A Bold & Bright Tablescape
A red and pink tablescape featuring a lush centrepiece bursting with whimsical blooms adds depth and personality to this gorgeous colour scheme.
Pink cocktails are a must for any celebration that pays tribute to Valentine’s Day.
Instead of long-overdone blush pink bridesmaid dresses, opt for a pink in a mauve tone for a more modern look.
When it comes to your ceremony backdrop, consider adding a pop of colour with a gorgeous red and pink arch.

Blush Is Beautiful
Pink helium balloons decorated with photos of the bride and groom make a super cute backdrop for a sweet table setup.

Linens That Pop
Enrich your wedding tablescape with red napkins for pops of Valentine’s Day colour.
Neon signs are a fun way to communicate the theme and spirit of your wedding to your guests—and they also look super cute in photos.
