How To Create an Instagram-Worthy Tablescape In 5 Steps

How To Create an Instagram-Worthy Tablescape In 5 Steps

Make your next dinner party or event pop with this step by step guide to styling the ultimate tablescape! 

Step 1 - The base

Let's start with the table. Your surface will depend not only on your colour palette or theme, but also your choice of dinnerware, glassware and centrepieces so keep this in mind. It's best to opt for a neutral table or tablecloth if you plan to go wild with colourful glassware and plates.

Step 2 - Dinnerware 

Next, pick your dinnerware and cutlery. To make your tablescape look professional, add a larger patterned or coloured dinner plate with a smaller plain one on top. Personalised place cards are a nice touch or even a menu if you're hosting a special event!

Step 4 - Florals 

Add flora and fauna to your tablescape for texture and depth. Placing stems in simple mason jars with in-season blooms can give a feeling of freshness as well as providing a pop of colour. Or if you're after a bolder look, try a unique shaped vase

Step 5 - Candles

And of course what would an Instagram-worthy tablescape be without decorative candles? Experiment with unique shapes such as a bubble candle or for a more classic look, go for a range of coloured taper candlesticks. Try different sizes and colours to make your dinner party or event one to remember.
