Summer is such a fun time to entertain guests, so why not think outside of the box on your next tablescape? Creating a tablescape isn’t about being “matchy-matchy” or stressing over having the finest linens and china. Try focusing on these four elements to create a more meaningful experience that reflects the season, or your personality and interests.
- Color — Think napkins, flowers, candles, place mats and even the table itself.
- Layers — Start with a charger and work up to a dessert plate.
- Texture — Metallics, woods, shiny, rough, smooth, matte — the sky’s the limit!
- Height — Be aware of different heights and how well you’ll see the person sitting across from you.
Easy, right? We can all do this, and your friends and family will not only notice when you do, they will know you that you went out of your way to make them feel special and loved. This, of course, is so BoomerSmart!
Living and loving life together,
