If you love entertaining, then you know that your table is the focal point of the festivities. This is where you can showcase your favorite table decor ideas and you don’t have to be Martha Stewart to do it! Whether you're having a sit down party or buffet style, you can bet that your guests will be spending a lot of time at or around the table. After all, isn’t that where the food and drinks are?! Table essentials include:
- A centerpiece
- A great table cloth
- Your favorite serving dishes, plates and utensils
- Other decor depending on your collection and the season
- If you’re going formal then use place cards, (see graphic.)
After you get the essentials down, it’s time to get creative. Start with your holiday or theme and color scheme, (don’t forget to take into consideration the decor and style of your dining room or party venue,) and then do your research.
We love Pinterest to get ideas and to get our creative juices flowing. There are so many great ideas out there. The table decor idea Pinterest board, Be Our Guest, has excellent ideas that go outside the box and include diy table settings that will inspire you and help you to decorate on a budget. There are so many things you combine with your table decor; ribbons, small gifts, jars, candies, handmade crafts, pinecones and bits of nature.
A paper napkin holder and table decoration
The NapkinTree was created for casual dining like outdoor get togethers and picnics. Once we started making different arrangements we found that the sky’s the limit to add to your table decor ideas. Sometimes the guests are aprehensive to remove a napkin because they don’t want to ruin the design. But just encourage them to because it’s so easy to refill!
The NapkinTree is great for events where you might have several guests and need a great centerpiece for your tables. If you have an event like a quinceanera, rehearsal dinner or casual wedding dinner, you can make your centerpieces with the NapkinTree.
How would you combine your NapkinTree with your table decoration?
