Be Mine Backdrop

Roses are red, violets are blue, we're obsessed with this balloon garland, how about you? We used our Valentine's Balloon Garland to frame our sweet treats table with the cutest little heart-shaped latex balloons and gorgeous pops of gold! In addition, we added our XOXO Balloon Set and Lips balloon to the balloon garland to tie the theme together!

You don't have to keep banner sets together when decorating—you can mix and match banner sets as we've done here! We strung strands from the Love You More banner set and XOXO Banner Set to decorate below the balloon garland. Then we used the XOXO part of the banner to line the front of the table. There are so many different ways you can style banners!

Sweet Treats Table

We couldn't have a Valentine's Day setup without the dessert table. Our XOXO Table Runner lines the middle and sets the stage for the large display of treats and delightful decorations.

Front and center and the star of the show, we have a gorgeous pink cake to which we have added our Sweet Kisses Cake Topper. In addition, we have smaller cake stands on either side of the cake with an assortment of heart-shaped macarons and petit fours, keeping with the pink and red theme, of course!

valentine's day party favor

Guests will need something sweet to drink, so we found these Jones Fufu Berry Sodas, a perfect Valentine's Day drink. We used a delicate string to tie our Gold Heart Straws around the bottle. Adding straws to your bottles is a quick and easy party trick to add decoration or give as a party favor!

In the middle of the table, we fanned out some of our Heart-Shaped Girl Power napkins, which are perfect for a Galentine's party! Setting a stack of napkins on the dessert table makes it easy for guests to grab their snacks.

Finally, we filled some Pink Striped Valentine's Baking Cups with heart-themed snack mixes. You can fill our baking cups with small treats or fill them with cupcake batter and bake them in the oven.

The True Love of Table Settings

We used the same XOXO Table Runner for the tablescape as we did for the sweets table. These table runners are so long that you're able to cut them to whatever length you need and even split them across two different tables.

valentine's day cupcakes

In the middle, we have a cake stand with store-bought cupcakes placed inside the baking cups that we put snack mix in on the other table; as we said earlier, these baking cups are versatile! 

valentine's day table place setting

We set the table with large gold plates at each place setting to make the Pink and Red Color Block Plates pop! We also added little heart boxes of chocolate as a little Valentine's gift! Another idea for a sweet party favor treat is heart-shaped cake pops.

Utensils are essential, and these reusable Red and Gold Reusable Cutlery ties the red and gold color palette of the table together. We even have a reappearance of our Heart-Shaped Girl Power napkinsunderneath the cutlery.

Guests can get their sweet sips using our Pink Pinstripe Cups with the same Gold Heart Straws that are adorning the soda bottles. 

valentine's day table decorations

To add more dimension to our table, we scattered some Valentine sprinkles as a fun additional decoration! Of course, you could also use confetti and tinsel to add some glitz and glam. We also picked up some gorgeous flowers from our local grocery store to create small floral arrangement centerpieces. Plus, every Valentine's Day party needs beautiful flowers on display!
