Tablescapes: Styling Tips

One of the highlights for us when styling weddings is meeting with our bride and grooms, hearing their styling vision and then picturing how we are going to turn their words into a picturesque tablescape. Your table settings play a major role in the overall styling of your wedding, so here are a few styling tips that come to mind under the themes of: Woodlands, Rustic Elegance and Vintage Boho.


We Like:

  • Exposed wooden tables

  • No tablecloths, maybe a table runner that’s lace or natural in colour

  • Green foliage runner with or without florals, pine cone details

  • OR moss like greenery around floral centerpieces

  • Timber slices to create height (layered textures)

  • Glass jar candle votives

  • Napkins placed in the middle of the place setting, with the place tag wrapped around it.

  • Individual napkins and a sprig of green herb detail to be placed on top of the napkin.

  • Minimal cutlery and glassware

Rustic Elegance

We Like:

  • Tablecloth or Semi exposed (using a table runner) tables

  • Green and floral foliage runner

  • OR floral centerpieces that are wildly structured

  • Tall candles placed in candlesticks OR Tall pillar candles on candle sticks

  • Short votive candle holders (glass, brass, white or an off-white)

  • Charger plates with individual menus placed on top

  • Tent name cards placed above place setting

  • Formal cutlery setting, napkin sitting under the cutlery and multiple glassware

Vintage Boho

We like:

  • Off-white tablecloth with a lace detail or distressed, vintage looking wodden tables (whitewash effect)

  • Clusters of bud vases/different jar vases with mix-matched florals

  • Tall candles placed in brass candlesticks and mix-matched, vintage inspired tea light candle votives (creating different heights)

  • Each charger plate to be vintage inspired and to mis-match

  • Menus displayed near the tables on a chalkboard or wooden board.

  • Name tags tied to the wedding favours either on or above the plate

  • Minimal glassware and cutlery. Crystal cut glasswear in bright colours.
