How to Style a Dining Table

Ready to elevate your hosting game and turn your dining table into the ultimate focal point? Well, we're here to spill all the secrets on how to effortlessly style your dining table, making hosting a breeze. From casual brunches to elegant dinner parties, we've got you covered with tips and tricks that are both easy and affordable. So, grab a seat (preferably at your beautifully styled table), and let's sprinkle some charm and sophistication into your dining space!

How to Style Your Dining Table for Everyday Living

Dressing a dining room table isn't just reserved for seasonal events; it's about adding that extra touch to elevate your daily dinner routine. So, why not make every meal feel a bit more special? Let’s transform your dining game and make everyday meals more memorable.

1) Consider the Shape of Your Dining Table

When it comes to styling your dining table, don't overlook the importance of its shape! Rectangular tables offer ample space and flexibility for adding decorative touches, making them ideal for elaborate centrepieces. On the other hand, circle dining tables require a bit more strategic planning; a "less is more" approach is often recommended to avoid overcrowding the tabletop.

2) Build Your Tableware Around a Centrepiece

A centrepiece isn't just for special occasions; it's a must-have for any dining table, even when it's not in use all the time. Picture this: a beautiful vase gracing the centre, filled with seasonal blooms, effortlessly injecting a burst of colour into your space effortlessly. Alternatively, if your dining table resides in the heart of your kitchen, opt for a practical yet vibrant centrepiece like a fruit bowl. Take your pick from our homewares range, available online and in-store, like the Pepco Wooden Vase with its natural tones that complement any colourway seamlessly. Make your table the talk of the town with a standout centrepiece today!

3) Start with Placemats or a Table Runner

Whether you choose to opt for placemats, a table runner or both, they serve as the foundation for your table decor, setting the tone for the whole dining experience. Opting for round placemats, like the two pack of Pepco Table Placemats available in Green and Blue, is a brilliant styling tip, especially for circular dining tables, adding visual interest and complementing the table's shape. Meanwhile, a table runner is a perfect choice for rectangular dining tables, as it elongates the surface and gives the illusion of a longer table. So, when you're brainstorming decorating ideas for dining room tables, don't forget to start with the basics.

4) Weave in Home Décor Pieces

Wondering how to style your dining room table to perfection? Well, if you've got some space to spare for decorative pieces, let's weave some magic into your dining setup! Adding decorative elements not only enhances the visual appeal but also creates a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. Think about it – seasonal tablescapes are all the rage, and what better place to showcase your creativity than your dining table? For some fabulous inspiration, head over to our blog for helpful seasonal guides on tableware ideas.

Now, let's talk about some must-have décor pieces. Picture this: a stunning Pepco Figurine Body Natural Sesame Ornament stealing the spotlight, complemented by a chic Pepco Ceramic Decorative Leaf Tray for added elegance. And hey, don't forget to sprinkle some charm with a Pepco Mini Black Ceramic Flowerpot. These gems will elevate your dining experience from mundane to magnificent in no time! So, what are you waiting for? Dive into the art of styling your dining room table and let your creativity flourish!

Top Tip: Use Complementing Colours

To really bring your table to life let’s consider the using complimenting colours! The key to creating a visually appealing dining table is harmonising colours that work well together. For example, pairing navy blue with gold accents adds a touch of sophistication when going for a modern farmhouse dining table, while combining soft pastels like blush pink and mint green creates a delicate and charming ambiance perfect with our Easter decor. By using complimenting colours, you can effortlessly enhance the aesthetic appeal of your dining table and stay on-trend with current decor styles. Don't be afraid to mix and match hues to achieve the perfect look for your dining space!

5) Add Different Heights with Candles

Take your dining experience to new heights by adding candles. Whether you're hosting a gathering or simply enjoying a romantic homemade dinner, experimenting with a range of candles can enhance the ambience of your space. Playing around with pillar candle heights not only adds visual interest but also creates a focal centrepiece that draws attention to your table. Why not opt for a Pepco Aroma Burner filled with Pepco Scented Oil in Elderflower and Cotton, or Pepco Sentenced Wax Melts in Vanilla or Peach to captivate your guests and elevate the dining experience to a whole new level.

The Perfect Way to Set Your Dining Table

Setting your dining table is more than just placing utensils and plates; it's about creating an inviting experience for memorable gatherings. Every detail counts, so whether you're hosting a special occasion or enjoying a cosy meal at home, don't forget to visit our home range, available online or in a store near you, and pay attention to the little things that can make a big difference.
