The coolest events are those that turn aspects of the celebration that may not seem that important into really incredible memories. When planning your soiree, the seating and table arrangements can truly be a last thought, but honestly, all the fun is in the details!
Ideas for creative seating include:
Hammocks: Hang them from palm tree to palm tree for beach style.
Pillows: Throw them on an old quilt or antique rug for a bohemian feel. You can mix and match soft and cute cushions.
Event Furniture: These are often seen as ottomans, couches and day beds in a South Beach vibe. These make a HUGE impact on décor and on your guests. They are perfect for beach festivities!
Clear Chivari Chairs: These are awesomely reflective in the glittering candlelight of dinner receptions. They are clear and look like crystals.
High Barstools: Use these for bar height seating for high top cocktail tables to “elevate” your look.
Vintage Chairs: Found at antique shops and used furniture stores, mismatched or all matching, old and vintage chairs will make your wedding truly one of a kind. Mix and match these classic treasures with rented, more modern styled rental chairs to enhance the distinctive look of your affair.
Benches: These are the latest trend in outdoor seating for the ceremony and for the reception and weddings. The pillows listed above can also be strewn on these. White or wooden – benches add a look of easy going elegance. They can also bring about a picnic feel to an outdoor party.
Included in creative seating is the various kinds of tables that you can use like circular, square, long rectangular feasting tables and combinations of all styles. The options for tables are literally endless! And what’s more…to make the look all your own, add your choice of colorful and textured linens and napkins, centerpieces, favors and place cards to design your own personal chic approach with beautiful styles from Linens by the Sea.
Ideas for creative tables:
The decorations for the tables at your event set the tone for the mood of the reception. When deciding on what to put on your tables, you might want to consider making sure that your guests partake in beautiful sights, interactive participation and heightened creativity.
Engaged Arrangements: Throw away cameras are great for the dinner tables. They are also a good way to be sure to get photos of everyone. Pile high used and tattered books to have something for your guests to quickly read or stack them in a vintage look. Pretty ribbons in your event’s colors peeking out through the pages adds a pop of colorful flair!
All Natural Table Centerpieces: Whole fruit like lemons, limes and oranges bring a fresh flavor to a table and make incredible centerpieces in tall crystal vases. This could be colorful betta fish swimming in clear bowls with clean water. You can even send the fish as favors home with your guests. Flowers and plants, of course, are a classic live table element!
Eat Your Centerpiece:
Let them eat cake! Small, distinct decorated cakes at each table make yummy viewing and delicious munching after a fabulous served meal. Edible fruit centerpieces can also be colorful and scrumptious.
For creative tables, never forget the place settings themselves! Square or round, white, black or ivory, rimmed with gold or silver, with chargers as a base or not, the options for dishes is limitless. Other amazing selections can be the glasses and the silverware - their designs, color and options are amazing. At more casual parties, disposable dishes, utensils and cups are always another option, and lately, economically sensitive recycled disposables are the preference of many.
No matter what creative idea your event planning takes you , remember to always have fun!
