Designing Tables 101
Scan any event-themed Pinterest board or flip through any wedding magazine and you’ll find tablescapes in abundance. Crisp, bold linens, one-of-a-kind centerpieces and elaborate place settings come together to form one of the most popular—and impactful—aspects of an event: the table design.
Table styling has grown well beyond the white tablecloths and folded napkins of the past. Once a necessary seating arrangement, guest tables today are often the focal center of attention with extra detail given to the guest experience.
Couples and clients are being influenced by tablescape inspiration from every direction. As event professionals, it’s up to us to understand not just the basics of table styling, but also how to turn a simple design into a fully customized look that brings the client’s vision to life.
