What is tablescaping?
With a play on words, tablescaping is the art of dressing your table or shall we say landscaping your table. It is the process in which you create and consider how you are dressing your table, often heavily decorated with a mix of candles, crockery and flowers.
With our feeds full of beautiful indoor and outdoor table dressing inspiration, everyone is looking further than the mainstream brands to create their vision. Increasing demands for prints, colour, and glass treasures means keeping your eye out for the unique, niche, sustainable brands that take your tablescaping up a notch.
Tablescaping is the perfect way to set the mood.
One thing to remember is there are no rules but here are some pointers from the experts. An easy way to think about your colour and pattern is to come up with a theme depending on what food you are serving or the time of day it is. For example, if you are hosting afternoon tea you might want to consider plush colours and delicate prints. It’s like when choosing an outfit, only you are now choosing the outfit for your table.
Embrace the clash of prints, mix’n matching stripes with florals giving it an enchanted feeling. Play around with different napkins, placemats and table cloths that give you ample opportunity to go wild with bright colours and playful prints.
