There is nothing more inviting than a beautifully decorated table top. Art, nature, and beautiful textiles can all provide the inspiration for tablescapes that truly elevate your dining experience. Would you like to be challenged to evoke a mood or theme in the clever way you arrange a table setting? Hone your cluttering and photography skills? If so, this is the challenge for you!
There is an artistry to creating a tablescape. For this challenge you will base your design on an inspiration picture. You can ask for one from the staff or provide it yourself. You will not use a picture of a table, rather an inspiration picture of something that is more mood-setting and, hopefully, creatively inspiring.
You will then design a space for your tablescape and the tablescape itself. This space can be interior or exterior. Although you will be designing a room or outdoor space for your table to be in, the main focus in your pictures should be on the table and its setting. Please make sure to post your inspiration picture.
How to use the inspiration picture
When you get an inspiration picture, you can use it in a number of ways. You can take inspiration from the colour, shapes, texture, theme, mood or that memory it evokes. How you use it is really up to you.
