Below are some great ideas that you could use in order to give your table a beautiful look at a beautifully low price.
Tips For Decorating Your Table On A Budget
There is no need to buy a huge pile of tablecloths for every occasion. You could just have two or three pretty tablecloths, and along with these, a transparent, soft plastic tablecloth. Place your cloth one first and cover it with the plastic tablecloth. This will help your tablecloth last longer. You can be more innovative by adding designs to the soft plastic with art colors.
Keep The Centerpiece Simple
It is ideal to always keep the centerpiece simple so that it will not overwhelm the atmosphere, and so that it will blend in with the rest of your budget decoration. A simple centerpiece will also allow you to be able to see the person seated opposite you at the table. To create an inexpensive centerpiece, fill a punch bowl with an assortment of colorful gourds. You could spray paint the gourds to give it more variety – probably give it a glittery look with gold, silver, or bronze paint. Another option for an inexpensive centerpiece is to place fruits and vegetables in a pretty bowl and place it in the center.
Use A Single Color Theme
Use a single theme for your table décor. For example, if you wish to have a “green” theme, you could opt for varying shades of green for table napkins, cutlery, and other essentials. You could also choose to have a complimentary centerpiece of pears or green apples to add a final touch.
Get your kids to create simple origami in the form of flowers, which can be placed tastefully on your table. Napkins and tissues can also be arranged to resemble flowers, pilgrim hats, or turkeys, to create a more “interesting” décor. You could also look around your home for items that can be artistically converted to decorate your table.
Don’t clutter up your table by setting everything in one place. You may not have expensive dinnerware. However, your table will look beautiful if you arrange the simple things you have in a tasteful way. Never use huge vases or candlesticks that will stand out on their own (apart from blocking everyone else from view). Have unity of theme by arranging smaller objects along the whole length of the table.
