What’s a tablescape, you ask?
A tablescape is an arrangement of curated items creatively grouped on top of a table to create a visually appealing scene. Tablescaping is artful, beautiful and fun! Learn more about the history of tablescaping and pointers for creating your own here.
The Inaugural TableScape Championship was a Success!
The first TableScape Championship was held in February 2017 at the Teays Valley ReStore. Four extremely talented and creative local entrepreneurs were challenged to create a tablescape that best represented their style. More than 500 folks voted for their favorite and awarded Bird, Blooms & Butterflies by Design the title. Read more here…
Excitement about the Teays Valley ReStore’s event spread far and wide. In August 2017, the Associated Press released an article about Tablescaping that featured our Putnam County event and two of the 2017 participants. The article ran in newspapers from San Francisco to Washington, DC!

French Country in 2018
This year’s theme for the tablescapes is French County. Inspired by the stunning homes of Provence, French Country design combines European elegance with farmhouse comfort. It’s both sophisticated and rustic incorporating soft color schemes, pops of vibrant hues, distressed woodwork and mixed patterns.
