tabletop decorating tips
Simple display ideas for setting the table and entertaining are not limited to the holidays -- everyday is an occasion to show off your design style, tabletop or otherwise.
Tip #1: theme
First, decide what kind of statement you want to make based on the entertaining and event theme you are hosting. Whether a dinner party or cozy dinner for two, decide your primary theme and style.
Tip #2: pick one object
We know it's hard, but select one object that fits into your entertainment event. Consider items that can do double duty by staying on the table as this is the baseline element that you will build from. If for example you are throwing a wine party, consider something like a wooden serving tray pictured to the right is a good example) that can hold tea lights, crackers and other serving items throughout the evening. By selecting an item that adds both design and functionality, you extend the longevity of your tabletop decorating through the evening.
Tip #3: build around your object
Next, add elements that support your design theme, but keep decor simple. Simple decor provides a big impact with functional design. Incorporate these design elements into your tabletop setting, serving pieces, drinkware, and other focal points for your event.
