CORPORATE MONDAYS: GIVING YOUR TABLE SETTING THE WOW FACTOR
Planning a wedding, fundraiser or a corporate event? We believe having a table setting that stands out is just as important as the the dishes that are served at your event. Personalizing your table setting to reflect something about the event theme you are having or the season makes it all the more unique.
In the last few years, tablescapes have become very popular among those planning events. Not only does the table decor helps to determine a theme, it creates great experience for your guests depending on what your theme is. A well decorated table helps to capture the ambiance you are trying to set for the event.
Where do the majority of the guests spend their time during an event? The table. It is then safe to believe that this is the most important places in an event. It takes a lot more to setting any table than knowing where to place a knife and fork. It requires great imagination and a creative touch to turn a simple table into a place that will serve that elegant meal. The size and shape of a table also plays an important role in making sure your guests are comfortable. Rectangular tables are known to encourage conversations on a table where as round tables makes you talk to only those sitting beside you.
How to have a great table setting:
– Determine the type of event you are having
-Determine the event theme
-Collect items and pieces that are directly related to the theme to create and determine the decor. These items could be the type of linens you would like to use, items to create a centrepiece or to make an arrangement.
-The items do not need to match but they must be able to complement and enhance the look and theme that you picked.
PS using bold patterns and prints are known to create powerful statement.
A great tablescapes should be functional enough but must also help enhance the overall look of your event decor. Avoid clutter, but keep it layered. Adding different heights to the setting will give it that unique look. Different shaped centrepieces with varying heights, a mix of linens (bold, patterned, textured), to making it fun and unique are the some of the different ways you can add layers.
