Start With a Base

  • A base for your tablescape is very important.
  • This could be a tablecloth, a table runner, or some other piece that creates a foundation for your tablescape.
  • If you wanted a more dramatic centerpiece, you could even forego a cover on the table.

Anchor the table with a Centerpiece

  • This is the main attraction – the star of the show.
  • Start building and designing it and then go in with your place settings and decor.
  • You could bring in natural elements, or create dimension and texture by mixing colors and metals. For a farmhouse touch, try using a dough bowl or a metal basket.

Pull in Seasonal Items

  • Adding in seasonal items to year round centerpieces and tablescapes, helps create a fresh vibe, without all the work of starting over.
  • For Spring, this could be decor pieces like, fresh or faux flowers, lemons, Easter eggs, greenery, etc.

Use Unique and Personal Place Settings and Decor

  • Your guests want to feel included in your tablescape.
  • You’ve already decided they’re important enough to be at your table, make sure and show them.
  • Be sure and add a focal point to each place setting – this could be something like an name card or a printed or shaped plate (How cute would an egg shaped, floral plate be at the Easter table?!)

Set the Mood

  • Creating the vibe around your tablescape is a VERY important piece to the puzzle.
  • This could be achieved with candles, levels of lighting, background music, etc.
  • You want to make sure your guests feel the same way at the table as you did creating it.

If you follow these quick steps, your dream tablescape can easily become a reality. All you’ll have left to do is put your feet up and relax!
