Move over Martha
BY PAT BURNS

T

ablescaping is the act of creatively and intentionally arranging a tabletop so that it conveys a
specific theme, mood, or experience. It is meant
to help us pause for a moment. Then we're able to
appreciate the setting which helps elevate a dining
experience.
A few generations ago, dinner tables were much
more formal with an intimidating protocol. Silverware
place settings had to be just right. Sets of china were
sold to entertain eight or more and all had to match.
Even the serving pieces. That's all changed now.

"

With barely any effort at all you can
create a memorable tablescape that
is entertaining and conversationworthy for all ages.

"

For as long as I can remember, tablescaping has
been a southern-lady thing. Then Martha Stewart's television shows, books, and magazines brought tablescaping into homes everywhere. The next big boon in
tablescaping was Pinterest. You don't have to go further than your phone to discover new ideas for setting

a memorable table that elevates dining with family or
friends.
Just as an artist has a variety of mediums to choose
from so does tablescaping. There are several questions to answer to determine your approach to tablescaping. Will you be setting an elaborate tablescape
because it's a special occasion? A birthday, graduation,
or a promotion? Is it a holiday or a favorite season?
Or, maybe there is no special reason at all. That would
just fine, too.
