Designer Tablescape: Janet Perry

graphics 1

Over the next few weeks are asking each of the J Banks Designers to style a tablescape on round, glass table from our retail store. We have given them the freedom to create anything they want; from a table setting for entertaining to a beautiful design vignette – the sky is the limit!  The end result will show how thoughtful accessories and attention to detail can change the overall ambiance of a room.

This week, we are featuring one of our favorite tablescapes created on Christmas Eve by Designer, Janet Perry. As the holidays come to a close, we wanted to reflect once again on the meaning of the season and keep a positive focus for the New Year!


JB: We love this dramatic tablescape reflecting the nativity scene!  It’s organic, creative and very elegant all at the same time.  Tell us about your design. 

JP: I was in our warehouse and saw some palettes laying on the floor.  That was the “light bulb moment” or trigger for my creation.  We simply dismantled them and used them to make the main structure for the crèche display. From there, I gathered natural materials – burlap, live greenery, drift wood – to serve as a simplistic backdrop for our holiday collections from J Banks Retail. 


JB: What is your favorite item or items in the vignette/tablescape? Why?

JP: My favorite items used are the items that came from “our front yard’- all natural. Of course, I also love the handcrafted figurines. They are so simple, yet lovely. 


JB: Tell us a little bit about your color choices & how you were inspired.

JP: My inspiration came from the meaning of Christmas. Simplicity, monochromatic- the beauty in the subject.  


JB: What advice can you give for your clients about dressing a table?

JP: Dress for the occasion. Bring the outdoors in and show off your personal collections!
