Hey, party peeps! I’m continuing today with my Tablescape Design Series where I share with you how to style a dining table 5 different ways for 5 different party themes using solid colored tableware. Today it’s, HOW TO STYLE A MODERN SAFARI PARTY TABLESCAPE!
Are you looking for dinner party ideas? Well, this Modern Safari Party Tablescape! is one of my favorites using only 2 colors! That’s right! Create a stunning Modern Safari Party Tablescape with my Girlfriend Tips and an online shopping list below with prices to create this yourself.
1. GIRLFRIEND TIP: START WITH MONOCHROMATIC SOLID COLORED PARTYWARE!
To give this table a modern feel, I started with a monochromatic color palette of silver and white that really popped on my dark wood dining table.
2. GIRLFRIEND TIP: ADD PATTERNS & TEXTURES & METALLICS IN THE SAME COLOR PALETTE!
When working with a monochromatic table design, it’s important to add patterns and textures in the same color palette so that the table doesn’t look flat. Okay, y’all already know that I add sparkle and shine to almost all of my tablescapes. Here I used metallic silver chargers, sparkly sequin runner and metallic silver vases in the centerpiece.
I also added pattern into the centerpiece in the same colors with this shiny silver glass vases that have a metallic giraffe skin pattern on them.
Continue the centerpiece down the table by adding these silver mercury glass stemmed votive candle holders on either side of the vases. This adds visual interest to the middle of the table while seamlessly working with the color palette.
You are going to love me for turning you on to these amazing silver metallic ombre glasses from Oriental Trading! OMG, they are just gorgeous and definitely a splurge item on my table. The great thing is that they can be used in tons of table designs so you will get lots of use from these so they for me, were worth the investment to add eight of these to my dinner party inventory.
Finish off your place settings with disposable silver cutlery. I know…disposable silver cutlery? A MUST HAVE! Silver and white chevron napkins layered on the plates break up the solid colors and layering the plates on top of woven metallic silver chargers adds texture and pattern which really makes this place setting pop!
3. GIRLFRIEND TIP: ADD MODERN WHITE DECORATIONS!
To decorate the table, use modern white decorations. For this modern safari table, I used modern all white animal decorations in the centerpiece. I also placed a cute ceramic white elephant at each place setting that also served as a take home favor for guests.

I’ve never been a huge animal print fan so this modern take on safari style is perfect for my taste. I love the pops of white and the tiny little animals. It’s so chic.
Cindy Ingalls says
I really love the monochromatic look with the pops of white and silver. It’s so unexpected and stylish.
I really like the idea of a modernized safari party table setup. It’s much less cheesy than a traditional one with tacky animal print. This looks classy!
This all looks so fancy. I like that just silver paper plates make it look so much fancier.
I love how the setup was made up. At first you would not notice that it is a Safari theme, it turned out a very elegant setup. Kudos for the idea.I might use this as an inspiration for my home make-over.
My guest going to love this arrangements next week .. Thanks for the tips .
Fancy and fun! I really like the idea for a tablescape.
What a great party theme! It’s so chic but playful and fun!
