Now Casting: TV Tablescape Competition

From the producers of Extreme Makeover Home Edition (ABC), The Wall (NBC) and Spin the Wheel (FOX), comes a dazzling and artful competition that demonstrates the cutthroat world of competitive tablescaping. 

“Master of the Table”, hosted by Fiona Leahy, “tablescaper to the stars” will challenge professionals and fanatics obsessed with transforming tabletops into jaw-dropping masterpieces and dreamscapes. Through a series of assignments, tablescaping teams of two will be put to the test of elevating table settings, invitations, personalized place settings, centerpieces, backdrops and ornate ceiling fixtures to the level of high-art.

The team to consistently display the most magnificent “feast for the eyes” throughout the competition, will win a grand cash prize, a tableware design launch and the title “Master of the Table”.
