Tablescaping Makes The Ordinary Extraordinary – Here’s How I Do It!
What the heck is tablescaping?
Let’s be clear. I will never be a tablescaper… I’m a table-setter. That’s what my mother always asked me to do “please set the table”, not “please tablescape the table”. Tablescaping is a bit of a fad word really. Someone decided to make setting the table into something that would trend across social media platforms. #Tablescaping and all that!
It’s really nothing new though. People have been artfully arranging table settings for thousands of years. Tablescaping is simply dressing a table. You can keep it as straightforward or make it as complex as you like! Okay, now that we have that elephant in the dining room out of the way, let’s talk about setting your table.
My thoughts on ‘tablescaping’...
It’s rather easy to do, plus it makes cleaning up much easier. Why don’t more people do this? I guess we’re all too busy or we don’t remember how those homely touches make us feel.
Of course, if you are hosting a dinner party, or inviting guests around for brunch, you’re going to put the effort into making your table look fabulous.
But why do we choose to set the table for guests only, rather than for ourselves? I’m hoping you’ll see how easy it can be to add simple elegant touches to make every day that little bit more special. For you.
A picture-perfect table Now, though I am a clothing and accessories designer, I also create beautiful home accents. From pillow shams to tablecloths, placemats, and napkins, my range is all about classic shapes, elegant colors, and patterns.
It’s just another way of turning moments that might be overlooked into something special that gives us a tiny bit of joy. How nice it is to have a well-dressed bed, to settle onto and read your favorite book.
I’m all about using style sense to create special moments and that’s what I’d love to share with you in this blog.
