How to Create a Simple Centerpiece
I wanted to chat a little bit with you today about everyday centerpieces + table-scapes. Now, I’m in a lot of houses and see a lot of sad, empty tables + islands. I 100% understand that centerpieces can be considered clutter or difficult to maintain, especially with littles around. I’m here to make a case for them, though, and show you they can be simple, tasteful, and easy to move if you need to.
My easy formula for creating a centerpiece or table-scape:
1. Start with a table runner or decorative placemat/charger. If you don’t want to worry about spills on a table runner, a decorative placemat/charger serves the same purpose of framing the centerpiece, without the extra fabric. You can find a couple of my favorites HERE, HERE, and HERE.
3. Layer in accessories. Choose flowers, greenery, decorative objects, or a mix to create the final layer in your centerpiece. I choose items that will fall below the eye-line to keep the display clean and allow for easy conversation and eye-sight over it. You can find accessories that will work in several different centerpieces HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
And it’s that simple! Once you have the formula, creating the perfect centerpiece or table-scape will be easy-peasy every time!
I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with to dress your tables and make them pretty!
