Every now and then I stumble across a truly unique company, and table + cloth is just that. I met Aneen whilst contemplating doing a greenery shoot for the blog and immediately wanted to have her a part of it. She is the queen bee of styling the modern table and creating pretty tablescapes!
What is table + cloth?
table + cloth creates modern and unique tablescapes, inspired by beautiful design, that will transform your dining table whether for everyday use, calendar events or special celebrations. The table + cloth solution saves you time and our offering includes styling the look, sourcing fabrics + accessories and delivering it to your doorstep.
The website explains the detail, but essentially you start the process by browsing the collection which boasts with various pre-styled looks, ranging from complete table settings to placemat + napkin combos as well as a linen only category. You then request a quote for the specifications that you want e.g. a quote for a 6, 8, 12 or more place settings. You also provide your table dimensions so that tablecloths and runners are custom made to you requirements. The whole table setting is styled but you can just order the parts you want. table + cloth does all the sourcing, from tablecloths and runners, to crockery, cutlery and glassware. They love local and source from local artisans, manufacturers and designers as far as possible.
Once you have approved the quote and made payment your parcel is packed and delivered straight to your door.
Aneen spent the past 12 years in the corporate world that included a 6 year stint in New York City. Her creative senses took flight in the Big Apple, where memories of fashion, design, remarkable food experiences and more were made.
Her love for creating pretty table settings sparked the idea of creating a one stop shop that could take the time spending to collect unique and pretty pieces away for others letting them spend more time connecting with their families when planning special occasions.
Why this obsession with setting tables? Simple. I am drawn to real people. Real connections give me energy and hope and a reason to celebrate life. In my life a beautifully set table with delicious food and loved ones have made these connections possible.
Are there custom tablescape options available?
You can set up a design consultation with Aneen for special celebrations and small weddings. She will work together with yu to create a bespoke tablescape to your heart’s desire. It can either be a completely new look or start with what you have and source additional table accessories to perfect it. table + cloth can even assist with adding the flowers and greenery to your tablescape.
If you want a bespoke tablescape, schedule your design consultation sooner rather than later. A rental offering is also available for parties of 10 or more.
