Eiffel Tower Romantic Inspired Valentine's Day Tablescape

Once again the Eiffel tower became the inspiration for my romantic Valentine's Day tablescape!
 I used the Eiffel Tower for another tablescape in 2015 as seen "here" in case you'd like to check it out! 

This is what is underneath the red napkin.  I flipped a candle holder over and used the square bottom which happened to be about the exact size for the Eiffel Tower.  I wanted to raise it up higher and was glad I found something that could do the job!  I also put some clear plastic stick-on feet to the candle holder so the ceramic wouldn't scratch or move on the mirror.


 As I began my thought process for this table I gathered all my dishes and accents together.  I decided these oversized mugs would work great as vases.  As you can see I used a half round styrofoam piece for my flowers.  I picked up an oversized white hydrangea flower that I centered and a spray of red roses.  I snipped the roses off and pushed them down here and there.  I already had the glittery red hearts on sticks in my saved goodies.  I shortened the sticks to fit each spot.  Since I was preparing this a bit early before Valentine's Day I chose not to use fresh flowers.

 I assembled each on on this plate and had some glitter to clean up afterwards!

 Mirrors are easy to use, inexpensive and can create such a nice reflective and romantic element.

 The dishes were found at Hobby Lobby last year and are made by 222 Fifth which is a label I've come across at various places.  These set the tone for a bit of a more contemporary tablescape design.

 I chose the white (Ralph Lauren) dishes because they reminded me of lace doilies.  When we were kids those paper lace doilies were popular for Valentine's Day.  The black dish has a bit of a square shape so I chose that to balance the look with the Eiffel Tower dishes.

 I chose to make the napkins flat and place them across the dishes to go with the angular lines created with the mirrors, place mats, and dishes.   The flatware adds to the contemporary feel of this tablescape too.

These clear crackle wine glasses from Pier 1 are another favorite.  They always look great with red wine poured in them!

 I  used these dishes last year for my Valentine's Day table as seen "here".  I added the two placemats on the ends with the thought that serving dishes could be used and then later some dessert.

 We've had so little sun I was grateful to capture some images with the bright sun flooding in the living room nearby.  This table could be used for a luncheon with the girlfriends or in the evening with another couple for a more romantic mood.

 In the early evening the sun shines through and I captured a couple of nice shots! 


 I added a tealight candle for some romantic lighting!

 I had these red colored tealights that I saved from Pier 1 that worked out well.

 The gold hearts have been in my stash for a few years which I got from Michael's.  The red napkin is part of a set I bought from Pier 1 several years ago.

 Just to be different I removed the napkins and set them off to the corner.  I like to explore different ideas.  Now you can see the flatware better too!  Go with what makes you happy!


I hope you enjoyed my Eiffel Tower inspired tablescape and got some ideas for yourself!

  1. Ooh la la Liz...a perfect table celebrating Valentine's Day and the city of Love! I love your choice of flatware with your square plates and your oversize mugs as vases. You captured the perfect sun-dappled photos highlighting your table. As always it’s a pleasure to blog hop with you this week. Happy Valentine’s Day. ♥

  2. Liz, super sharp plate stack! I really like the graphics in those 222 Fifth plates. They give a real urban, masculine look to an otherwise feminine touch. Your tricks for display are great on the tower and the floral arrangements. I like both napkin looks too. Those Pier 1 crackled glasses are so nice. Blenko made that crackle glass way back, and it's nice to have an updated look (my clear Blenko are not so clear anymore over the years...) Sunlight on the table and int he angles of your photos - just gorgeous

  3. Liz, tres chic and ooh la la for sure. The city of love and the Eiffel Tower are perfect symbols for Valentine’s Day! The mugs make wonderful vases to receive your flowers. I have similar cityscape plates and they are always fun to use. Any friend or couple would feel pampered to sit at your lovely table. It is a pleasure to blog hop with you!

  4. The Paris theme is popular on this hop this year, perfect romantic inspiration for Valentine's day. Those plates are fun, and I love your heart print napkins. Both ways you placed them look great.

  6. Hi Liz, I am ready for romance at your lovely Paris-inspired table. It is such a cozy feeling. (Something I am sure you know is very welcoming while I am dealing with cold and heavy snow in Wisconsin.) What a lovely escape to see your bright red and white table with flowers and candlelight. I love your use of mirrors and your heart print napkins. Your pictures at varying time of the day is so lovely. I love when soft, end-of-the-day light streams in on the tablesettings. Even more romantic. Happy Valentine's Day. (And stay warm.)

  9. Delightful tablescape, Liz! Paris is one of my favorite cities! I missed those plates at Hobby Lobby! Shucks!
    Very creative to place the Eiffel Tower higher. Your flower arrangements in the mugs are perfect. The gold hearts below La Eiffel make it pop.
    Charming post as always.

  10. I'm convinced that I should have at least one Eiffel Tower piece in my collection. Elevating it on the overturned candle holder was a great idea and the pretty red napkin really sets if off. I love how you used lines and shapes to create a very cohesive look.

  14. Bonjour Liz, I love that we both created interpretations of an Eiffel Tower inspired table this year --- great minds think alike? And with some of the same Parisian scene plates too. Especially like how you used the oversized red mugs as floral containers, as well as the way you positioned the red napkins across the plate stack --- tres chic mon ami!
