Staging dining tables with table settings...does it attract buyers?

Staging in Vaughan and the Toronto GTA area we don't typically stage dining tables with complete table settings as most people never use their dining room except at holiday time.

We will stage with a simple table decor like these table settings to create a warm and inviting ambiance in a room...

What do you find is the norm in your area?

Do you set the table with place mats, dishes, glasses, silverware, napkins etc.?

Or do you find a simple, warm and inviting vignette sets the stage to attract your ideal buyers online?

I am sure you will get a ton of staging clients from your post!

Michelle, if you included a photo, I am unable to see it.  

My favorite staging of a dining table is a runner and perhaps a vase of flowers.

Hi Michelle,

Like you, I also prefer an interesting vignette on a dining table, rather than place settings (and certainly no flatware).  I think that buyers can relate to welcoming tabletop decor, and it feels less "forced" in homes that are on the market.

Funny.  I never used to set the dining table, but now I almost always do in a vacant property.  Nothing too fussy; simple white dishes, placemats, napkins and something unexpected in the bowls, like a wood ball, felt ball, blades of grass.  I know, random!

Hi Sally, would love to see some of your table top vignettes. Interesting choices help the property to stand out with buyers when they sometimes see 5 houses in a day.

Michelle, In the past, I have staged tables with placemats and place settings.  In today's "less is more" society, I would leave the table with something simple like the tray you showed or a nice candle or silk flower arrangement in the middel.

I remember in the early years...staging with all it all....from silverware to tea cups. No more fancy...just usually a runner and centerpiece. Sometimes I do a stack of dessert dishes and a nice coffee setting. Depends on what is at hand...I do occupied so I use what I can find.
