Even if you don’t have a huge budget to spend on décor, you can always add style to your tabletop by choosing a unique combination of china and flatware. Here are some of my favorite combinations:This combination was used for a stylish Christmas party I planned in just three weeks. The tabletop design was finished with a runner of moss, tons of candles, and gold ornaments. This design was for this wedding was based on the concept of “Zen Glamour.”The result is a sophisticated look that incorporates reflective surfaces, damask, green silk, and succulents in the floral arrangements.

And if you coordinate with your florist you might be able to take the floral mockup to your tabletop design session.Here’s but a small sample of the tons of china, glassware and flatware options available to rent for your wedding.

Personally, I like to use it at the bar serving the signature drink. All the glasses lined up on the bar in the same color looks pretty and creates instant drama at the bar.
