1. Create Simple Centerpiece Statements On Smaller Tables.
Above we have a beautiful winter tablescape with a simple, almost minimal design. This simple look provides a festive, winter look to the table without taking up too much space. When it comes to designing your tablescape you need to know the size of the table and how much space it actually provides for the centerpiece, decorations and actual dining. You might have a good sized table, but after the table is set that space you thought you had no longer exists. Maximize your table space by eliminating the large, unnecessary centerpiece. Give the space back to you and your guests while you are dining and enjoying each others company.
2. Create A Festive Winter Scene On Larger Table.
Are you daunted by the task of decorating a large table for the holidays? Don’t bother bringing down box after box trying to decorate the large table. Instead you should create a fun and festive winter scene with smaller pieces to act as the table centerpiece. This will allow you to fill up the large table by giving it a full, decorated look. The tablescape above demonstrates this perfectly. They only used a few small pieces to create a full, winter scene as their centerpiece on the table. This leaves plenty of maneuverability and functionality for anyone sitting at the table enjoying their meal.
