Think back to that absolutely stunning wedding you recently attended. Take your mind specifically to that moment you entered the reception area and nodded satisfactorily to yourself, a look of total admiration plastered on your face. What was it that first captured your sight? Yes, there might have been a glittering chandelier or some colored hanging balloon but think more deeply.
While the title of this article might have given the point away, the fact remains that the chairs and more so the tables played a pivotal role in determining whether the interior decor was an instant hit or terrible flop. To a well trained and experienced wedding planner like A Fine Touch Limited, tables play a pivotal role in transforming a space into something that sparks admiration.
While there are some basic things that can be done to walls and ceilings to create a wedding atmosphere, the furniture is where the creative juices can flow more easily. There is so much room for experimentation. The only limit is the imagination. Here are some ideas to run away with.
Table Cloths and Place Mats
This is usually the starting point when it comes to decorating a table. There is no rule to the kind of color or texture that works for a wedding. Let your personality and theme determine the direction you choose to follow. Have fun layering the covers and cloths. Play around with drapes and ribbons to create the kind of effect you want.
Yet another popular way to create that “wow” effect. There are so many different models of table lighting available. From the good old candle holders to candles in pumpkins to some more ingenious fixtures, you are spoilt for choice.
Now this takes the cake when it comes to table decor. While the most preferred method is flower arrangements, allow your mind to wonder free. From strewn leaves to pebbled jars and fruit bowls. Nearly anything within reason goes.
Anything placed on the table can either work for against everything else. Ensure that the utensils are clean and polished and of the highest quality possible. Guests’ name cards and table numbers should complement the rest of the decor.
Take care however not to overwhelm your table with too many items. Remember the basic rule: Less is more.
