Are you planning a wedding in 2020? It's a brand new decade, and that means out with the old and in with new wedding decor trends. This year, the craze we're most excited about is statement tablescapes. There's nothing more breathtaking than a stunning reception space, besides the bride (and groom), of course. When it comes to styling your tables, we have a few ideas to help you achieve the wow-factor you're looking for.
5 wedding decor ideas to make your tables pop
1. Stick to one style
Picking a single theme to style your wedding helps tie all your design elements together, making sure every little touch works in cohesion. Vintage, rustic, bohemian, glam - with so many different wedding decor styles out there, it can be hard to choose which direction to go in for your special day. But choose you must. As soon as you've picked a distinct style, your spectacular tablescapes will begin to take shape.
2. Mix it up
Matchy-matchy wedding decor is so last decade. While you should stick to one style, you shouldn't limit your decor pieces or colour palette. Subtlety is key when it comes to executing statement tablescapes. And by subtle, we don't mean your decor should be boring or low-key. You can have wow decor without putting together in-your-face centrepieces. It's all about finding pieces and colours that complement each other. Mix a collection of statement centrepieces to keep your tables fresh and intriguing. The same applies to your colour palette. Don't make everything the same colour. Instead, balance a selection of harmonious hues across your flatware, stationery and decor.

3. Set the mood with candles
Besides looking gorgeous, your decor also helps set the mood at your reception. One of the easiest and most visually appealing ways to amp up the ambience in the room is with candles, candles and more candles. After all, no one can resist the appeal of a warm, flickering flame casting an orange glow across the table. If you want your wedding to ooze with romance, this is the way to go. When planning your candle placement, it's best to work with different levels. Have some candles on the table and some elevated for the best effect. You can order a selection of real and electric candles from our online store.
4. Make use of shapes and textures
To successfully create a statement tablescape for your wedding, you need to incorporate different shapes and textures. As we mentioned before, there's nothing more boring than a monotonous display. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate texture and form in your tabletop layout. Stark geometrics, cylindrical vases, circular underplates - there are many ways to introduce appealing shapes. When it comes to textures, these can range anywhere from shiny metal to rustic wood to soft table linen. As long as your wedding decor has some variety, you can't go wrong.
5. Add florals
Last, but not least, no wedding is complete without a touch of floral. There's no denying that flowers bring the whole look together. Whether you opt for trendy greenery or traditional roses, some form of foliage should make it onto your tables. Nothing says your flowers have to be fresh either. Silk flowers last longer and look equally attractive as living florals. You won't have to worry about finding seasonal flowers or fear your arrangements wilting in the heat. We have a gorgeous collection of silk flowers perfect for your 2020 wedding (explore the store).
