These tips are part of an Instagram series called #iCanHelpYouStyle in which some of my most talented blogger friends will be sharing some ideas and great insights on how to style different parts of your home. This time around we will help you style your “dinner table” just in time for the Holidays. Remember to follow along these guys for some of the best ideas:
Choose your concept: Either a color, a form or simply an object; choosing the theme or concept for your dinner table will make its arrangement so much easier. I love starting my tables by choosing the accessory that will decorate my dinner plates. For my Christmas table I chose an old pear ornament set that seems to be decorated with tiny beads. The background color and its texture were the starting point for my inspiration.
Crate a centerpiece: The centerpiece of a table doesn’t have to be complicated. Setting a beautiful flower arrangement (flowers can be from the grocery store), or like in this setting, a group of similar accessories in different heights; will bring interest to your table.
Balance: I like setting the centerpiece of the table with a certain symmetry. By repeating objects in both sides I will create order and a more pleasant look throughout.
Ambiance: Candles are my to-go accent when creating ambiance in my dinner table. I can lit them during the day for a softer look but specially at night for that romantic and warm feeling.Combine plates: Since we live in a small house, space for storing seasonal dinnerware sets is limited. Instead I like combing the plates I already have. This is always something that will generate a more collected look for those of you that enjoy a relaxed decor.
