Rose Floral Centerpiece designed in a Wooden Box- wrapped with ribbon and 'Blinged' Out in Blue Diamond Wrap all the way around the Box - This is How We Dazzle & just one of our many ways to Design
6 Ways to Make Your Table Setting Dazzle
1. Use Plate Chargers to Dress Up Your Table
2. Use Cloth Napkins or Satin Napkins
3. Double your napkins using different colors
4. Use Colored Stemware whenever possible
5. Use Napkin Rings that Pop in Color or
have an ornament affixed to the top
6. Elevate Your Centerpiece by placing it on
top of a Clear Cake Plate or a tall vase
turned upside down, use a large Bubble
Bowl, or put the Centerpiece on a plate
and balance it on top of 3 or 4 vases or
candlestick holders formed in a triangle
Here are a few samples below
Here is A Cloth Napkin Doubled with Yellow & Orange and the ornament affixed to the top of it is a silk flower glued to a plain natural colored napking ring
See How this Gold Plate Charger underneath the Dinner Plate and Saucer makes the China Pattern Pop
Use Colored Stemware whenever possible, it creates ambiance and a more pulled together look and feel
Here In Class, I'm showing you how to elevate your centerpieces on a very tall vase as to not abstruct the view of the guest - The vase does not have to be this tall, it can be set on top a cake plate or a medium size vase turned upside down - a bubble bowl, a sturdy box draped with fabric, you can use a punch bowl, a gumbo pot, and drape with fabric, Get the idea?
You'll learn all this and so much more in my Table Setting Class...It's only $79, for floral designs techniques, theme table settings, and more...Register Now!

How to Set A Spectacular Table
Decide what kind of ambiance you want to create for your guest. How impressionable do you want your table set; what kind of experience do you want you guest to feel and what do you want them to remember most about your table ? Glamour... Adventure...The Jewels of the Table or the Crown itself?
The occasion will help you determine if you want to 'theme' the table or design with Elaborate Elegance.
Decide on a color scheme. Creams and gold are elegant.They're also Safe! Explore with various themes and colors. Spectacular isn't safe...it's WOW. It's OMG look at this room!!! Is that a !!!!!!!!. It's ...No she did'nt!
Design your table to tell a story and be part of your entertainment. If you just returned from a fabulous trip to Africa, you'll want your guest to share in your adventure! An elephant, lion, or tiger will make a fabulous centerpiece...this is what I consider the Crown of the Table.
Creating a Spectacular Tabletop is similar to dressing for a Red Carpet Night in Hollywood. Now, it's time to collect and assemble your most elegant accessories; what I consider the Jewels of the Table. China, glasses, place cards, napkins and napkin rings, plate chargers, candles, etc., and alas your centerpiece (Crown of the Table)
Remember, your table is telling a story, your centerpiece could be an exquisite floral arrangement sitting high atop a four foot vase, a treasure chest filled with gold coins, fabulous lamp, table top chandelier, a fancy parasol expending from the ceiling upside down embellished with flowers. It must be Spectacular and intimate with all the Jewels of the Table
Pay meticulous attention to the details. Think Concept! What story is your table going to tell? Napkin rings should Pop in color and theme or be dazzling in design like rhinestones, or an exquisite broach, embellished wired ribbon, or an ornament that ties in with your theme.
Chair covers and linens should be elegant in fabrics, rich in textures and colors. Whenever possible and appropiate, use stemware of color rathe than clear.
Carry your theme or its colors through out your design. Use lighting to set the mood, candles or battery operated lights (they come in an array of colors and they can be dropped into a vase of water and will last for hours.
Don't settle for tradition. You're the Designer...it's OK to break the rules... We're setting a Spectacular Table! Look through books, magazines of art, fashion, and interior design. If you see a terrific centerpiece in a Bridal Magazine, you know the kind that's really lavish and outlandish...go for it!
Modest budget? Challenging, yes... but not impossible. You Must Think Outside the Box! Build your table by incorporating items from within your home. Are you a collector of butterflies..sea shells, tea pots, candles ...what's your favorite sport, tv soap, game show, hobby, city or Country? With a little imagination, research, and ingenuity, you can build a fabulous table top setting, just think Spectacular!
Let me show you how to set a Spectacular Tabletop Design for your next party or special event! Call or email Linda Patterson at Dazzle & Design today. Call me at 310-774-6537 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
" I believe your guest should feel the extravagance of the meal by dining at a table of Exquisite Glamour and embraced with Opulence. The room should be Rich in Atmosphere, every view should be spectacular and the room should be Glorious upon entrance" Linda Patterson
