Tablescape Championship at Teays Valley ReStore. Ooh la la!

Tablescape Championship at Teays Valley ReStore. Ooh la la!

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

2017 Tablescapes

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.

Thrift Store Art Causes a Double Take

Thrift Store Art Causes a Double Take

Every thrift store is full of mass-produced artwork that once proudly adorned the walls of someone’s home. Some of it is charming, but most of it is alarming…ly bad.

But add a little paint, a little creativity and voila: you’ve recreating old art!

There’s a name for that…

The process of recreating art by adding new elements was coined “redirecting” by Canadian artist David Irvine. The pop culture twists Irvine puts on tired old thrift store art is the inspiration for the ReStore’s third annual art show: Double Take.
