Elaborate staging on dining room tables looks fussy. The Martha Stewart-type tablescapes I see in MLS listings should stop. A table set with formal place settings looks stupid-staged. Napkins in wine goblets is really stupid-staging. I refer to it as "stupid-staged" because staging is supposed to be relateable, not contrived.
Many folks are under the impression that when staging a dining room it should look like a formal dinner party will begin any moment. I say wrong-y dong-y--Stupid-Staged. A dining room table should be simply staged. The tabletop shows best with minimal accents: textiles, ceramics, metal or wire baskets, candles and natural elements.
Green apples, a lush Boston Fern, or fresh flowers look amazing on a dining room table. Fresh and natural accessories have energy that attracts people.
Sorry---I digress from discussing the dining room tabletop.....

I have to show you just one picture of stupid-staging with napkins in wine glasses. I don't get it....
Happy Friday, y'all!
