The tablescape for your wedding reception tables involves more than just linens with a centrepiece. Coordinating all décor elements into the table involves matching table linens, chair covers, centrepieces and even table settings to create a wow factor for guests when they take their seats. Complementing the rest of the room’s décor is also important for creating an overall consistent theme.
Modern tablescapes also go beyond simple white linens and table runners and bring in various colours and styles of linen materials and fabrics with matching luxurious napkins. A recent trend in table décor is also napkin rings that complement the rest of the table’s décor.
Though I typically only take care of the décor part of the tablescape, I can help you source the table settings or ensure that your venue offers this added element. With this aspect of the tablescape, it’s also key to do more than just simple white china. One elegant way I recommend you add more to your tablescape is with charger plates underneath the serving plates that match the table’s décor and wedding colours.
And of course, no tablescape would be complete without matching chair covers or Chiavari chairs. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you do nothing else with your décor, be sure that you use chair covers – they not only complete the tablescape, but they also add to the overall décor of the entire reception. Whether they’re simple white with a sash or glammed up with a coloured, satin fabric and accented with bling, chair covers are an inexpensive wedding décor element that go a long way.
