Want to know how to create a gorgeous tablescape for your next dinner party?

With event sizes still limited to smaller numbers, what better time to host your own dinner party! Whether you’re hosting an intimate wedding reception, or an outdoor picnic don’t underestimate the power of a great design.

A simple scattering of candles mixed with a linen napkin can bring a design to life. The Melbourne Planner shows us how it’s done with this beautiful tablescape.

Floral arrangements will never go out of style for events. However, the perfect styles and colour palettes change with our tablescape every season.

With Spring around the corner these soft pastels and burnt oranges create a feast for the eyes.



Start with your favourite mix of organic shaped plates and crystal wine glasses.

Find a style or theme that reflects the mood and atmosphere you want to create. From floral centrepieces to linens, a beautifully styled table can really set the scene for any celebration. Have fun with it!

Take your table setting to the next level by experimenting with layers.

Layers give your table settings depth and detail, which creates interesting and engaging visuals. Layering your textures, materials and décor elements like plates and linen napkins work beautifully to add visual interest. However, don’t forget to keep your design practical for your guest.




Make your tablescape seriously impressive by incorporating different heights. Adding details like floral centrepieces, candles and table numbers allow you to play around with varying heights.

Event Stylist are able to create spaces that feel lush, full and interesting by using these elements.

If your design looks a little bit flat or bare it’s time to level up and create that instagrammable dinner party moment for your friends and family.
