Hello friends I hope you’re doing well. I’m so happy to be joining my friends on today’s styling tour, hosted by Town and Country Living.
In this post, I wanted to give you a little glimpse of my process which I use to style my dining room.
When styling a tablescape, I always have a focal point. This is usually a centerpiece that I’ve created, either a vase with flowers or a vignette or arrangement. I made this one from grocery store flowers. I simply created a grid using tape and inserted the flowers.
I then collect different items within our home that contain similar colors, such as napkins, plates, bowls etc. Always shop your home first.
I did buy this egg garland at Michaels and cut it so I could use the eggs. I mixed the fake eggs and real eggs in a bowl. As you can see they coordinate well with the tulips and flowers in the centerpiece.
I then set what I call a ‘fake set’. I place the items along the table in various groups of threes each of varying heights.
As you can see, I do this all along the table. This way of setting the table feels more relaxed and it’s as if life is happening at the moment…
I will move items around and if needed, I’ll add height to create more depth to the table.
For this particular table, I decided that the cakes were taking away from the pretty centerpiece, so I decided to remove them.
I think the cake as stand alone, would be a beautiful centerpiece. I’ll have a tutorial of this cake later on next week but for now, I removed it from the table.
And kept the table super simple…
I removed most of the items from the table.
And let the centerpiece take the spotlight…
And there you go, a little bit of the process of how I set my tablescapes. Please don’t forget to visit my friends below for more beautiful decorating ideas.

Your centerpiece is stunning! The colors are so soft and gorgeous… 🙂 I sometimes do the’ fake set’ too, but never gave it a name. I like that! Also love the use of the theory of threes – always works in visual presentations and done beautifully here. Lovely!!
