Design a Vintage Coral Tablescape
In 5 Easy Steps
We’re thrilled to have recently announced the arrival of a brand new spring 2014 color collection inspired by Pantone®! So far, we’ve added reseda, charcoal, cantaloupe, butter, and hemlock tablecloths with matching table runners, overlays, and napkins soon to come. I love the look of our new coral color–it’s the tasteful combination of orange and pink, and it makes the perfect foundation for a vintage tablescape. To balance out the vibrancy of coral, I used white china and decor. You wouldn’t know it from looking at the final tablescape presentation at the bottom of this page, but the vase centerpiece is actually made of glass! It’s super easy to make faux-ceramic/milk glass. I followed a simple tutorial by The Happier Homemaker, and the only thing you need (besides from the vase) is a can of spray paint. It’s that easy! Are you ready to begin?
1) Start with a blank canvas–aka your coral tablecloth. Make sure to iron before use because those wrinles really show!
2) What makes this tablescape work is it’s simplicity. Keep the decor very simple and let the brightness and richness of the coral tablecloth act as the WOW factor. I used our rainbow striped gray placemats to broaden the color palette.
3) Next, I added napkins and silverware. I used a classic napkin roll fold and adorned the silver napkins with water pearl bracelets for some flair.
4) To finish up the place settings, I used white china coffee cups, saucers, and a red wine glasses.
Here’s a detail shot of the place settings:
5) All this table needs now is some decor. As mentioned earlier, I made faux-milk glass vase with some spray paint and a cheap glass vase from Goodwill. To compliment the vase, I used two white china bowls and filled them with some stones and tealight candles.
And voila! Perfect for weddings and other springtime events, here’s full vintage coral tablescape from us to you <3
