Two Valentine’s Day Tablescape Idea can give you some inspiration on decor ideas. I actually used leftover Christmas decorations. Yes, you heard me right. If you have Christmas decorations, including wrapping paper just laying around, let’s recycle and reuse!
I stopped by Hobby Lobby and picked up the Cupid plates (around $3 bucks each), making this the only purchase I made towards this idea.
I laid leftover Christmas Chevron White & Black wrapping paper across a small table, covering it with black mesh. (all items were purchased at Hobby Lobby).
Then I took two black vases and inserted tall, white candles.
I used black chargers, regular white plates, and then topped it with the Cupid Chevron plates. Simple white napkins wrapped with snowflake napkin rings were placed to the left of the plates (I used them in last year’s design as well!). Then adding wine and water glasses finished off this simple Valentine’s Day tablescape.
And here is the final look: An intimate table setting for two!
This idea only cost me three dollars. I do believe in finding ways to be frugal and using what you already have on hand. So, before you rush to the store to buy a ton of Valentine’s Day decorations, stop and look around your house. As you can see in my tablescape design, everything doesn’t always have to be about the color pink. Last year I did a pink design on a frugal budget that you can check out here: Valentine’s Day Table Decor idea.
Regardless of where and how you decide to spend Valentine’s Day this year, I hope it’s the best one yet!
