How to Set a Brunch Table – Galentine’s Brunch

Are you missing girlfriend time? I certainly miss having fun Brunches and Parties at my house. Therefore, I’ve joined some blogging friends to bring you a new monthly event – Virtual Supper Club. Each month will be a different Theme, with decorated tables, a fun menu and all the recipes.

This month, I’m sharing How to Set a Brunch Table for a Galentine’s Brunch and how to decorate using inexpensive thrift store finds and DIY projects. In addition, all my friends will be sharing their tables with you as well. If you are coming over from Simply 2 Moms, I’m so glad you decided to join us for this virtual party. You will see the link for the next table at the end of my post.

How to Set a Galentine’s Brunch Table

When planning any event tablescape, begin with something that inspires you and build from there.

For this tablescape, there were actually 2 items that inspired the table.

First, the sweet floral embroidered table cloth & napkins that I recently found at a Flea Market. Then these sweet botanical plates with a sweet pink rim. They were only 50 cents each and I immediately knew they would be prefect for the Galentine’s Table.

Galentine’s Brunch Centerpiece

Next, it was time to decide on the center piece. Because I have a good collection of Vintage Milk Glass Bud Vases, I decided they would be perfect filled with some soft touch pink tulips.

Three different style vases were gathered on a Milk Glass Cake Plate, which was surrounded by a eucalyptus candle ring. In addition, vintage butter pat plates, ceramic birds & moss balls were gathered to create a sweet centerpiece.

The Place Setting

Here is a look at the place setting. The oversized plates serve as chargers and are stacked with a ironstone dinner plate, the thrifted botanical salad plates and finally topped with a vintage clear appetizer plate. I didn’t want to cover the beautiful pattern on the salad plates so the vintage glass plates were a perfect choice.

The Lighting

Instead of placing candles on the table, floating candles were added to the DIY Light Fixture. Water activated candles float in the hanging cups filled with food colored water for a festive Valentines feel.

Budget when Planning a Tablescape

Entertaining is one of my favorite things to do and I’m always on the look out for new items to use on the tables. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a fun and festive table. As you can see, most everything used is either thrifted or a DIY project. Even the glassware and silverware are from a thrift store. The pink champagne flutes were only 50 cents each.

These cheap thrift store glass vases are filled with Valentines Candy and are repurposed as a fun place card holders. Each one cost less than $2.50 to create but is still a sweet gift for the guest to take home at the end of the brunch.

Two DIY Brunch Table Ideas

Another creative and inexpensive idea is to make your place cards from card stock. It’s so easy to just cut a heart shape, attach a long tooth pick (with hot glue) and add each guests name.

Chair Charms

In addition, I wanted to decorate the chairs with a fun romantic charm. For this project, an inexpensive package of heart doilies, a length of red ribbon and hot glue easy form a hanging pocket.

Just fill the pocket with any light weight florals. Simple baby’s breath seemed a good choice and didn’t compete with the tulips. One bundle from the grocery store filled all the pockets.

The table is ready for the virtual guests to arrive. You can see the full menu and my appetizer recipe, Artichoke & Sun Dried Tomato Bites now!
