This Rose Quartz and Gold Elegant Tablescape is right on time for Valentine’s Day but will also work well for a bridal shower, or ladies luncheon. For a ladies luncheon depending on the makeup of the group, I would remove the love sign. In a larger setting, I think this would be a perfect sweetheart or bridal table. As with my Gender-Neutral Valentine’s Tablescape I wanted to pay homage to the holiday and not go overboard with pink hearts.
At the beginning of the month, I pulled out everything that could be used for a Valentine’s light or luxe table. From there, I gathered items that could be used on the same table. The only things missing were my latest purchase from Efavormart. The rose quartz napkins and tablecloth and gold sequin runner. These three pieces set me back approximately $27.00 which is a darn good price. They have become my go-to spot for ordering linens and they’re not paying me to say that. However, if you’re listening Efavormart I’d be more than happen to test a few of your products. Just saying.
Once the tablecloth and runner were in place, I sat out the floral chargers. Seldom do I use just one or two pieces for the center display and on more than one occasion I’ve had to dismantle the whole thing to make sure the runner was centered correctly. Also, when using a table runner, I prefer to place two chairs on each side of the table. Using the traditional one chair on each side and one at the ends works better for me. I don’t like to have the place settings on the runner. Next came the centerpiece.
My vase collection is rather sparse, and I almost had to go eenie-meanie-minee-mo to choose this clear one. When using faux flowers, I don’t like the stems to show. Yet another quirk of mine. On hand, I had gold and pink filler, but it wasn’t enough to hide the stems. Instead, I used water absorbable beads and they worked like a charm. I placed a small amount of the filler on top of the beads which added a bit more bling.
On each side of the vase are ivory votive holders accented with clear beads and crystals. Flanking those are bronze colored mercury glass taper holders.
In front of the vase is my nod to the holiday, a gold “love” sign. It has small feet on each end so that it sits flat on the table.
The color palette and the floral motif of the chargers blend well with the tablecloth and runner. When I was gathering pieces for potential tables I came across these gold dinner and salad plates. Honestly, I totally forgot that I had them. That lets me know that I either have too many dishes or I’m not nearly as organized as I think I am. Or, a combination of the two. The rose quartz napkins were folded lengthwise and wrapped around the dinner plate. Small gold and white appetizer plates top the stack. Gold-tone dessert forks finish the stack and gold tone flatware complete the cutlery.
I used rose colored stemmed goblets and crystal ones to complete the setting. This table feels nice and calming after the hoopla of the holidays. I think I’ll leave it up a little longer before I move on to the next one.
