Simple tablescaping

Tablescaping is one of my favourite parts of entertaining and can be as extravagant or as simple as you like, depending on what the occasion is. This particular table setting is a simple way to style an autumn table without having to purchase too many bits and pieces but still looks really impressive!

I love fabrics and introducing them to my table through tablecloths and napkins, but if you do not want to use tablelinen and have a wooden table, use a roll of hessian cut to the length of the table and place it down the middle. For this simple scheme we used plain white napkins tied with a piece of string and cut a piece of artificial eucalyptus and placed a sprig in behind the string as well as a piece of pussywillow. I also used the single stems of pussy willow in small jars dotted around the table. We used the same foliage right down the centre of the table as well as some artificial thyme and white fern all intertwined. The eucalyptus comes wired and you can bend them to create the base and then slide in the additional pieces to add as much or as little as your table needs.

For this setting I have used plenty of candles. I used some of the classic white dinner candles in some of our glass bullet candle holders which come in three different heights so you get that lovely layered look. I also have some of the artificial pillar candles which are fantastic because when you’re using greenery you want to keep the flame away from it. Finally I also like to use a glass tealight holder placed in front of each table setting. I also recommend using tealights in a clear casing to avoid the metal look that you would get from some candles.

If you are to make an investment for table scaping the one thing I would recommend is the wireless table lamps that we stock in two sizes in either bronze or black, the charge is amazing on them and they really transform the table.

I believe in elevating the everyday dining experience. If you are going to the trouble of cooking a meal for people, the simple extra layer of some candles, nice glassware and crockery, can make a meal a moment.

Our popular cordless lamps are an essential styling item for every table setting! These attractive lamps are wireless and rechargeable which allows for mobility and elevates the ambiance of any table setting.
