How to Create the Perfect Table Setting
Designing the perfect table setting is like creating artwork. It's all about layers, texture and color.
1. Start with your Centerpiece
When it comes to creating a beautiful table setting, it's easiest to start with your centerpiece and work your way out. Your centerpiece will help determine the overall theme and colors of your design. Remember, centerpieces don't necessary have to be flowers. It can sometimes be a unique dining item or a beautiful accent piece. Now is also the time to add your table runner, before you start layering on additional items.
2. Add your Necessary Items
Keep in mind that while you want your table to look beautiful, the design also needs to be conducive for eating! Silverware, glasses, plates and napkins can all take up a considerable amount of space on your table. Be sure to also make room for other necessary items such as the salt and pepper shaker and butter tray before you start adding extra decorative pieces.
3. Final Touches
Once all of your essential items have been added, now is the time to add colors and textures to your design. Unique napkins rings or serving dishes can be added to complete the look. Incorporating greenery or decorative eggs in unexpected ways also can give your table a playful pop of color.
