Jane Austen Print & Valentine’s Day Centerpiece Idea
Originally published January 31, 2017.
In case you can’t tell, it was a ton of fun to going back in time and envisioning beautiful garden parties in Regency England to design this print for you. I also put together a simple but pretty (and fragrant) Valentine’s Day centerpiece in our breakfast nook that can help you bring a fun or romantic touch to any weeknight dinner.
I have wanted to set up a romantic tablescape for Valentine’s Day for a long time. For this tablescape, I decided to build it around the quote from Jane Austen:
There could have never been two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved.Jane Austen
I need to pick up Persuasion again one of these days. I’ve always loved this particular quote and the romantic agony of Anne pining for Captain Wentworth and their star-crossed relationship.
I designed the printable to be reminiscent of an English garden. I chose flowers in soft pinks and greens to complement the quote.
Jane Austen English Rose Valentine’s Day Centerpiece
The Valentine’s Day centerpiece is a bower of romantic roses, seeded eucalyptus, and pepper berries. This is such a classic combination— and it smells amazing, just like an English garden.
Part of my concept was that this simple Valentine’s Day centerpiece could elevate any weeknight dinner into a little holiday celebration, whether just for you and your partner, or your whole family.
After all, most of these simple flowers and greenery are available right at the grocery store (that’s where I got them!).
Naturally, since the flowers are out of the water it would have to be a centerpiece for a single dinner. The good news is that you can then put the flowers in water and create an arrangement that will last days beyond your initial event.

I displayed my Jane Austen print on a shelf right by my table. For those who are curious, the exact shelf is no longer sold. However, I sourced a similar one here, and it looks like they take custom orders — so you could have pegs added like mine!
This rustic frame was purchased many years ago and isn’t what I’d choose if I could pick a frame today to fit this theme. I think this 8×10″ Jane Austen print would look so pretty in a simple and elegant gold float frame like this one!
Overall, I hope this combo of the Jane Austen print and the Valentine’s Day Centerpiece help you elevate a simple night near the holiday into a mini celebration.
