A table runner is to a tablescape as a rug is to a room. It pulls it all together. Layer 2-3 elements throughout your tablescape overlapping your runner. It creates a sense of fullness without being too overpowering. Use a light linen runner with greenery and pumpkins overlapping throughout the table design to create a cohesive multi-dimensional look.

CONTRAST

Create an eye-catching tablescape by mixing textures to add depth and dimension to your table design. Use different textiles such as linen for the table and/or napkins. The linen will contrast off your table surface. A good mixture is key to contrast and balance. Using fall colored napkins creates contrast from the wood surface and the light toned table runner.

PRE-SET YOUR TABLE

When guests see your set table it will set an inviting tone. Use your dishes, flatware and glasses to fill the space and show off your personal style. Use food for color and let it be the star of the design. Pre-set the table with appetizers and small bites so the guests have something to nibble on while waiting for dinner. Thomas’ ® Apple & Brie Mini Appetizers and Thomas’ ® Blackberry Jam Cheese Board are delicious options for appetizers.

LET THERE BE HEIGHT

To add dimension, use elements with varying heights to elevate the table design. Greenery, pumpkins and the food work nicely to create dimension. You can also add candles to get more height and ambience.

Tablescape Keepsake

Give your guests a memento and something personal. It can also serve as a place card. Pumpkins are a festive way to achieve this while giving them something special to keep.
