How to Make a Valentine Tablescape

How to Make this Valentine Tablescape

How to Make this Valentine tablescape begins with a theme and a note card.  In keeping with the note writing theme and desserts, this intimate Valentine soiree began with a cute one-of-a-kind envelope backdrop. Several (100) 4 x 5 ½ inch white envelopes with the back flap facing forward are lined up side-by-side and row- by- row creating a subtle chevron pattern.    I decided that I needed one  hot pink envelope to stand out, which picked up on the hot pink and white color scheme.   One white envelope was used as a pattern to make sure it was the same size as the other envelopes.   Worked perfectly!

Now where to put the hot pink envelope?   Since I used double face tape to attach the other envelopes, it was a matter of moving a few around to get the perfect placement.

Other things to make this a note-able event, include an envelope napkin fold and cherry pie pastries. Cupid had to make an appearance too, so he is seen on the top of the pink fondant cupcakes.  I purchased a few other small bites, like petit fours to help round out the sweetness and chocolate fix! Can’t have Valentines’ Day without Chocolates.
