Do you LOVE pretty things? Do you have an event coming up? Read more here about how to make a killer table setting for you and your guests! Your table scape is what your guests will see the most and pay the most attention to at your big event! The guests sitting at the table will be there for most of your event eating, drinking, listening to toasts, watching people dance, and will pay attention to your decoration you use and if they LOVE it, will take photos and share with their family and friends and will talk about it!
Here are 3 AWESOME table essentials to make sure your guests remember the table they sat at…
1. Make sure you have a textured table and awesome centerpiece!
You can do this by choosing a farm wood table or other style of table to match your theme. If you want to stay with the standard table with a linen, make sure you add a runner or table linen that will POP!
2. Create an interesting place setting!
A place setting can range from a charger to a paper placemat to a wooden slice shown here! It’s important to have something in front of your guests as their plate may not be there when they sit down and may be taken away from them after they have finished eating. Having a place setting helps the guests claim a space on the table thats theirs.
3. Don’t “over do” your place setting!!
You want to coordinate your place setting with your overall theme and color and doing so with your plates/napkins/silverware/etc. can play a HUGE role in this. The plates especially tend to be a big statement piece whether you go on the simple side or bold, it makes a great impact to your overall feel!
Your entire event should coordinate all together, but as you can see, your table setting has a HUGE impact on your guests and if you follow these “rules” for your table scape, you will be sure to have an awesome event!!
Good luck planning!
