As an Atlanta wedding rental company with several years of experience in the industry, we have guided hundreds of customers in planning and executing enjoyable and unforgettable events. Through the years, we have gained valuable insights regarding the different elements that go into the making of a successful event.
An often overlooked design detail is the table setting that you create for an event. In our experience, this is a crucial design element for the success of your event as well as the enjoyment of your guests. Below are three tips for an impressive tablescape gleaned from our years as a successful Atlanta party rental company.
Wow your guests from the moment they take their seats with a centerpiece that captures their interest and delights their imagination. Floral centerpieces are common and they often do a wonderful job at beautifying a table because of their color and sweet aroma, but you don’t have to limit yourself to flowers. Candles, ribbons, miniature picture frames, brightly-colored glass, crystal vases — these and many more can be incorporated into a centerpiece. Just have a theme and stick to it so your design does not come across as confusing or unplanned.
The tablecloth, napkins, chair covers and table runners all fall under table linen. Set your creativity free when working with these versatile design elements. Layer tablecloths for added interest, fold your napkins in an unconventional way to pique the curiosity of your guests or use a table runner to “connect” your guests to each other. Try to see linen as more than just a table cover. Imagine it as a vital design component and let it enhance your overall decor for the event.
The china, glass and flatware you choose should also complement your event decor. Formal events call for a different set of flatware and china than more casual get-togethers. Remember to coordinate with the caterer so you will set out all the necessary table implements that are needed for the dishes that are to be served for the event.
