Looking for Table Scape Inspiration?
I love setting a table, and just because we can’t entertain doesn’t stop me popping on a vintage table cloth and adding a vase of flowers or two. It doesn’t haven’t to cost the earth to create a stylish and fun table. Firstly decide on a look. Maybe a colour will lead the look? Or the menu?
Table cloths, in my opinion, are a must. Then you can layer the table with various items. I’ve used bed sheets as a cheaper way of finding a large linen cloth, vintage curtains, and upholstery fabric that is double width.
I adore vintage crockery and have oodles of the stuff! Yes I use it everyday, I don’t believe in keeping things for best. I pop in the dishwasher and hope for the best. If it ruins, I’ll buy some more. Our local vintage emporium sells all types of crockery and china, always a bargain to be had. And its repurposing so doing my bit for the environment.
The devil’s in the detail – this Mediterrean style table used simple styling. Taupe Fringe Edge Linen Napkins and Seagrass Placemats add a rustic charm. Black Dinner candles are popped in bud vases, whilst the glassware is simple and in earthy tones. Everyone loves a Cabbage bowl! https://www.thelittlebrickhouse.co.uk/product/large-cabbage-bowl/
Candles are a must. Coloured Dinner candles in mix of shades add to the colour pop of this Terracotta & Tulip Table https://www.thelittlebrickhouse.co.uk/product/rustic-dinner-candles/ Wooden Candleholders are grouped in collections https://www.thelittlebrickhouse.co.uk/product/rustic-wooden-candlestick/ .
It doesn’t have to be formal. A casual picnic, with a splash of wine and a few peonies. https://www.thelittlebrickhouse.co.uk/product/picnic-basket/
And I have to have flowers. They are the finishing touch! Bud vases are an easy way to add flowers as they only require a stem or two. Big headed blooms cut short work well, whilst more whimsical delicate stems should be kept long. They don’t have to be from a florist shop – snip some foliage from a hedgerow, try a few branches from a fruit tree… https://www.thelittlebrickhouse.co.uk/product-category/flower-vases/
Have Fun! If you enjoy putting together you’re table then you’re guests will enjoy the result…
