5 Simple Ways to Create a Unique Tablescape

Tablescapes are kind of our thing!

Setting a beautiful table is one of the most simple ways to express your love & gratitude for someone. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive to make it unique… a little creativity and intention can easily make even the most simple tablescape stand out.

Napkins with fun colors or patterns, that are folded (or wrapped or knotted!) in unique ways is a simple way to add a little extra color, texture and excitement to your tablescape!

Silverware placement is something that we love to play around with (& break all of the rules). Crisscrossing, stacked above the plate, forks on the right side... get crazy! Silverware also help set the stage for the style or mood you’re going for.. modern, traditional, vintage, etc.

Table runners can be anything from ceramic tiles, to hand placed greenery, to ripped material with raw edges.. we love experimenting and using unconventional objects and materials to create something extra unique and fun.

Glassware is the #1 way to add height to your table! We recommend pairing a tall glass with a shorter glass in order to create dimension. For the budget conscious bride, glass goblets are the easiest and most cost effective way to add something special to your overall wedding design!

Candles can accentuate and pull in the main color of your table, plus they really set the mood. Yummi is one of our favorite candle brands because they have such a wide variety of styles and shades. We encourage you get creative and try using multiple candle colors together!
