10 Wedding Tablescape Inspirations: From Classic Glam to Boho-Chic

Setting the scene for your big day is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process. And since the tables will be a big focus of the reception, finding a tablescape that fits the theme and aesthetic you are going for is key. 


Table tops are fun way to play around with design elements: florals, linens, centerpieces, glassware and even trinkets all play a role in designing the reception table of your dreams. Whether you're going for a rustic country vibe, a sleek and modern design or a traditional and classic aesthetic, there are so many different ways to design your wedding reception tables.

Take a look at some of our favorite tablescapes below. If you're pinching pennies or have a limitless budget, there are definitely some design ideas that can work for you! 

 

1. Modern Glam

This modern tablescape, featured on Project Wedding, includes trendy elements that we love, such as chevron and sequins. The eclectic chairs and soft florals keep this look fresh and beautiful. 

 

2. Feminie Florals Meets Masculine Setting

This gorgeous wedding featured on Mel Barlow & Co was held at Bush Creek Ranch in Wyoming. How much more rustic can you get? This tablescape combines the masculine elements of the barn wood and leather chairs, with the soft and girlie gold utensils, table runner and gorgeous flowers. 

 

3. Nautical-Inspired Stripes

 

It doesn't get much more nautical than navy and white stripes on a brown tablecloth, like this tablescape featured on Garden on the Square. The string around the vases and white candles finish off this summery look. 

 

4. Gorgeous Garden Table

 

The rich purple color palette looks stunning with the fresh garden backyard backdrop. This setup from Green Wedding Shoes is the ultimate whimsical tablescape that pays homage to The Secret Garden.  

 

5. Pretty Petals & Props

 

This tablescape featured on Style Me Pretty is incredibly girlie, but playful at the same time. The pink cake stand makes for a creative centerpiece, and adds layers and texture to the table. I love how the floral arrangements match the dinner China.  

 

6. Bohemian Vibe with a Rich Color Scheme

 

For the ultimate backyard wedding, add some rich colors to an already-rustic picnic table. With this pink table runner, bold flower arrangements and antlers, this tablescape featured on Burnetts Boards is the ultimate in boho chic. 

 

7. Earthy & Eclectic

This stunning tablescape is like Anthropologie come to life. The solid wood elements mix nicely with the colored glass and gorgeous flower arrangements. This fits in perfectly with the venue, especially with the exposed brick and wooden ceilings. 

 

8. Vintage Meets Rustic

Some vintage and upcycled items can make for a stunning centerpiece. I love the solid wood and antique books balanced out by the bright and fresh flowers. The canister filled with buttons and smaller glass votives make for an all-around lovely tablesape

 

9. Soft & Romantic

I'm obsessing over this gorgeous tablescape, especially because I love me some gold. The gold accents match the flower arrangements perfectly, and don't overwhelm the table. 

 

10. Fresh & Minimalistic

 

For a classic and minimalistic approach, stick to an all-white theme at your table. With just some soft flower arrangements, like this Hawaiian wedding table featured on Burnetts Boards, you have a stunning tablescape that's not too overwhelming.
