6 Fresh Table Ideas to Inspire Your Next Party

Make your next party or special event one to remember! Here are 6 fresh ideas to inspire your next event. From linens to flowers, placecards to glassware the details matter! But, rule #1: Always remember to have fun when planning! Let's get partying...

 

1. Fun Linens
We love the look of this navy sequin linen. Perfect for any party! It adds a touch of sparkle and great texture to the table. It's a sophisticated, yet fun idea that will look great throughout the night!

2. Unique Flatware/Glasses
These gold rimmed glasses and chargers are the perfect solution for a simple and elegant look. The gold detail adds a hint of warmth to the overall setting and the clear glass chargers allow the patterned tablerunner to shine through. The smallest details make the largest impression!

3. Different arrangements for each table
A large trend for 2016 is varied centerpieces for each table. Whether some tables have high centerpieces and others have low centerpieces or every arrangement is different, this can be a great way to add visual interest to your event overall. At the event pictured below, every vase has a different pop of color and different blossom. This can create a playful look for a fun party.

4. Custom calligraphy
Nothing says 'personalized' like custom calligraphy. Whether it's hand drawn table numbers or cursive place cards, customized details are sure to impress your guests.

5. Blossoms at each place setting
For a really over-the-top look, add blossoms at each place setting. This could be as simple as a stick of rosemary, some delicate petals, or a striking floral stack as pictured. Blossoms at each place setting create a cohesive look and make an event feel personalized.

6. Think up!
Who says flowers have to be on the table? It may take some planning, but floral chandeliers or custom hanging arrangements like this one can create a spectacular look at any event. Custom-made birch hangers dripping with orchids and suspended glass globes were the perfect showpiece for this large space.

5 Hot New Wedding Trends for 2016

1. Long tables for a more intimate dinner vibe.
The experts at Bridal Guide are saying round tables are out and long tables are in. Any setting that creates less of a banquet feel and more of an intimate gathering is on trend in 2016. We love this shot by Lisa Rigby Photography, that highlights an amazing feature of this unique Provincetown wedding: a long table down a dock. For this table we created an array of varied arrangements with vintage milk glass and textural blossoms.

2. Loose, organic florals continue.
2015 was full of blooming, organic florals and the bloggers at StyleMePretty predict that 2016 will  be no different. Bring on the garden roses. Bring on the dahlias. 2016 here we come.

3. Metallics, Metallics, Metallics! Specifically, Rose Gold is going to be a popular color for 2016.
As time has shown, metallics never get old! The color predictors at Glamour, are saying rose gold is in. Metallics add the perfect touch of fun and sophistication to any event. We love this shimmery rose gold sequin linen featured on the sweetheart table at one of our weddings. It made the perfect pop of glamour.

 

4. Grand Exits!
Whether it's sparklers, flags, kazoos or confetti, grand exits are just as fun as grand entrances! Exits make for a perfect photo opp with a more casual + fun feel because the night is in party mode! As HuffPost Weddings explains, it's a great way to keep guests engaged 'til the end. Also, fun ideas after the exit like food trucks or takeaway items are always an extra treat for guests!

Hello, bare feet. Hello, beachy vibes. Bloggers at Brit+Co suggest zen is the key to weddings in 2016. Keeping it easy and casual, by having a wedding in a laid back setting makes it easier on couples and their guests. More fun, less stress.
