Happy Valentine’s Day! And of course, you had to expect that on a wedding-focused blog, we were going to totally eat it up. To celebrate today, how about a fun Valentine’s tablescape?
In coming up with a way to have striking tabletop decor at your wedding without spending a fortune, it’s important to think outside the box on materials. A classic wedding tablescape features a floral centerpiece — but that can be expensive.
Enter the humble cookie cutter. In pink and red hearts, they are the perfect foundation to a tablescape. As a bonus, they cost about a buck. And paired with inexpensive ceramic lovebirds, they make for the ultimate ode to love.
To make this tablescape yourself, you must first find cookie cutters. I found mine at a local kitchen store, but buying them online or in bulk is most likely to save you more money. These ceramic lovebirds came from Target at $2.99 each. That means that for $25, you can have a set of lovebirds and 19 cookie cutter hearts at each table. Pile the hearts up, scatter them around or put one on each plate. It’s sweet, romantic and even a bit modern. Happy Valentine’s Day!
