You’ve got the outfit, and plans for a ceiling draped in flowers and bright shiny baubles are underway, but there’s one more important element to consider when decorating for your next private event: the tabletops. Sure, you could go minimalist and put a floral centerpiece and plain white china on the table and call it a day, but why not go all out and make your tabletops stand out? Here are some trending tabletop decoration ideas for 2023 at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC!

Glasses and China

The glasses and china at your private event are very important elements, because not only do they enhance your decor, they serve a purpose, too. Form meets function with your dinnerware so make sure you get the right sizes and enough for each course. Trending patterns for 2023 include Art Deco, Marble, Rustic, and Tactile (think hobnail). Trending colors include silver and gold, which are perpetually popular, especially for trim. Style experts recommend stacking your dishes on top of each other on the table, and tying silverware together next to the dishes for an elegant look. Different glasses can be clustered together next to each other.


Candles are a romantic staple on any tabletop, but they’re trending this year. While there isn’t a particular style or color that’s coming in hot, just be sure to use unscented candles so the scent doesn’t mix with the scent of the meal you are serving. You may also want to consider flameless candles for safety reasons. Many flameless candles look realistic and can be turned on and off with a remote, so there’s no smoke and no flame!


Table linens are also important elements of your table setting. Make sure your linens match the color scheme of your event. Linens you may want to consider in addition to table cloths and cloth napkins are placemats and runners. These additional pieces add color and dimension to your tabletop. Bring out the color of your dishes with accent colors in your table linens, or go strictly neutral and let your tabletop accessories shine on their own. The possibilities are endless.

Centerpieces & Decorations

Finally, don’t forget the centerpieces, as these are the focal point of your tabletop. Whether it’s flowers, tree branches, lanterns, wreaths, pumpkins, or another item, make it stand out in an ornate vase or on a pedestal.
