Table Art’s Top tips
Linens do more than protect tables and soak up spills. Table linens establish guest expectations and support your event mood or theme.
Here are a few tips to consider when choosing the style, colour, and types of linens for your event:
What is the existing decor?
Choose colours that harmonize not clash with existing elements such as the carpet, wall panelling’s etc.
Is the event casual or formal?
A long, damask tablecloth signals an elegant event, whereas a checked tablecloth adds a sense of fun.
What is your event theme?
Don’t just pick a tablecloth because it is the theme colour. The right tablecloth accents not only the dominant colour but also the pattern and texture, of the dinnerware plus room décor. Colour is a design tool that changes the mood of the table setting without changing the tableware
Will you use centrepieces?
If your centrepiece is colourful or elaborate, ensure your linen choices don’t compete for attention.
