I want to share with you 7 dining table styling ideas for everyday use. Decorating your table shouldn’t be a chore. It should appear effortless.
I think people are afraid of decorating their dining table. They feel what they put on it, that it must be amazing.
They have an unrealistic idea of how a “pretty” dining table should be styled, and they feel they aren’t talented enough to obtain that look.
But a dining table doesn’t need those high expectations. That just creates frustration and results in nothing being done.
I’m here to tell you that it’s easy to decorate your dining table for everyday use.
(I’m not talking about styling it for a dinner party, but for everyday use.)
Don’t make it hard on yourself!
Give yourself the gift of being normal, and an everyday table.
Be realistic with yourself. Know that an everyday styled dining table is not lavish, nor fancy, and doesn’t require hours of time to decorate.
Style your dining room table for everyday living and be proud of it.
It’s part of your home decor. It can stay out for days, weeks, or even months.
Here are 7 Dining Table Styling Ideas for Everday Living
1 ~ High/low combination works great for everyday dining table decor
Creating a high/low combination centerpiece is easy to use for your everyday table decor. All you need is a tall flower vase with a low fruit bowl next to it.
The two different heights create visual interest on the table.
Pretty and useful! You can’t go wrong.
2 ~ Use a jar instead of a vase to decorate your dining room table
Are you familiar with Ginger jars? If not, take a look at my jar/vase below. It’s a ginger jar. Not only is it attractive, it’s super useful for everyday table styling.
It makes for a fabulous everyday look on your dining table. Take off the lid and fill it with flowers or branches and use it as a vase.
And when you don’t have flowers, put the lid on, and it still looks great on your table.
3 ~ Collection or grouping of 3 for everyday decor on your dining table
Do you collect anything? Why not use it (or part of it) to style your dining table? Not only will you be able to show off your collection, but it will also make your table more attractive.
If collections aren’t your thing, group three like items (same color, same shape, or same type of item) to add a little something to your table. Bud vases, candle holders, or bowls are always great options.
4 ~ A tray w/napkins, and salt and pepper is the ultimate useful everyday table decor
A fabulous dining table styling idea for everyday use is a tray with useful items on/in it.
Consider placing napkins and salt and pepper shakers on our tray. That way they’re readily available for your family to use.
Plus it looks great on your table!
5 ~ Air plants or succulents are a unique way to style your table for everyday living
Air plants or succulents make a great dining table styling idea for everyday use. They need little water or attention and come in a wide variety of options.
Put a few together, or line them down the middle, or make a statement with just one. No matter what, they will look great on your dining table.
6 ~ Tray & gather is an ideal way to decorate a dining table decor for an everyday look
Another idea for an attractive/useful everyday table decorating idea is to fill a tray with items from around your house.
Gather some of your favorite pieces and display them in a tray, on your table.
Consider using a vase, candle holders, books, tchotchkes, or even a small bowl for your keys. They can be anything you want.
7 ~ Put out a casual table set to style your everyday dining table
I’m not talking about “setting” your table. I’m saying to “set out” items on your dining table.
Put out a small pile of plates, napkins, and utensils. in the middle of the table. Then add a vase and a pitcher of water.
Not only is it look cute, it’s also useful!
When someone wants a snack, everything they need is already on the table. Boo-ya!
Now that you know 7 dining table styling ideas for everyday use, don’t feel that your dining room table must be amazing. Decorate it for everyday use.
Enjoy styling your dining table for everyday living!
