Table Decorations & Centrepieces

Product code: ART001

When it comes to choosing table decorations & centrepieces for your event there are a whole raft of options available.

For me, the first consideration is the type of event the time of day it is taking place. Is it a day time corporate event? A wedding breakfast that goes into an evening reception? A charity ball or swanky award ceremony?

If your event is a day time corporate event then consider what sort of event it is. Is it informational, inspirational, celebratory? An informational event would possibly require a table centrepiece that is low and understated that simply brightens up the table but is by no means a focal point so table decoration would be kept to a minimum.

An inspirational or celebratory daytime event could handle something that stands out a little more, maybe a brightly coloured floral table centre but again I would opt for something that is low on the table and I wouldn’t add any additional table decorations.

A wedding on the other hand is a very different affair often needs to take a daytime event into the evening when lighting can really come into its own. It is vitally important that your guests can see and converse with each other over the table so be sure that the table centrepiece does not obscure anyone’s view.

Consider the room itself. Does it have very high or very low ceilings? If it does then very tall table centrepieces can work superbly in both these extremes. To make your table centre really stand out during the evening, add lighting to it. This can be as simple as having a light inserted into your table centrepiece itself in the form of a floralyte (some can be submersed in water too), an LED lightbase that your table centrepiece would sit on, or you could go the whole hog and invest in pinspotting which is a professional lighting system that trains a bright white spot light on each of your table centrepieces. Amazing! Additional table decorations can add even more sparkle to your table. The quickest and most cost effective are tea lights and table crystals. Both of these can be hired or purchased in colours that tie in with the rest of your colour scheme or you could opt for the clear variety.

Your table stationery will also add a decorative touch to your table and there are so many beautiful options to choose from!

Charity Balls give you the chance to really go to town! Here you want colour & drama after all you will probably want your guests to really get in the party mood and part with their hard earned cash in favour of your charity.

Personally I would opt for a tall table centrepiece that will really knock your guests’ socks off as they enter the room as this will set the scene for the event as a whole. If you can, light up your table centrepieces too. The table centrepiece style will depend on the type of event it is. If you are organising a smart black tie ball then you will want something to mirror the sophistication of the event. There are some beautiful tall floral table centrepieces you can opt for. If it is a themed event then you can have great fun choosing a table centre that is themed around the event. Again, like a wedding you can then team up table decorations as well. From the table stationery (place cards, table names/numbers etc) to napkin rings.

Hopefully that will help create a stunning table using creative table decorations & centrepieces!
