Finding trendy dining table decor ideas can be a bit of a struggle, especially when you own a small kitchen table. Pinterest and home decor magazines are jam packed with inspiration from large tables. I hate to break it to you world, but not everyone owns a ten seat, ‘Mad Hatter’ style, dining set!
Got a small kitchen table? I feel you. As a relatively new first home owner, my partner and I eat our dinner on a second hand four seat. It isn’t exactly glam, it isn’t the trendiest thing in the world, but hey, it gets the job done!
It’s time to turn your small table into a hip dining destination! Using the cutest decor pieces, I have transformed my tiny table into six different on-trend table decor layouts.
Get your small table at the ready, it’s about to have a makeover!
The Trendy Boho
Who doesn’t love marble and funky, tribal patterns? This table decor is so on-trend that it is almost a cliche!
The best thing about it, is that it can be edited to suit any home decor palette! Simply switch out the colorful table runner to one that compliments your abode.
The way that the red table runner pops from the predominately white accessories is so stunning! Succulents and small, marble shapes are a wonderful way to add detail to a small dining table without it looking swamped.
Keep your table decorations to a minimalist, bohemian theme to ensure it looks streamline. Think chunky shapes, cacti and geometric prints and you’re on the right track!
My puppy, Nala, loves her new ‘den’!
To add a further element of style and comfort, I dotted my seats with the stunning exotic oriental throw pillows. That’s one way to sort out uncomfortable chairs!
Rose Gold Accents
Rose gold is set to be a huge home decor trend for 2017! Combine rose gold accents with cottage-like neutrals and nature-inspired prints for something that feels immediately like home.
To make the place markers, I folded the floral paisley placemats into chic triangles, than dotted with marble coasters. Using fruit or faux fruit is a fabulous way to compliment the stunning embroidery.
If this table layout didn’t already make you feel fuzzy inside, I added some fairy lights in a jar. This accessory alone made my table a force to be reckoned with!
As well as being fantastic to drink, wine can also look really elegant in a fruit bowl. **Wink wink**
Welcome To Bollywood
Minimalists: overt your eyes! This one is for the color-lovers and the gypsy souls! Whether you dream of the exotic East, or even plan to throw a Bollywood-themed dinner party, this is for you!
Bollywood is an abundance of color, so don’t feel shy to clash to your hearts content! The slightly warm edge of this purple table runner works really wonderfully with the red place mats.
If this table had feelings, it would feel like a freaking Princess right now!
I added a chandelier style candle holder and crystal glasses for something really glam. Yes: those are statement necklaces hung on the candle holder! There are no rules and I think that jewelry really can be used as table decor.
If this doesn’t make you want to eat healthily, I don’t know what will! Succulents make fantastic center pieces, so why not adorn your entire table runner with their green goodness?!
I used a variety of real and faux succulents here. I then used sweet potato runners to weave them together. The greenery really brings out the stunning khaki shades in the floral paisley place mats.
When going for a large amount of plants or table decor in your center, keep the rest of the table neutral and simple.
By The Seaside
Summer may still be a few months away, but that doesn’t mean seaside decor shouldn’t make an appearance! Pops of blue, natural materials and fun characters make this table decor a little bubble of happiness in your home.
In order for a look that combined authenticity and fun, I added terrariums dotted with shells and a wooden fish and boat.
Rather than using place mats, I used a piece of coral and a large shell to mark each table place.
Keep your table on the right side of tacky by opting for pale blue tones and neutrals. As fun as turquoise may seem, it may place your table decor in childish territory.
