It’s Waterford Wednesday friends!
We’ve got a fun post today on how to create the perfect place setting for your event! Whether you’re planning a wedding or any other special occasion, chances are the event will require a place setting. A place setting can be so much more than just a plate with some silverware around it; creating a visually appealing 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:
Keep A Consistent ThemeKeeping a consistent theme is an important part of creating a place setting! Staying true to your event’s 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 and a true representation of your event. The theme of your event can easily be shown through the plate chargers, napkins, etc. that you choose!
Feature A MenuWe can’t recommend this one enough! Including a menu in your place setting will not only allow your guests to preview the meal that will be served (which they will totally appreciate!), but it also gives you the opportunity to get creative in the way you present the menu. 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!
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 thoughtful favor will distinguish each individual and leave them feeling appreciated and thought of!
Don’t forget to check back this Friday for our new Feature Friday posts! Instead of featuring a new linen each week, we will be featuring our very own staff members! We can’t wait to introduce you to the amazing people that make up WER!
