Vignette 101

A vignette is “a short scene that gives us a brief glimpse into the life of a character of place.” They can be food tables, dessert tables, sign-in tables or just a fun display for any event.

If you are having trouble bringing your vignette to life, surf the internet or flip through some magazines to find inspiration.

First, decide what your vignette will showcase. Will it be a dessert table like this one from Amy Altas?

Or will it be a guest sign-in table like this from the Handmade and Heartfelt Blog?

After you find your inspiration, draw a sketch to help plan out your vignette. Think about what materials to use, the color scheme and what décor will be on the table. The sketch will really help you visualize your vignette to life.
