set the mood

Sometimes setting the table calls for some special additions. Creating a theme doesn’t have to be a formal affair! We scoured our favorite sites to set this rustic-chic tabletop.

Better Homes and Gardens recommends “harmonizing objects of different shapes and sizes with an asymmetrical arrangement. Balance a tall, large object with several smaller ones.” On our tablescape, the terrarium, wine bottle and stacked pottery achieve this in a simple and understated way.

We were so inspired by country-chic styles on Pinterest that we created our own oh-so-simple sunflower centerpiece. Here we recreated the look with our own Flourish Terranium, but a Ball jar would work just as well.

Round tables can feature a table runner too! There are just a few basic rules that we stuck to like featuring “one runner across the center” and ensuring that “one-third the width and hang 6 inches over the side.

Our setup took only a few minutes to pull together, what theme would you choose?
