Create A Timeless Tablescape for All Seasons

Seasonal Decor

November 12, 2022

I am all about tablescapes that don’t break the bank and allow you to use items you purchase for more than one season.

If that sounds like something insterests you, my best tips are below.

I use these in my own home and my client’s homes as well.

Every table needs an anchor. That can be a runner or a tablecloth.

I’ve used this one in two client tablescapes this Fall and love the simplicity.

I like to center the table with some type of vase, large or small.

Make it easy on yourself and change out the florals depending on the season.

Here we went with a faux deep green eucalyptus that could take you through every season.

Every table needs some “glow.” Add in some chunky candles, tapered candles, twinkle lights, etc.

The glow from a candle kindles a warm, welcoming, peaceful atmosphere for your guests.

I am big fan of battery operated candles that come on with a click of a remote, can be set on a timer and look as close to a real flame as you can get.

Sprinkle in some of the seasons bounty along your runner. Here we chose white pumpkins in various sizes and shapes.

When choosing ways to display your place settings, make sure you take into consideration the balance of light and dark.

For instance, here we were working with a stained table for our backdrop. While the client had beautiful wood chargers, they would not have stood out on her stained wooden table.

There is no need to get rid of your wooden chargers if you have a wooden table. Try using them on a white table in your kitchen or lay down a light placemat under them so they will pop against a wooden table

Because this client loves pops of black, I anchored the place setting with a ribbed black charger and a white plate.

I then added in these faux mini green wreaths and topped with these grateful, thankful, blessed wooden cutouts.

What I love most about this look, is that it can literally transition into every season.

Here it is for Fall.

At Christmas, I could see the wooden cutout replaced with an ornament. For Winter, I could see it replaced with a snowflake or mini stack of birch wood. For Spring, I could see a few faux robin’s eggs nestled in there.

The possibilities are endless.

Add in a seasonal napkin or a solid one from your stash, some flatware and there you have it.

I love this way of styling a table.

I recommend buying the anchor pieces once. Large pieces you love: tablerunner, vase, candle sticks, chargers, etc..

And then add to it small seasonal items that won’t break the bank every time a new season or holiday comes around.
