It’s easy to create a charming tablescape with these creative decorating tips:
- Build a centerpiece by starting with a decorative tray that matches your dining table décor. Other ideas would be to use a pretty charger or possibly a jute or woven placemat.
- Group candlesticks of varying heights on top of the tray. Typically, three items on the tray is a pleasing number. For example, use just three candlesticks or use two candles and a vase with a simple bouquet of fresh blooms.
- Use cloth napkins. These can be folded and placed in the middle of the plate, secured with a napkin ring (also laying on the plate), or stuffed casually in a glass or coffee cup at each place setting.
- Mix textures, colors, and shapes for a unique table setting. Here, I used square woven bistro placemats instead of chargers under my Tuxton Home dinnerware (Artisan Agave White and Azure Teal).
