5 Ways To Use Leaves As Table Decor
It’s a refreshing alternative to floral arrangements
A touch of green is always welcome in any home. Whether it’s a pot of plants by the window or indoor plants in your foyer, these greens add life to any space. If you’re entertaining at home and you want a centerpiece that is not too frilly, consider using leaves. Here are some ideas:
1. Use wreath as centerpiece.
Wreaths aren’t only for Christmas—hey can be used all year long and can be paired with any table accessory. This dining setup is simple yet elegant—the wreath cocooning the candle makes for a charming focal point on the table. A subdued color scheme of green, white, and cream or ecru makes the look classy.
2. Liven up the table with wide leaves.
If you want to add a bit of a festive vibe, use leaves that have wide shapes. Insert a stem in each of your table napkin rings to create a lively tablescape.
3. Create a tall plant setup at the center of the table.
If you want to create this setup, place only a couple of pots or vases with these tall plants. Remember, part of the dining experience is interaction among the diners—they won’t be able to do that with huge centerpieces covering their faces. Stick to simple cutlery and dinnerware to let your centerpiece be the star.
4. Use potted plants as centerpiece
Small potted plants are just as charming as flowers in vases. You can even paint the pots white or any color you like. Place them in a cluster at the center of the table. You can even use potted herbs as table centerpiece!
5. Create a nature-inspired palette.
Throw in a bit of texture by way of placemats made of natural materials like raffia. If you have cutlery with wooden handles, use them to add to the organic look. As for the leaves, use them in small doses at the center and as accents to your dinnerware vignette to add color.
