Mirrors, champagne, and chocolate…what more do you need? Your guests will love seeing any (or all!) of these tablescape details, along with some of my other favorites. By adding unique, personal touches, your tabletop design will enhance the atmosphere you’ve created and set the tone of your guests’ experience. No matter what event you’re throwing, my detail tricks will help elevate any tabletop.
Mirrors add such a sophisticated and glamorous feel to a reception room. Use one instead of a table linen or use mirrored floral containers. As a tabletop, a flower box, or wherever you would like to reflect soft colors, mirrors are a sleek solution to bringing light to the table. Accompanied by gorgeous florals, elegant stemware, and romantic candles, your table will surely feel like a dreamland.
Specialty champagne flutes are a unique way to set your sophisticated design apart from traditional table settings. Champagne flutes are often given as wedding gifts, so there’s no better place to use them for the first time than when you’re toasting to your special day!
Votives are essential to lighting up your table. Mercury glass, metallics, and jewels all make a difference when it comes to amping up the ambiance. Watch your table glitter and glow!
Who doesn’t love a sweet little surprise? Your guests will enjoy finding their own personal candy dish or chocolate bites when they take their seats. It’s an easy but unique finish that will go a long way!
Your menus are just another place to which you can extend your personal design. If you have a monogram or design you’ve been using in other places throughout your wedding like on invitations or take-home gifts, put it on the menus as well for cohesiveness and personalization.
There are many unique details you could add to each place setting to play up the design or theme. Escort cards and table numbers can be decoratively displayed in small frames that complement the style of the table.
Implement details that will complement the centerpiece or overall style. This delicately placed fresh lavender completes the look of this sweet, rustic table design.
What are your favorite tabletop details?
