Even when you aren’t entertaining, it’s nice to keep your dining table fresh with simple, everyday décor. Instead of keeping your table blank or with a protector or table cloth on…consider these…
Tips For Everyday Decor On Your Dining Table
1. Uncover the Table
Let the pretty wood or marble or other finish shine through so that you can enjoy it all the time and not just on special occasions. Life is short!
2. Blue and White China Collection
Andrew J. Howard places the collection in the center with one vase filled with flowers.
Or even just one planter as below. This is my friend, Debbie’s dining room. The blue and white planter is pretty on its own as the inside is painted too, but often Debbie places potted flowers here.
3. Footed Fruit Bowl and Hurricane Candle Holders
An elevated fruit bowl and hurricane candles are one of my favorite combos. Here you can see I used this Hudson Grace footed fruit bowl for two clients. I like a raised bowl as it gives it more prominence. Melina switches out hers seasonally…
And Susan has air plants in her fruit bowl…
I bought my sister this footed fruit bowl and ceramic artichokes as gifts (from Homegoods) years ago.
4. Soup Tureen
A soup tureen with hurricanes is nice too like we did for Kim (the before and after of this dining room is here).
In my dining room, I switch up using the soup tureen that is on the radiator by the window with fresh flowers on the table.
5. Clip Branches From Your Garden
Lucky you if you have branches that you can easily clip and enjoy in your dining room, as Lisa has here.
6. Plants As An Everyday Centerpiece
How about something green and fresh on your dining table?
7. Wicker Bowl For A Collection or For Seasonal Items
Melba collects hand blown glass balls. She could change this to pinecones or shells for other times of the year. (Before and after here).
8. Table Runners
As you can see in the previous photos, I like to use table runners for texture or to lighten and tone down a formal table. But I also like tables without them, too!
