Are you tired of a dull and uninspiring dining table? Even on days when you’re not hosting guests or dining outside the usual dining room, it’s essential to keep your dining table looking fresh and inviting. Skip the boring tablecloth or protective cover and consider these eight décor ideas to spruce up your table every day. Prepare yourself for some dining table makeover inspiration!
1. Let the Table Shine
Uncover your dining table and let its beautiful wood, marble, or other finishes shine through. Don’t save these stunning features for special occasions only—enjoy them all the time! Enhance the table’s natural charm with a centerpiece of fresh flowers or vibrant green foliage, like magnolia branches. Add a pop of color to your dining experience.
2. Blue and White China Collection
Display your cherished blue and white china collection in the center of your dining table. Consider placing one vase filled with freshly cut flowers among the collection. To add visual interest, hang a pretty chandelier 30″ to 36″ above the table. If you have just one planter, it can also serve as a striking centerpiece. Let your collection shine as the focal point of your dining room.
3. Footed Fruit Bowl and Hurricane Candle Holders
Combine an elevated fruit bowl and hurricane candle holders for a captivating centerpiece. The Hudson Grace footed fruit bowl adds prominence and elegance to your table. Switch out the fruits seasonally or replace them with air plants for a fresh and versatile look. Create a warm and inviting ambiance with soft candlelight.
4. Soup Tureen Delights
A soup tureen can be a unique and charming centerpiece for your dining table. Fill it with fragrant hyacinth pots and mint herbs for a touch of spring. The delightful combination of colors and scents will invigorate your dining experience. Consider placing hurricanes around the tureen for added elegance.
5. Clip Fresh Branches from Your Garden
If you’re fortunate enough to have a garden, bring the beauty indoors by clipping fresh branches. Create a farmhouse-inspired tablescape, just like Lisa’s, with greenery from your own backyard. Nothing beats the fresh and natural appeal of garden vegetation on your dining table.
6. Everyday Elegance with Plants
Why not introduce something green and fresh to your dining table decor? This tabletop arrangement from our previous San Francisco apartment showcases the timeless elegance of candlesticks from Serena & Lily. Add a touch of nature and tranquility to your dining experience.
7. Wicker Bowl for Collections and Seasonal Items
Use a wicker bowl to showcase your collections or display seasonal items. Melba, for example, collects hand-blown glass balls, which can be switched out for pinecones during the holiday season or shells for a summery vibe. Let your personal style shine through with a versatile and captivating centerpiece.
8. Embrace Table Runners
Table runners are a fantastic way to add texture and personality to your dining table. Use them to lighten and tone down a formal table setting or create a more casual atmosphere. However, don’t be afraid to let your table shine elegantly without one. Find the perfect balance that suits your style.
And those are eight tips to freshen up your dining table every day! Enjoy the process of transforming your dining area into a welcoming and delightful space.
