We have three opportunities per day to create a tablescape

 At the table is where we spend quality time with our loved ones

Tablescaping for me is an act of love and care for my family and friends



Carolina Safi, a Brazilian resident in Canada for almost 20 years, is a table stylist and etiquette consultant (certified by the IEP - Institute of Etiquette and Protocol) and founder of Hosting Table - a company focused on etiquette education and good habits, which helps women around the world to transform time around the table to strengthen bonds, create good habits and build relationships. The table plays a crucial role in anyone's personal and professional life: it is at the table that we spend quality time with our loved ones, educate our children, create affectionate memories and make important decisions. Taking care of the table is an act of love, of self-care and care for others – it is, or should be, a 100% intentional habit.



When I was a child, meals were always served at the table. Eating in front of the television was out of the question, since mealtime was sacred family time. Today, I apply the same principles in my own home. Smart gadgets are also banned from the dinner table.

I grew up watching my mom host parties, create beautiful table settings, and decorate the house with flowers. Her guests were always delighted and felt home every time they were with us. My passion for hosting comes from her. At the table is where we spend quality time with our loved ones, and tablescaping for me is an act of love and care. Nothing is better than seeing the reactions of my family and guests when they lay their eyes on what I prepared for them.

When at first you do it just for yourself and your direct family, expanding on a broader scale to do it for friends and extended family becomes an easier task. My passion has blossomed into a creative endeavour by which I will share with you my techniques and tools to help you create your very own tablescapes and be a great host.
