Create Custom Tablescapes

A tablescape is a beautiful way to create a welcoming atmosphere for guests and to add a touch of style to your home. Finding inspiration for your tablescape can be as simple as taking a look at your surroundings or drawing on your personal interests. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Nature: Take inspiration from the natural beauty around you. Use natural elements like flowers, branches, and leaves to create a simple and elegant centerpiece.

  2. Color: Choose a color scheme that reflects your personality or complements your décor. Think about the mood you want to set for your event, and use color to help achieve that.

  3. Theme: If you’re hosting a themed event, let that theme guide your tablescape design. For example, a beach-themed event might feature seashells and blue and green accents.

  4. Occasion: Consider the occasion you’re celebrating and incorporate elements that reflect its significance. For example, a Thanksgiving tablescape might include fall leaves and rustic elements.

  5. Personal interests: Use your personal interests as a starting point for your tablescape. If you love books, use stacks of books as a centerpiece. If you’re a collector, display your collection on the table.

Finding Inspiration for Your Tablescape

A tablescape is a beautiful way to create a welcoming atmosphere for guests and to add a touch of style to your home. 

Social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram are great places to find inspiration for your tablescape. You can browse through a wide range of photos and get ideas for color schemes, themes, and table settings.

Choosing a color scheme and theme for your tablescape is an important first step. This will help guide your design choices and create a cohesive look.

Ink in Style is a resource for downloadable images that can be printed onto transfer sheets and applied to fabric or tablescape. Browse their image library and choose images that fit your theme.

Before adding any decor or images, start with a base layer of fabric or tablescape. This could be a tablecloth or runner, placemats or chargers, and coordinating napkins and napkin rings.

Choose a focal point for your tablescape, such as a centerpiece or a unique decor item, and build the rest of your design around it.

To create a visually interesting tablescape, layer images and transfers to create depth and texture.

Iron-on stickers can be used to add small details and accents to your tablescape, such as initials or decorative elements.

If you're looking for downloadable images to use on your tablescape, consider purchasing them from Ink In Style.

To transfer the images onto fabric or tablescape, you'll need to print them onto transfer sheets using an inkjet printer.

 Once you've printed your images onto transfer sheets, cut them out and arrange them on your tablescape to create your desired design.

To transfer the images onto fabric or tablescape, use an iron or apply pressure to ensure that the images adhere properly.

Job Done

Care and Storage

Avoid abrasive cleaners or scrubbing the area where the sticker or transfer is applied and store your accessory in a protective sleeve or bag when not in use to prevent damage.

Avoid Washing

Avoid washing your accessory for at least 24 hours after applying the sticker or transfer to allow it to fully adhere to the material.
