How to Style a Simple Beautiful Galentine’s Brunch Tablescape

Hosting a Galentine’s Brunch? We have some amazing ideas for a gorgeous Galentine’s brunch tablescape for your special party.

Do you love to entertain?


Oh…good we do too!

Since you love to entertain like Anne & I, you’ll love our monthly virtual supper club posts.

Every month we get together with our friends Stacy, Rachel, Jen, and Michele and share our tablescapes and recipes on our blogs.

It’s so fun to see what everyone in our group comes up with each month because there’s so much talent and creativity in this bunch of bloggers.

Get the links to all our tablescapes for even more inspiration at the end of this post.

Valentine’s day is quickly approaching…are you doing anything special to celebrate this day of love?

We both have lots and lots (and even more time) with our hubbies since they both work from home. lol

And we truly love them to death…we promise…you can even read all about our individual love stories here on the blog.

Wait until you read the job Anne had when she met her husband, Kevin here.

AnnMarie and Chris met in college…not as unique of a story but you can read about his dorky pickup line here.

Although we are both happily married and love to celebrate this holiday with our husbands sometimes it’s super fun to have some time with just your girlfriends.

If you’re visiting from our friend Jen, at Midwest Life and Style, or if you’re new to our blog, Welcome!

What’s a Virtual Supper Club?

Ok, so what’s a virtual supper club exactly, you may be asking yourself?

Well…it’s kind of like a progressive dinner party. Have you ever been to one? Let us explain…

In the good ol’ days you would travel to a different home for each part of the meal.

Appetizers at one home…

Soup or salad at another home…

Main dish at another…

Dessert at the last.


We started this virtual supper club as a way to stay connected to people that you may not be physically able to visit for dinner on a random Saturday night.

But these ideas are perfect for entertaining whether you’re near or far!

You’re gonna love the round-up of recipes we put together for this brunch too!

How to Create a Beautiful Centerpiece

We decided to style AnnMarie’s dining room table in a soft feminine color scheme with lots of greenery.

This is a brunch for the girls after all.

The centerpiece looks beautiful against the white table but leaves plenty of room to add place settings later.

And the neutral colors we chose are perfect not only for Valentine’s Day but would be a great addition to your table through the entire spring season.

Although you can’t see it in most of the photos, we started creating our centerpiece on a long wood tray that AnnMarie often uses in her tablescapes.

She styled the tray last spring and in the fall with pretty pampas grasses and of course again at Christmas.

It’s a neutral piece that’s so easy to use as a starting point when designing a tablescape.

Next, we used two washed linen skinny table runners on top of the wood tray to soften the look.

These table runners are the perfect size to scrunch up around your centerpiece to add amazing texture.

You have to check out how Anne styled her skinny table runners for fall and again on her Christmas dining table.

Some of the best home decor pieces can’t be found in big box stores but in local antique shops.

Or maybe even in your mom’s home!

That amazingly gorgeous antique copper pot was a gift from Anne’s mom.

It’s the perfect accent to all the greenery on our Galentine’s brunch tablescape.

If your mom doesn’t have a vintage copper pot to give you then you may want to check out this beautiful reproduction from Wayfair here or this similar set of three from Amazon here.

We used the pot in the middle for some height and filled it with pretty airy greens and peonies.

And what about those beautiful peonies?

Can you believe they’re faux?!

Anne found them last year at Magnolia Home in Waco, Texas.

Unfortunately, they no longer have them for sale online but we found some similar faux peonies here.

What’s a tablescape without candles?

And because we both like symmetry we agreed on adding two candlesticks to either side of the antique copper pot.

These white DIY candlesticks that AnnMarie transformed coordinated with the soft feminine look of the centerpiece.

Finally, using lots of greenery completed our centerpiece.

The base of our greenery started with a simple lamb’s ear garland.

We laid the garland along the length of the wood tray and wrapped it around the bowl and candlesticks.

Next, we added more faux stems of lambs ear, eucalyptus, and a couple of pink Queen Anne’s lace.

Our Galentine’s Day centerpiece is done and ready to entertain but first, we need to set the table.

How to Set a Galentine’s Brunch Table

We decided not to set our table with traditional place settings.

Since this is a brunch, we wanted a bit more of a relaxed feel.

Can’t you just envision the laughter and chatter among friends at this pretty Galentine’s brunch table?

Soft sage green striped napkins compliment the soft green in the lamb’s ear on the centerpiece.

And here’s another peek at that linen skinny table runner with a string of wooden beads that Anne made.

The beautiful heart dough bowl is from Antique Farmhouse.

We each received one in our swag bag at a conference we spoke at last week.

What perfect timing because it looks simply perfect on our table holding the silverware!
