Adding details to your already beautiful tables can take your design to the next level. Adding these small accents will make your table settings even better. Make sure the items you are adding is relevant to the table theme, color, or overall look. Here are examples of small details we’ve added to our tables.
A centerpiece is a great addition to your table that will grab your guests’ attention. You can make the centerpiece big, small, tall, short, colorful, elegant, and basically anything you want. Having a great centerpiece can complement the overall table design. Below are a few examples of some great centerpiece ideas!
Simple items such as a coconut figurine and a bowl of fruit complement a beach/Hawaiian theme event. Colored feathers in a vase add height and texture to a table as well.
Another great addition you can do is to change up the folds for the napkin. This is a very simple thing to do to add a nice touch to your table. You can experiment with different types of folds, create simple designs, and even incorporate them into your glassware. Here are some great examples of changing up your napkin design. We used two different colored napkins to create “leaves” with the sage napkin and a “rose” with a pink napkin.
Other napkin fold ideas include creating pockets to incorporate themed elements like this earthy table setting designed by Amy of Twitterpated Events.
Lastly, adding little items that cater to your theme can bring out your event theme even more. For example, if you have an island theme, add bananas or even a bowl of sand will do! Having an Easter theme? Put some eggs or even candy to spread the Easter cheer. Put a cluster of grapes for that wine country feel.
Adding small, little details can make a HUGE difference to how your table looks. It can transform your table and allow you to have fun and be creative in the process! You’ll have fun thinking of what you can do to create a fantastic table.
