The next thing to do for your farmhouse dining table decor is to incorporate table runners. We use it to make the table more visually appealing and add rustic charm to your dining room. The rustic dining table centerpiece also helps to define the seating arrangement while connecting the placemats. Using a table runner gives a consistent and symmetrical finish and brings everything on the table together. A table runner made of premium cotton and natural jute is best for farmhouse dining tables.


4. Use Placemats or Plate Charger

Besides serving as a decor item, a placemat protects your dining table from watermarks, food stains, and heat damage (keep hot dishes on the placemat). This one is a must to include while decorating your farmhouse dining table accessories.

If you don’t want to use placemats, you can use plate chargers instead. You can make it yourself by winding up some thick jute thread. Remember to make the charger only an inch or larger than your plates.


5. Add Plants And Flowers

Adding plants and flowers to any space brings serenity. My personal favorite is lavender, especially on the dining table. Because lavender is known for aromatherapy, it promotes relaxation and treats anxiety, nausea, etc. Also, while having dinner or chatting at the dining table with your family or friend, you want to make the most of the quality time, right? However, you choose other plants like Chrysanthemums, Begonias, Cyclamen, Kalanchoe, etc.
