Pinky Tobiano‘s pink tea time tablescape brings anyone back to the time of Bridgerton. Using her Royal Albert Tea set coupled with some pink flowers and crystal goblets, she creates the romantic and elegant atmosphere of Victorian England. Besides the goblets and teacups, she also uses a silver pastry stand where people can take a scone or two to enjoy with their Darjeeling Tea or Earl Grey.

Whimsical Blue by Grace Barbers-Baja

Founder of Grace Home Manila and The Spoiled Mummy Grace Barbers-Baja went with a more simple and whimsical approach for her tablescape. Grace used blue as her main color with wood as her texture. If you look at the video, there are even some name cards on top of the plate to let the guests know where they’re supposed to sit.

Black and Gold by Cyndi Fernandez-Beltran

Co-founder and Director of Moss Cyndi Fernandez-Beltran‘s love for the Black and Gold motif manifests in the form of Elegant Luxe. Her floral centerpiece is the simple Calla Lillies and Million Stars (Gypsophilia) which she put in gold-brass holders. Instead of using floral plates, she uses simple, geometric-designed plates. That way, the Calla Lillies and Million Stars can soften the edges of the Elegant Luxe theme.

Grand floral arrangements are usually the center of every tablescape. But M Maison MNL‘s founder and professional platita, Millet Liberato-Simeon, decided to go with simple eucalyptus to enhance the beauty of her Loumarin Plate Set. Adorned with gold diningware and chargers, her white and blue plate gets to be the star of the show with some eucalyptus and small flowers to make a cozy yet elegant set-up.

Make use of inherited dining sets for your next tablescape idea!

Dining sets usually just accumulate dust at home. To motivate ourselves to clean them, sometimes we’d like to make a nice tablescape. There doesn’t need to be a reason; it’s just out of the pursuit of what is beautiful. Besides, it can also serve as practice for when guests come over or for us to check if the set is complete. Even though some of these tablescape ideas can be grand, remember that it doesn’t always have to be. Sometimes, luxury and beauty can be found in simplicity.
