Creativity is a skill you can practice every day.
Creativity opens the mind and allows us to see the world around us in a new light and through new eyes.
Being creative helps us maintain sharp minds and makes us happier. It can also be used as a tool to combat anxiety and mental fatigue.
But not everyone gets to be creative on a regular basis, be it because of our jobs, our busy schedules, or our (perceived) limited creative talents.
Tablescaping is a beautiful way to access and unleash your creative self.
Tablescaping is the art of setting the table – of arranging and decorating the table to be more aesthetically pleasing.
The beauty of this unique hobby is that you can make any table special. All you need is a little creativity and the will to create unforgettable memories for those present.
You don’t have to be an amazing artist or designer to bring life to your table. You can start with simple designs and keep adding more details as you progress.
So, if you’ve been looking for ways to exercise your creative muscle here are 5 ways setting the table can help you be more creative.
Don’t wait for a special occasion to treat yourself and those you love. You have the power to make every day special and look at the world through fresh eyes.
Setting the table can serve as a reminder that your life is beautiful. For many, the process of setting a table is a meditative experience and all it takes is setting aside a few extra minutes to put the finishing touches to your daily meal.
Look around your home and garden to discover compelling objects that can be used as table accessories, elements of nature, and anything that can add visual interest to your table.
You don’t need to go out and buy supplies specifically meant for a tablescaping hobby. You can use what’s available in your home!
You also don’t need expensive pieces to create beautiful accents on the table. You can find inspiration in everyday houseware and turn them into something truly exceptional.
Setting the table is a process that involves several steps.
Through the entire process, you’ll learn how to organize your thoughts and materials according to a set vision.
If you define your vision clearly then it’s easy to work towards that big picture as you arrange each detail in a cohesive manner.
Whether you’re going for a simple or a grand, elaborate tablescaping design, you will have to follow your vision to create something unique.
There will be times when you get stuck and are unsure of how to move forward.
That’s the moment where you’ll learn the power of patience and perseverance. You’ll learn that all you need is focus, calculated actions, and the right mindset to make your design come alive.
Whether you’re setting the table for a family meal, a romantic evening, or a special occasion, you’ve got the chance to show others who you are.
For some, tablescaping is a hobby that gives them the opportunity to express their creativity through their various art & crafts skills and unique design aesthetic.
Others take it as an opportunity to share their cultures and traditions with family and friends.
When you share your creations with others, they will feel your passion and love for life. They’ll see that there is more than meets the eye when they look at every detail of your tablescape.
These are 5 ways tablescape can unleash your creativity but the list can go on.
Give this stimulating hobby a try! You can start any time.
Be patient and be willing to take risks as you experiment and learn.
With time, tablescaping will allow you to become a true master of your craft and create something truly unique. If you’re ready to get started, here are 4 essential supplies you will need.
