4. Fine Dining Menu
There's something so chic about having a menu at your party table. For this setting, we printed a menu from a color printer and glued construction paper to the back of it to make it thicker. Next, we made a stand by gluing the menu between two corks.
More Ways to Glam Up Your Table
- Purchase extra-wide ribbon with an intricate pattern at a crafts store. Cut long pieces to run along your table, and place plates, silverware, and wineglasses on top of the ribbon.
- For a dazzling centerpiece, fill a tiered tray with tea lights.
- Find glass-bead bracelets at a flea market or second-hand jewelry shop to use as napkin rings.
- Spread a cotton cloth on a table; sprinkle flower petals on top. Lay swaths of organza or tulle over the entire table.
