Tablescape for Parties…

18 Aug

With items you already own!

Tablescaping adds interest to any party table. First decide on a theme, then gather items around your home that speak to that very theme. Collect more than you will actually need. Think about the desing principles, scale, balance, symmetry, colour etc. Arrange and re-arrange until you are completely satisfied. Think about creating levels, high, medium and low.

The image below was a tablescape created for a birthday party buffet. None of these items were purchased. The bubble gum machine, car and tin were toys from childhood. I added a baby picture of the birthday boy, which was displayed in his office prior. The arrangement is focused in the center of the table, the food was placed around the outside which enabled guest to access the platters of food easily.
