Creating a tablescape involves the art of layering. How many layers can you put on your table to create the perfect tablescape? Start with a tablecloth, then add place mats or chargers and a contrasting or matching table runner. Next, add the flatware, plates, and glasses. Ready for more? It's time for the centerpiece(s). Wait, did you remember to add candles?
