This black, white and blush pink tablescape combines a black and white striped tablecloth with pink and white place settings to create a beautiful Valentine’s table. A centerpiece made with roses and candles adds even more romance to the ambiance.
This year I’m trying something I haven’t done before. Hosting a Galentine’s Day dinner for a few of my girlfriends!
I love the idea of celebrating your female friendships the day before Valentine’s Day. Even if it did originally come from a TV sitcom.
To be true to the original show, I should technically be hosting a brunch.
But since Valentine’s Day doesn’t always fall on a weekend and I am not part of the “ladies who lunch” set (in other words, I have to work), dinner it is!
In any case, I’m going to need to set the table.
So I put together this Galentine’s Day blush pink tablescape in honor of the occasion.
I think it’s pretty enough to use for any event when you want a romantic table setting!

For the place settings, I decided to use pink and white plates on top of white chargers.
The colors remind of roses.
So when I found pretty rose napkin rings*, I knew they were perfect addition to my table decor.
I love the combination of roses and greens. They add the feeling of spring to the tablescape.
One of my favorite ways to get the “perfect” napkin is to pair 2 of them together.
One of them provides the main color or interest, while the other one has pretty trim.
Finally, I sprinkled some vase filler in gold dots, pink hearts and pink flowers around the table.
Last week, I came up with some DIY floral centerpiece ideas that are really easy to make.
Since they also have roses in them, I decided to use them for my blush pink centerpiece.
I put down a gold-edged table runner.
Then mixed and matched a few of them down the center of the table to create a really pretty focal point for the table.
The pink really pops on the black and white striped tablecloth*.
The buffet decor
The stripes in the tablecloth and the row of roses down the center all draw your eye to the wall at the end of the table.
So I had to make sure there was something to look at there, too.
A Valentine’s Day floral heart wreath ties in with the roses on the table perfectly.
And the candelabras add even more romantic ambiance to the room.
Now that I have the table figured out, I can’t wait to host my girls night in 🙂
Of course, all of this will have to be away this weekend in favor of footballs and beer (Super Bowl party!).
But it will be easy to set back up now that I know what I’m doing.
