Quick and Easy Tablescape Ideas

Happy Thursday, friends!!! Today I’m sharing a few tips and tricks that I have found super helpful when creating a tablescape.

Before I started using the trick that I’m about to share with y’all, I rarely ever put tablescapes/centerpieces on my table. It was always such a hassle to take all of the elaborate decor down when it was time to have dinner, and if I did keep it on the table, it would have been completely destroyed by the end of the meal….four boys!

What’s this magic trick, you’re wondering? Using a riser to put your centerpiece on! Easy, right!! I built this simple wood riser, last year. Click HERE for a tutorial on how to build your own! Using a riser seems so simple, but it really does help having the centerpiece slightly elevated. It keep the decor contained to its designated space on the table, without encroaching on everyone’s eating space.

Using a riser elevates any tablescape! It helps add depth and dimension.

I almost always start with this riser, and add dishes, candles, and fresh flowers.

Because I almost always use the same elements on my table, my tablescapes all end up looking the same, right? Nope! They all turn out so different!

Here is a tablescape from earlier this week. Same elements….riser, dishes, candles, flowers

Such a different vibe, right?!!

I seriously love using this riser for my tablescapes! It makes putting a centerpiece/tablescape together so quick and easy!!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. I always love your tablescapes and centerpieces so much! They’re stunning. I completely agree with the idea of the riser or some sort of container that the centerpiece is in so it’s easily removable if needed and I like the height the riser gives.

  5. What a great idea Emily! Plus if you decide you really have to take it off the table, you can just pick up the whole thing and move it! (When my kids were little they tried to get away with throwing things across the table as often as possible, which made centerpieces difficult!) 🙂 Thanks for the wonderful tip!
