1. A vibrant tablescape, this reception set-up is simple but bold.
The place settings feature crisp pastels, while the glassware and centerpieces consist of deep jewel tones. The fun fruit tray in particular, with a mashup of textures and colors, makes this tablescape look much busier than it really is. Plus, who doesn’t like a centerpiece you can eat?

2. With a warm neutral colored theme, this table consists of beige and rust tones.
What sets this tablescape apart are the different textures. From the glossy vase, to the dried florals, the soft linens, and of course the beautiful rattan placemats. A touch of gold from the flatware takes these place settings from beautiful but simple to luxe.

4. An edgy amber and gold tablescape, this set up is ideal for a late fall wedding.
The amber colored glassware and votives perfectly complement the small touches of beige. A mix of gold and rose gold accents will help you maintain a modern look, despite the vintage color scheme.

5. This cool toned blue-green table is chic and modern.
It would work well for late spring and throughout summer, especially if you plan to feature bright oranges or another citrus fruit. If you wanted to transfer this look to the fall, consider opting for pinecones or fruit of a deeper shade.

It features natural wood and other earth tones, from brown to grey. A touch of deep reds and purples make this tablescape better for the fall, although you could switch them with summer fruits.

8. This vibrant tablescape features two of the most popular colors of 2020.
Terracotta or rust and a beautiful cornflower blue. It features a surprisingly stunning mix of both cold and warm tones, in addition to fun textures. More specifically the dried flower arrangement and the rattan charger.
9. A white and green based tablescape is what people often associate with minimalistic.
This crisp set up features next to no centerpieces, with the exception of a few single stem plants. Meanwhile glassware is plain glass, and servingware is a bright gray and gold. Chic and modern, this tablescape would look stunning year-round.

This combination is bright and warm, and practically oozes luxury. With a minimalistic centerpiece of greenery and white pillar candles, it remains relatively simple. The use of black chargers makes every place setting POP off the table.
11. Ideal for a neutral-themed wedding, this beige based tablecape is a dream.
It features a variety of warm earth tones and textures. Including dried florals, earthen servingware, and white washed wood accents.

12. Bright and colorful, this tablescape is perfect for an outdoor spring wedding.
While the servinware is plain, consisting of glass and white china, the floral centerpieces make a statement. The arrangements feature huge blooms of orange, peach, pink and yellow. Cream linens and gold flatware tie it all together.

13. Another white and green tablescape, this set up is slightly different than the last.
Silver versus gold flatware is used for a cooler toned tablescape. In addition, the servingware, linens, and even the white blooms, are all the exact same white. Making for a unique monochromatic display.

14. Yellow and cornflower blue are oh so trendy.
This bold tablescape showcases these two colors in full force, via warm lighting, decor, glassware, linens and fresh floral arrangements. Sticking with the deeper tones, warm wood and copper accents were thrown into the mix. This look would be beautiful for late spring through the summer.

15. A mix of modern charm and rustic accents, this bright tablescape is warm and inviting.
It showcases a variety of warm tones, from cream to gold and dusty blue. Our favorite element of this minimalistic tablescape is the use of a table runner for a centerpiece. Piled high and decorated with votive candles, it is simple but romantic.
