Whats New? Tablescapes!
If you have never heard the term tablescapes, don’t feel bad – it is a relatively new term. ”Tablescape” is used to describe not just the centerpiece but, instead the overall design of the table, the landscape of the table. Hence – ‘table-scape’. Tablescapes are about bringing the entire wedding into one spot and focusing on how all of the elements of color, style and theme fit together. It is about using the components of your wedding to complement one another in one spot: the table.
Designing the perfect tablescape can be complicated and trying to squeeze all of your colors and themes into very few objects can be quite tricky. Although I have never personally heard of anyone’s head exploding , I think it is quite possible in this case.
Keys to a stunning tablescape:
Pay attention to the entire table – not just focusing on the centerpiece.
Use favors in the design scheme of the table.
Incorporate table and seat markers into the design.
Instead of traditional white dinner plates – use colorful or patterned china to bring out the colors of your event.
If patterned china is out of the question, consider using decorative charger plates to accent your design
Compliment the food choices with your design choices.
Remember – although you are ‘landscaping’ the entire table, it doesn’t have to be cluttered or over-the-top…. it is about details. Making sure each ribbon, each flower, each plate, tiny element is just right and perfectly proportioned to suit your needs.
