Tablescape: An artistic arrangement of articles on a table.
Before I became a blogger, I had never heard the word tablescape. And even though I’ve claimed to do a few, I had to Google the word to get the official definition for this post.
With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, we’re heading into serious tablescaping season. This is the time of year we’ve all training and writing for all year. It’s the World Series, Olympics and Super Bowl of DIY and pretty.
All over blog land, you’re going to be seeing tables decorated with dough bowls, bolts of burlap, gorgeous china, shiny silver and accessories we can’t even begin to imagine.
Since I’m in training for the holiday season, I’ve been spending all my walking hours watching game film of my fellow bloggers (In other words, I’ve been pinning ideas on Pinterest like crazy!)
What I’m learning from the tablescaping pros is that you don’t have to have your grandmother’s tablecloth or fancy store-bought placemats to set a gorgeous and festive table.
Let me present to you 17 of the coolest, most unique and creative table settings out there. (And they’re budget friendly, too!)
