Who says decorating for the holidays has to be only about Christmas lights, gnomes on the mantel, and the biggest tree ever? Other ideas, such as tablescaping for New Year’s, provide the perfect chance to show off your kitchen remodel or dining room renovation.
Let’s take a look at how creating a beautiful tablescape can help light up the room and ring the new year in with style.
What is tablescaping?
Originally coined by TV chef Sandra Lee in 2003, tablescaping is the act of artfully arranging tabletops to reflect a particular mood or theme. In the real estate world, it’s often used in staging homes that are going on the market. However, tablescaping is becoming more trendy among homeowners simply for everyday living and dressing things up for special occasions.
As you think about tablescaping for New Year’s, here are some factors to consider:
- Accessories – Will they simply be for show, or do they also serve some sort of function?
- Style continuity – Although you may be creating a tablescape for a special occasion, the overall theme should blend well with the style of the room.
- Use coordinating colors – The hues used in your tablescape vignette should coordinate with the room’s dominant color.
- Group like objects but vary their height – For example, a group of candles provides more visual interest when you place them together but in varying heights.
- Incorporate greenery – Just like you use greenery when stylizing your mantel, you can use garlands or other greenery to provide color, life, and texture for your tablescape.
