Tips For Styling + Designing The Perfect Table

Spring is in the air, and contrary to popular belief spring is not all fun colours + flowers here in Muskoka. We still have snow, lots and lots of snow. But in the spirit of the spring season we wanted to chat a little bit about table top styling using some bright + bold designs from our trip to Mexico. 

This first look incorporated the vibrant tropical colours that were overflowing in the gardens that were quite literally all around us. The stunning bougainvillea in all kinds of punchy colours brought a fun liveliness to the table. To really help these colours pop we introduced a lighter more natural colour palette in the table runner, candles, and place settings. To keep the look consistent throughout we brought in a coral napkin, which visually draws your attention while complimenting the floral design. 

If we can give any advice at all when it comes to table styling + design, it would be to make sure your table is balanced. If you bring in a bright pink flower that stands tall in the middle of the table then try to include a similar colour somewhere lower, like in the napkin or the stationery. 


This next look is still colourful, but in a more moodier way with the darker jewel tones. And can we say how much we love this exotic ikat runner from the Linen Closet, it truly was our inspiration for this table design and we focused on using the jewel tones as the colour palette for all the florals. We styled the greens to flow throughout the entire table to really enhance the overall look, and the pops of gold give it that edgy vibe that is totally on trend right now. 

Another important element to the perfect table design is layering. You know how they say content is king, well in the design world layering is boss, and can really take your design up that extra notch to truly stand out. Here we have layered this table with a gold charger, a plum dinner plate and added the green leaf as an accent to complete the look.

Now if only this sweet sweet Mexico weather would arrive here in Muskoka. We hope you enjoyed this post!
