Here are our Top 5 tablescaping tips because a playful table makes every meal an occasion.

1. Pattern play all day

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns! Once you layer in your placemats and plates it won’t feel so busy.

2. Create a centerpiece focal point

My mom is the queen of backyard floral arrangements. Scavenge outside for free florals and greenery if need be.

3. Different heights & textures

Tall candlesticks paired with low bowls or votives adds visual interest. I also love a tiny cordial glass!

4. Make it personal

Add place cards or small favors for guests to take home.

5. Don’t forget to enjoy the gathering

Prep the food and drinks in advance, so you are free to enjoy your guests. Better yet, order takeout. If the host isn’t having fun, no one is!
