4 steps to create a beautiful and memorable tablescape.
When you host a dinner party, your dining table is the centerpiece of the event.
Step 1-Basic Needs
How many guests are attending? What type of food are you serving? Will the dinner be buffet style, or sit down? What kind of drinks will you serve, and what kind of glasses will you need? Establish these basic needs to get started with planning your table.
Step 2-Establish a Color Palette
Look at the dishware, serving pieces, and linens selected for your meal. Is there a dominant color palette appearing? Create a color palette that’s appropriate for the occasion. And remember to add a little sparkle with glass, crystal, or metallic elements.
Step 3-Lifts and Levels
To create interest on your tabletop, be sure to include lifts and levels. Lifts raise certain elements up to create different levels on the tabletop. Tiered cake stands, floral arrangements, and even decorative boxes are great “lifts” to add height to a tablescape to keep it interesting.
Menu cards, seasonal décor, placecard holders, and favors are simple and memorable ways to personalize your table.
And there you have it-4 steps to create a tablescape that will impress your guests.
