Create stunning tablescapes with simple techniques.
White tablecloths, napkins and flowers can still make an elegant statement,
but there are simple ways to add fun and excitement to a table by adding just
a few elements that you have at home. The most effective way is to add color
with either a colored tablecloth or runner or by using a variety of colored
dishes. Other elements that can be used on the table tops are different
textures of materials such as metallic and glass, organic materials including
moss and river rocks and of course garden flowers and fruit. Try using simple
things around the home to add interest and pizazz to your tables.
