How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? Perhaps you’re hosting an alternative to a traditional Valentine’s Day celebration, treating your roommates to a Galentine’s Day brunch or celebrating the holiday by yourself. One of our favorite ways to celebrate any occasion is with a table full of treats and snacks, both savory and sweet. Try a Valentine’s Day grazing table for your celebration this year, whether you’re getting together with friends, enjoying the holiday at work or creating a special night for couples. If your celebration looks smaller this year, you can adapt your Valentine’s Day grazing table to feed less people.
When you’re getting your grazing table ideas together, consider the layout of the food as well as other decorations. For Valentine’s Day, try a pretty pink linen table cloth as the perfect backdrop to brownies, dips and more. After you lay out the table cloth, sprinkle the table with rose gold confetti and/or heart-shaped confetti—in this case, we’d say two types are better than one. Opt for white crepe paper flowers to complement all the pink and red on the table. Then, you can add all the tasty treats you’d like.
When it comes to tableware and flatware, there are plenty of options for your Valentine’s Day grazing table. For instance, set out heart-shaped ramekins to act as cute dishes for your guests, or try your hand at a delicious crème brûlée recipe to serve in them individually. Wrap cloth napkins around a fork and knife and tie them off with heart-shaped napkin rings to create a restaurant-quality experience for your special someone.
See our list below for some of our favorite Valentine’s Day grazing table ideas for a lovely day or night.
