From Ordinary to Extraordinary: 3 Tips for Your Reception Table

How do you take your reception tables from ordinary to extraordinary? It’s all about accessorizing! We’ll skip the centerpiece because that’s a given and focus on 3 other key elements for your tablescape.

1. Linens

Linens are the base for your table setting and is the unifying piece to each and every item that’s put on top of them. You’ll want the color and texture to match your theme but be sure that it’s not too overpowering. Don’t forget about layering. That’ll give your table a subtle, yet diverse look.

2. Napkins

You may not realize this but the napkin presentation can either make or break the entire look of your table. It’s the first thing that guests see when they seat themselves at a dinner table. Try different folds, fun colors and holders to figure out which works best with the rest of your arrangement.

3. Make It Personal

Place settings are not only a time to get creative but also a time to get personal. When you add something meaningful to your table it creates an intimate atmosphere that welcomes your guests and allows them to feel closer to your family.
