Hosting a Galentine’s Brunch? We have some amazing ideas for a gorgeous Galentine’s brunch tablescape for your special party.
In today’s crazy world we all seem to be spending more time at home and less time going out.
But even though we aren’t socializing or entertaining as much as we used to we’re finding ways to stay connected.
We didn’t get to see family for birthdays, graduations, or holidays this year but we did have lots of fun with virtual celebrations.
Thank goodness for Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Facetime, etc.
Some of our friends have decided to start a virtual supper club. It’s a fun idea for you to stay connected with family and friends.
If you’re visiting from our friend Jen, at Midwest Life and Style, or if you’re new to our blog, Welcome!
We’re AnnMarie (darker hair), and Anne (light hair).
We’re friends who live right across the street from each other. We love to share simple (and budget-friendly!) ideas for home decor and DIY’s, healthy meal inspiration and recipes, and tips for raising teens and beyond.
You can read more about us here.
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.
For a virtual supper club, everyone shares their recipes ahead of time.
Then you each make the same meal, schedule a time to get together virtually, and eat “together” at home.
We’re starting our virtual dinner club with a Galentine’s Brunch!
Today we’re sharing our tables all dressed up for Valentine’s Day.
You’re gonna love the round-up of recipes we put together for this brunch!
Our other virtual parties include:
- A St. Patrick’s Day table and the Dinner Menu where we brought the dessert
- A Spring Brunch table and the Brunch Menu where we made the appetizer
Then you can connect with some of your girl friends, each create a pretty table, and all make these recipes for your very own virtual Galentine’s celebration!
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 to last right through spring.

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.
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.
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.
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 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 it along the length of the wood tray and wrapped it around the bowl and candlesticks.
And our Galentine’s Day centerpiece complete!
Now let’s see how we set the table for brunch…
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 there’s another peek at that soft skinny table runner with a string of wood beads that Anne made.

The beautiful heart dough bowls are 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!
A bottle of sparkling rose is sitting on a small wood riser just waiting to be opened and enjoyed!
Now you’re almost ready to host your own virtual Galentine’s brunch…well at least your table is!
