Steps and tips on how to create an elegant tablescape. A tablescape is a creative arrangement on a dining table with centrepieces.
As we emerge from this strange hinterland, dusting ourselves down and looking forward to the future, we can once again think about sharing food with friends and family. Maybe not in a restaurant for a while, but in our homes where I think there will be a real shift towards entertaining and creating a wonderful space in which to dine and welcome loved ones again.
Why you should make a tablescape
We adore a gorgeous tablescape at The Grey Works! It is so easy to be creative on a table top in whatever space you have whether inside or outside for lunch, tea, supper or dinner. Be it formal, casual or makeshift, anything goes and it can be a wonderful way to express yourself and immerse yourself in the process.
Steps to creating a tablescape
My Mum was (and is) an absolute sticker for a well-dressed table, particularly on a Sunday when the best table finery would be laid. My siblings and I were taught to start with the table linen, an absolute must and do look out for our brand new range of French linen tablecloths which we have developed exclusively which will be hitting soon. Placemats would follow and then of course the “best’ silver cutlery (only on a Sunday or for a dinner party) then candles and napkins and of course a floral centrepiece.
