When a bountiful parcel arrived in the office at the start of the week containing some of the gorgeous products used in this blog (namely the vintage white heart namecards) I thought I would look again at white and silver table decorations as it is such a winning combination and there are so many ways you can use these colours on your special occasion tables…
I’ve started by using white table linen overlaid with a white organza table runner, which adds a subtle sheen across the table. I’ve used a silver candelabra and simply twisted some garden ivy around the stem – a very quick, easy and cost efficient way of decorating your centrepieces. Not having a floral centrepiece, I thought it would be nice to use a delicate (almost fluffy) flower on each napkin, tied simply with some organza ribbon.
Instead of using favourboxes, I’ve given each guest a lottery ticket – I find that these are a really fun and engaging gift for your guests… Hopefully any major winners will be happy to treat you to a meal out (at least!) after your special day.
I’ve introduced hints of silver by using silver ribbons and organza petals in the wine glasses, these get scattered across the table before drinking commences adding a nice bit of extra decoration to your tables.
These fabulous cake boxes were amongst the goodies, I think they’re great as it ensures all your guests get to take some cake home (which, being an avid consumer of cake I think is very important!. Stack up boxes of cake next to your guestbook, reminding people to help themselves after they’ve left you a message.

This table was inspired by the beautiful cala lily. It is such an elegant flower and you only really need a few to make a statement. I also scattered some silver paper heart confetti around the centre of the table to draw more focus to the gorgeous flowers.
I’ve wanted to create a very simple, almost minimalist table so to reduce cutlery clutter, I’ve rolled knives and forks in each guests napkin and tied it in a parcel style bow, finished off with a silver heart sparkler. I’ve also tied nametags to each wine glass in a matching silver ribbon.
Instead of giving each guest an individual favour, I’ve filled a few tin pails with chocolates for guests to share with a coffee after the meal. I think the overspill of chocolates onto the table also looks quite nice.
Well, that’s white and silver table decorations more than covered for now (well until the next batch of lovely new goodies arrives in the office). Hopefully we’ve given you some ideas on how to get started decorating your tables…!
