I would like to introduce you to Manvi. She is the savvy author and stylist of a blog called Mochatini and she sets a beautiful table! The above images are just a few of her gorgeous tables. A few of the images are detail shots of the full table shown in the previous photo. I think it is worth noting she uses the same set of dishes in all of the photos plus or minus a bowl or cup, yet the tables differ in style and feeling. Tips for creating a variety of tablescapes: • Buy table linens you love and/or make your own, then mix and match. Hint: Find great deals at sample sales and thrift shops. • Find foliage and accessories around your home to add as centerpieces and decor such as mini potted plants, leaves, holiday ornaments, baskets, candles, a nice cutting board to use as a riser, a cake stand, vases, etc. Think out of the box. I saw a bouquet of pencils once that was extraordinary. • Incorporate "interesting" such as unique salt and pepper shakers, different colored glassware, mismatched china. • Make your own place cards or place a pretty item on each plate. Does not have to be an actual piece of paper or card.
