The arrangement of items on a table that produces an attractive or decorative effect. Or, put simply – the art of laying a beautiful table.
Our Tablescaping Top Tips
1. Get Thrifty
It’s a great excuse to visit the local charity shop or your favourite antique shop for decorative bowls or centrepieces or get crafting with your children to create beautiful place settings.
2. Embrace MismatchIt’s all about playing with depth and height – so don’t feel like the table has to have lots of matching items of the same size and shape. Elegant tall candles can pair beautifully with dainty tea lights and little jars of handpicked flowers from the garden will rarely look out of place next to a bouquet from the florist.
3. Don’t Forget the Food!
Remember to consider what you’re serving when decorating your table, if you need space in the middle of the table throughout the meal choose to decorate with something you can remove easily or remember to leave space. Foliage is simple, elegant, and when delicately placed – you can’t go wrong.
4. Light It Up
