Organising a wedding or party, and keeping it within budget, can be challenging and stressful. So if you can save money by using good old fashioned basics and still create table settings that will WOW your guests, then it’s a win, win – YES?!
By spending less on your china, glassware and cutlery, you can concentrate more on the things that matter. Your chosen colour scheme, floral displays, favours and centerpieces.
Here’s just some of our suggestions, but with a little imagination and sensible shopping, you can create an incredible table setting for your next event.
If your budget won’t stretch to buying or hiring linen napkins, then you can buy off-cuts of materials and, with a little sewing, make your own in a colour way to suit you. Salvers are a really ingenious way to bring sophistication to your table setting and make a great alternative to a place mat. Be bold with your styling too. The striped fabric above, in a contrasting colour to your flowers, gives this table real class! (Source – L-R – Grey, Cheers, Stripe)
Hessian table runners, potted herbs and candles galore creates a truly nature loving table. Keeping everything crisp and white, including your china, means that your centerpieces will really stand out. (Source – L-R- Hessian, Three, Grey & Peach, Tall Centerpiece)
Use tones of the same colour palette, but with contrasting patterns. For Christmas parties or weddings, glitter is a must. And these luggage label name tags with the addition of spruce is a really cost effective way to create some festive WOW. (Source – L-R – Stripe, Roses, Festive)
