Creating a tablescape doesn’t have to be complicated. With a couple of additions, you can put together a styled setup:
Layers: Use different sized plates to create a bit of dimension. Alternatively, placemats could work but I prefer not to use them.
Functional accessories: A dinner napkin or, for a special occasion, a printed menu placed in the centre of each setting. Maybe even a little chocolate.
With neutral colours and patterns, you can easily mix and match linens, plates and flatware.
Working with a team of creative individuals who excel at what they do is what makes projects like these come to life. I photographed a Desert and Desserts-themed event which was just published by Australian magazine, Hooray! Magazine.
