Everyone has that one part of the house that is their favorite or the room they think is the best decorated. Growing up here in the South, the dining room and kitchen have always been the rooms that seem to be decorated the prettiest.

So, now that you have some insight to the task at hand, let’s talk about a few of the items listed. Regardless of which design you're choosing, you need a base and a centerpiece. These are the staples to your tablescape.


  • A Base: It can be a tablecloth, runner or placemats. You can even do two or more different types of bases on your table, layers are in this Spring and Summer! Burlap and lace always mix well together in this instance for a more classic chic look.


  • A Centerpiece: They are my favorite because you can be so creative! Flowers are a safe bet to brighten up your area. Put some daisies or daffodils in a glass water pitcher that is lined with lemons for a pretty seasonal feel. Plus, lemons make your flowers live a little longer.


  • Placemats: Try to choose placemats you can use year round and that go well with different centerpieces and bases. Browns, navy, greys, creams and golds are all placemat colors that you can mix with other pieces for a great tablescape!



No matter which tablescape design you choose for your kitchen table decor, it's sure to brighten up the room and add your own touch of character to your home. If you're dreaming about a new kitchen to decorate, check out the countless options we have here at Clayton!
