The first step to all dream table-scapes is the fabric base. Choose a simple fabric table cloth, table runner, or even a cheesecloth to give your table the natural base to build off of. Light neutral colors allow bolder pieces to take center stage while still weighing the space down visually and protecting your table from any stains or spills. Natural elements like burlap make a simple base and instantly bring a table into the fall season.
