Consider Surroundings Decoration
When you are setting your table, consider the surroundings as they will be playing a role in creating a beautiful scene. Match your decor with the tablescape, so they complement each other and bring the best out of everything present in the scene.
For instance, if you are setting up a vintage table, then placing some glossy vases of different sizes in the surroundings of your tablescape will enhance the table profile. However, the focus should be going for the table theme and decor that will complement its surroundings, rather than choosing to change the entire place settings just to match it with the table.
Add Fancy Tablecloth
Unless you don’t want to achieve a rustic look from your tablescape, spread out a fancy table cloth on the table’s top. Consider creating a contrast with the plates and tablecloth, as it will provide it with an elegant look.
Experts suggest tablecloths creating a contrast with the plates directly affect your appetite and make the food taste more delicious. So, spread out a table cloth with the table runner to provide it with a polished look.
If you are partying in the spring, then opt for the mesh white tablecloth. White table cloth can go with any table decor and brings the best out of everything presented on the table.
