No matter who you’re celebrating with or how you’re celebrating New Year’s Eve, welcome 2021 with a bang with a swoon-worthy living tablescape.

Yes, we know this holiday season is different from the previous years, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the holidays, especially New Year’s Eve, festive and fun. You can celebrate it with a gorgeous living tablescape inspired by Bloomscape. Since indoor plants have gained so much popularity this year, we’re ditching over-the-top holiday table settings with a simple but chic living tablescape of succulents and small indoor plants.


Step #1: Cultivate

The key to creating the perfect living tablescape is to cultivate boughs of evergreen and sprigs of eucalyptus. It’s more sustainable, and it will definitely fill your dining space with the scent of actual holiday cheer.

Step #2: Add Even More Green

Since we’re creating a living tablescape, add more small pots of plants around the table to make it look more lively. Create a centerpiece by grouping potted plants together. It’s best to decorate with small potted plants to create a barrier between the two sides of the table. Plus, it won’t interfere with your guests’ conversation.


Step #3: Add Color

Decorate your table with colorful plants, such as succulents, Kalanchoe, Oxalis, and Polka Dot plant. You can also add holiday plants, like Christmas Cactus and Poinsettia, or spread sprigs of Holly to add a touch of festive red to your table. Complete the look by adding colorful candles and string lights.

Step #4: Sit Back and Enjoy!

Of course, once you completed your living tablescape, it’s finally time to sit back, admire your work, and enjoy dinner with your family and friends while you wait for the clock to strike midnight.

These are just the basic steps on how to create a living tablescape. Let your imagination take control in creating the perfect garden-themed tablescape for any occasion. You can also transform your dining room in 2021 with these trends. Learn more interior design tips and ideas on Omysa’s Design blog. Happy decorating!
