Tabletop Vignettes, Environmentally Friendly

Tabletop vignettes are popular for decorating tabletops and shelves. They add to the ambiance and feel of a room. They are also an excellent way to display your style and values. Here are a few decorating tips for creating a vignette as well as environmentally friendly decorating ideas.

 

There are basic decorating ideas for creating the perfect vignette. Height might not seem important, but pay attention to varying heights in your décor to get a well-balanced display. While varying the height of the objects in the vignette is important, gradually increasing the height can also accomplish this goal. This trick works well with different types of décor such as candlesticks and vases. Also, use similar objects to create a theme for your vignette, and group smaller objects together. Using a tray for the vignette is also popular.

 

 

For the environmentally conscious person, there are many nick knacks and decorating options made from recycled materials. Some examples are wool nesting bowls, woven fiber vases, fabric storage baskets, repurposed cork décor, used wine glasses or bottles, mason jars or other glass bottles or vases, sliced wood centerpieces, and reclaimed wooden picture frames,

To save money and buy used items, shop at resale or thrift stores such as Goodwill or the Salvation Army.

 

Natural objects like flowers or plants are great additions to a tabletop vignette. They are also many plants that add to the air quality of a home. A few examples are the Garden Mum, they are inexpensive and remove ammonia, benzene, and formaldehyde from the air. Another option is the spider plant. They thrive in bright or indirect sunlight and are easy to grow. They remove formaldehyde and xylene from the air. A Dracaena plant is another option. Those are a few options, but there are multiple types of plants that improve the air quality in a home. Some more examples are the Ficus plant, Peace Lily, Boston Fern, Aloe Vera, and Bamboo Palm. You can even use recycled wine bottles or recycled wood as planters.

 

These are a few ideas for creating an environmentally friendly vignette, but there are many more possibilities. Vignettes can match the season, holiday, or they can be designed to match the color scheme or display the trip of a lifetime. The ideas are endless.
