About table styles and options

When you insert a table, PowerPoint automatically applies a table style to the table. You can see the style options in the Table Styles group on the Design tab. PowerPoint applies a style based on the theme of your presentation. In the example, PowerPoint applied a teal-colored table style to blend with the colors of the Concourse theme.
