To create a reception tablescape that really knocks it out of the park, consider all the individual pieces that will work together to make for a truly awe-inspiring final presentation. You’ll want to put some thought into your centerpieces, color palette, floral selections, china, accent pieces (like candles and vases) and even your table and chairs. The truly phenomenal tablescapes are those that blend all of these components together into a seamless work of art.
Depending on your budget, you might have more to work with in terms of china, stemware, silverware and furniture. However, even if you don’t have a budget that is sky high, you can add small details that will have a big impact. Looking for a few examples? Well, I’ve got you covered!
Take a look at this photo I found on Pinterest that shows the tablescapes for a French country wedding. All the elements work perfectly together to create just the right vibe – from the antique tables to the vintage tablecloths and overflowing lily centerpieces. Everything is just right! This is a more formal and elaborate example, but this photo from Pinterest shows a simpler tablescape that would be ideal for a rustic, modern occasion. The simple details of the checkered napkins and the delightful brown paper bags demonstrate how big of an impact inexpensive flourishes can make for your tablescapes.
I have one final example of an awe-inspiring tablescape that you can see in this photo found on Pinterest. I wanted to be sure to show you all this one because it is a perfect example of taking a simple color and turning it into something breathtaking! This tablescape design embraced purple and used a variety of shades to really bring the table to life. The bold purple, silky napkins under the dinner plates juxtapose beautifully with the tinted purple glassware and vases. Pops of lilac hues are added to the presentation with actual lilac flowers and the wedding favors.
