Tablescape VS Tablesetting

Are you getting ready for Easter? I have been practicing tablesettings for Easter Sunday . Did you know that there is a difference between tablescapes and tablesettings ?

A tablescape is a theme and the centerpiece reflects it and dictates the whole table and tablesettings. A theme can be color based, centerpiece or occasion .




Above are some examples of styles

I decorate with a French chic style. I want my guest to feel like they are walking in the countryside of South of France....

I use chargers and cloth napkins and you can use cloth placements too. If I don't use a table cloth a runner is a must. I love this striped table runner from a recent collaboration with Vintage Farmhouse Finds. I have added table risers here for the decor that can be easily used for hot items for serving.

Pier 1 is a great source for plates and napkins.
