I’ve planned many events and weddings and one of the most interesting and photo-worthy aspects of any event is the decor on your tablescape. Of course, you need all of the typical items like flatware and dishes, but I believe it’s the little details that make your event unique and stand out. I’ve pulled together a list of the top 5 items to have on your table to make your tablescape wow your guests!

1. Stationery!!
I tell every one of our clients that stationery is such an important part of each and every event you plan. Starting with your invitation, it gives your guests the very first impression of what is to come on the wedding day such as formality and the look and feel for the day. We LOVE to bring that look and feel through to every aspect of the wedding day but especially into the tablescape with beautiful table numbers, place cards, and menu cards.

2. Linen
A floor-length linen is a must when dressing a table. Nothing is worse than seeing the legs of the table and having a floor-length linen finishes the table off perfectly.

3. Chairs
At Lux Events, we really love a good chair. Whenever we can, we really encourage our clients into bringing in a beautiful chair instead of trying to dress up a regular chair at the venue. Chair covers had their place at events, but it’s time to see them go. Chair covers are uncomfortable for guests to sit on, rarely stay in place and really just aren’t all that pretty. Now, a beautiful chair can finish off a tablescape perfectly. You can spend $500 on a centrepiece, but if your chair isn’t fitting with the design, everything else you do is lost.

4. Flatware
Gold is still a big colour going into next wedding season and so why not bring gold in through the cutlery at your wedding? It’s those subtle touches that really make a tablescape pop.

Practicality
You have to ensure that everything you have in mind for the tablescape is going to actually work. If you are having tall centrepieces, make sure they are tall enough so that the bulk of the floral is above people so they can still visit. Do you have plate chargers as part of your design? At some venues, and depending on your guest count, they may try to put 10 people on a regular 5 foot round table and so plate chargers will not fit. Does your venue allow you to bring in open flame? Typically, as long as the dish the candle is sitting in is tall enough to cover the flame, the venue will allow it. And candlelight is such a beautiful way to finish off a beautiful tablescape.
