The Brief

We want you to create a styled tablescape based on the theme of Easter. You can go as traditional or as abstract as you want. If you are a student of the Academy consider what we have taught you and what you know about tablescape design or use this as an opportunity to try your hand at styling your dinner table for the first time. Consider colour palette, florals or props, and the different dining elements.

The Prize

We are excited to announce that our judge for this challenge is none other than styling pro and wedding industry entrepreneur Louise Beukes of B.Loved and the B.Loved Hive. This really is a great opportunity to get your work in front of the industry experts like Louise.
The prize has been provided for us by Styled Images who create beautifully styled images for Creative Entrepreneurs. They are offering the winner a styled images pack of 10 gorgeous images that can be downloaded and used by the winner in accordance with their terms of use. This is a great opportunity to use these professional images to add some creative visuals to your business website or social media or just beautify your personal instagram feed.
