Looking for a way to create some simple centerpieces for Valentine’s Day? Look no further! With our four simple looks and a few pointers on creating your own, easy to get the perfect look for the perfect night.
The centerpiece should be the focal point of your table. Consider using one of these simple centerpiece ideas in your home:
1. Sweet Tooth: An arrangement almost too cute to eat — oversized glassware brimming with pink, white and red candies. Bring on the sugar rush with festive-hued gumdrops, jellybeans, licorice chews, rock candy, gumballs, chocolate candies, butter mints, yogurt raisins and other candy.
Tip: Achieve the same sweet effect with a cake stand. Fill the tiers with heaps of packaged candies — saltwater taffy, foil-wrapped chocolate drops, cinnamon discs.
2. Pretty in Pink: Fresh-cut flowers in the prettiest shades of pink add the sweetest dose of color to the table. Tuck our Made You Blush bouquet in a pale blue vase, and you’ve got a centerpiece that sings vintage romance. For added charm, nestle paper butterflies and tufts of pastel netting between the blooms.
3. Sealed with a Kiss: A tradition dating back to Victorian times, kissing balls are said to bring goodwill and romance. Make your own by hot gluing felt flowers or dried rosebuds to a foam ball, or spray the ball with adhesive and roll in dried lavender buds. Showcase single kissing balls, or trios of them, under bell jars or cloches.
4. Rooted in Love: Stunning and resourceful. Just collect and clean fallen branches, then paint them white. Arrange them in a clear container, pouring cinnamon candies in the bottom to prevent toppling.
Easy Ways to Spruce Up Simple Centerpieces
- Pick a cute container. Go beyond the vase with oversized glass containers like compotes, cookie jars and trifle dishes. Or take the opposite approach, proudly displaying your decorations under bell jars or cloches’ bell-shaped glass domes.
- Let flowers do the talking. From dinner for two to weddings for hundreds, there’s a flower that speaks to the occasion. Like lavender roses for enchantment, pink rosebuds for happiness and tulips for elegant love.
- Add personal touches. Thoughtful little details, like homemade conversation hearts, hit that final romantic note. Try wrapping bud vases in love letters and tucking heirloom brooches into bouquets, too.
- A new tablecloth makes all the difference. Use fabric, craft paint and a bush to make an inexpressive table runner or tablecloth that’s custom to your style.
Tip: Play cupid with cute placeholders! Use gold thread, paper and craft sticks to make little arrows with your Valentine’s name on them!
