Welcome back, friends!
We’ve got a fun little post for you today! The whole planning process of an event can be overwhelming with so many different decisions that need to be made, so when we find ways to simplify part of the process, we obviously have to share! Today we’re going to share a few simple ways to ensure you have the perfect place settings at your next event! Creating a visually appealing place setting with a beautiful design that matches the theme of your event is simple to do – here are some of our top suggestions for creating a one of a kind look in your place settings:
Sweat The Small Stuff (No, Really!)

We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: details matter at events! So, in the case of your place settings, it’s actually important to sweat the small stuff, aka the details! Subtle details are often the biggest showstoppers at a table setting, and trust us when we say that your guests will take notice of these small, but significant details!
Keep A Consistent Theme
Keeping with your event’s theme is an important piece in perfecting your place settings! Staying true to the theme, whether it be a particular color, pattern or accent piece will ensure that the look of the table as a whole will be consistent. For example, the place setting above was a perfect representation of the “Boho Beach” inspiration that Misty Saves the Day was aiming for!
Layer, Layer, Layer!

Layering linens is a fun and easy way to create visually appealing place settings! How adorable is this tropical table setting with the varying patterns from the full length table linen and leaf runner? Oftentimes, people can be nervous using multiple patterns, but if done correctly, it can really be a wow factor for your guests.
Feature A Menu

We can’t recommend this enough! Whether you choose to place it on top of a charger, fold it in with a napkin or incorporate it in with your centerpiece, featuring a menu is always a plus that will give your overall place setting more visual appeal!
Accent Special Place Settings

Making your guests feel welcome is always an important piece of planning an event! Adding a unique accent or personalized touch to their place setting is an excellent way to do so! Anything from a beautifully designed name card or a nice favor will distinguish each individual and leave them feeling appreciated and thought of. We were completely obsessed with these gorgeous name cutouts set on top of our napkins and plate chargers!
