Take Your Event Decor from Blah to Gorgeous in 4 Simple Ways

Have you ever walked into a reception or party excited to see the hosts personality entrenched in the decor only to see a bare room with standard amenities? Your thoughts probably were...nothing. More than likely, there was nothing in the decor that caught your eye or left you speechless.

Many people shy away from adding style to their decor because they feel it is too pricey or they have a fear of doing "too much." You can fancy up your decor without breaking the bank or risking simplicity. Here are 4 decor ideas to take your big event a step above all others and leave your guests in awe:
1. Lighting Design- Lighting is all the rave in event design because of its impact. It can add drastic effects to decor. Lighting can be as simple (a few uplights around the room) or complex (a complete wash of color) as you would like for it to be.View our article below on lighting design to see which effect will work best for your event.

2. Centerpieces with Pizazz- Traditional centerpieces are typically a floral arrangement in blooms of various colors neatly placed in the center of the table. Nowadays, there are many non floral centerpieces that can make a drastic impact on your event and set it apart from the norm. From rented lamps, feathers, candles and birch, these centerpieces will give your guests a glimpse of your personality and style.

3. Table Accents and Linens: Selecting your decor truly starts with your table linens and accents such as napkins and chargers. The standard white table linens and basic banquet chairs are now considered a bore. Spice things up by adding colored linens to bring out your color scheme. To add even more drama, choose linens with fabric that compliments your venue and brings out the ambiance. For an elegant and sophisticated affair, choose satin or crushed taffeta linens. For a swanky, look choose pinched taffeta.

Don't want to pay for a full table cloth? Add an overlay instead. An overlay is a smaller version of a table cloth that drapes over the cloth. It is less than half the cost of a table linen yet can provide the same effect.

For a touch of glam, add chargers to your table. Such a small addition can have a powerful impact.

Purchasing Linens from Internet Only Company or Local Store

I recently received a call from a bride requesting a price quote for table linens, napkins, and chair covers for her wedding. I gave her the information that she requested. She compared our prices to the that of several Internet based businesses. She then made the choice to go with an Internet based company because the costs were less. Three days before her wedding, the bride called me to say her order arrived from the Internet based company filled with wrinkles from shipping. At that point, her choices were to 1. spend the next 2-3 days before her wedding ironing the linens, 2. go with the linens in their current condition and hope the wrinkles go unnoticed by her guests and still pull off the same affect or 3. pay twice for her linens by ordering an additional set from a local company.
Unfortunately, this is a scenario that happens quite often to many consumers. They simply do not think to ask if the linens will arrive wrinkle free or if the linens will suffer from wrinkles after shipping. Typically, when ordering products from a local company such as ours, Le Fabuleux Events, the linens are pressed before pick up/delivery and do not incur any additional damage from being smushed into a box for shipping. So before you place your next order from an Internet based firm, make sure you get the answers you need to make the best decision for you.
