Here are a few simple ways to make your table look stunning.

Create Ambiance with Candlelight

Lighting is key. It creates the perfect mood for your guests, whether it’s bright and fun or soft and elegant. Simply adding candles can transform your tablescape into an inviting atmosphere where everyone can relax and enjoy. Incorporate a mixture of colors or create a moody feel with black candles. And don't forget your candlestick holders -- like these elegant glossy black ones or these vintage rose-colored glass ones. Whether you lean towards farmhouse, modern or glam, you can easily incorporate your own sense of style with trendy candlestick holders.



Add in a Green Element

Adding a touch of nature is the easiest way to make your tablescape stand out. Buy fresh greens or opt for faux greenery. One of our favorites is eucalyptus - you can add some in garland or springs. If you're hosting a more formal dinner, add some silk rose or hydrangea bouquets. Or if you prefer a boho vibe, this faux pampas grass can provide the perfect touch.


Add Character with Glassware

Bring in a unique feature with glassware. Add in colors or patterns to bring something special to your table. Try swapping out regular water glasses with these vintage goblets or colorful tumblers. To add some real personality, opt for some fun multi-colored glasses. If you're hosting a fancy dinner, impress your guests with these modern and sleek wine glasses or these crystal and gold glasses.


Layer with Textures

Adding texture doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. For a natural feel, use a cheesecloth or macrame table runner. If you're going for a fancy vibe, add a touch of chiffon. Even your napkins can help add some charm to your table. We love these simple linen and cloth napkins -- such an easy way to add texture and style!


So if you're looking to impress your guests, try incorporating some of these tips into your tablescape ideas. Best of all -- these tips can be used year-round, whether you're hosting friends or enjoying a home-cooked meal with family.
