Easy table top decorating with the display rules of 1-2-3 …..
Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the How to Decorate series hosted by Home Stories A to Z
with Beth and 23 other amazing bloggers! Welcome if you’re coming over from the super-awesome Lindsay’s blog!
Do you ever have problems putting things together? Do you struggle with creating cohesive displays and vignettes? This is the post for you! Today I am going to show you how to create pretty and cohesive display using the display rules of 1-2-3! And I’ll show you step by step with a bunch of examples too!
The first thing you need to do before you start is clear your surface and make a completely blank canvas.
I am using my front hall entry table as an example. Once you’ve cleared your surface,add your back drop if you want one. It can be either a picture or a large platter or something similar.
Then pick things that seem like they might go together, that have some kind of relationship and then start using your display rules!
1. Pick something tall to put on one side
2. Add something medium to the other.
I chose a stack of books and a candle
3. Pick something small for your third item.
And there you go! Your display is done. How easy was that?
And see how it still looks good when I swap out items?
So easy, right?
I’ll show you again. Here’s my backdrop.
2. Medium 3.Small
And here’s if I swap out items of roughly the same height.
Or if I remove the backdrop
and then add a new one.
and I’ll swap out somethings again, same backdrop.
See how it is so versatile?
In fact here’s some stuff from my kitchen and fridge to prove it!
and FYI. this is hubby’s jelly. I am a strawberry girl all the way.
I hoped this helped you see how easy it is to put together displays. One a large item like fireplace mantle or buffet, just repeat the rules on a large basis, always grouping your items in 3’s, tallest on the outside.
Head over next to the amazing Heather and Vanessa’s for the next stop and you can start the entire tour from the beginning at Beth’s.

Thank you so much for posting this! I’ve been trying to arrange a little table in our hallway for a week now and couldn’t figure out how to make anything work. This will definitely help out a lot!
Thank you so much for display examples! I always struggle with putting things together. Now I’m gonna go put it to practice. 🙂
Great ideas. Would a mirror work as a backdrop?
It would! I love using mirrors all of the time!
