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.
Planning a Galentine’s Brunch is great for getting your girlfriends together for some much-needed girl time. Planning events such as this is essential for your mental and physical health. I’d like you to please read more about the importance of Planning Girl Friend Time.
Today’s Brunch is part of our new monthly Supper Club series.
If you are joining us for the first time, we are a group of friends who love to entertain, and when entertaining in person wasn’t recommended, we started a virtual supper club in January 2021.
If you are joining me from Simply 2 Moms, Welcome! I know you loved every detail of their table.
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 two items that inspired the table.
First, the sweet floral embroidered tablecloth & napkins that I recently found at a Flea Market. Then these lovely botanical plates with a sweet pink rim. They were only 50 cents each, and I immediately knew they would be perfect for the Galentine’s Table.

Galentine’s Brunch Centerpiece
Three different style vases were gathered on a Milk Glass Cake Plate, 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 an ironstone dinner plate, the thrifted botanical salad plates, and finally, topped with a vintage clear appetizer plate.
I wanted to avoid covering the beautiful pattern on the salad plates, so the vintage glass plates were perfect.

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 Valentine’s 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 much 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 Valentine’s Candy and are repurposed as fun place card holders. Each one costs 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 easy to cut a heart shape, attach a long toothpick (with hot glue) and add each guest’s name.
Just fill the pocket with any lightweight 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 now see the full menu and my appetizer recipe, Artichoke & Sun Dried Tomato Bites!
