|Ideas for Dining Room Table Tablecloths & Runners|
|Half of the allure of a dish is in how it looks, so creating visual banquet decor is vital to serving a successful meal. Going all out to make the right statement doesn't have to involve redecorating the whole dining room. Use table runners and cloths in unexpected and creative ways to accent the flavors and textures of your food with mixtures of color and texture on your table.
Add Character to the Basics:
Buy solid tablecloths that complement the colors of the room, black tablecloths are a good choice, and add character by changing out the table runner. A simple runner in a contrasting solid color may be the perfect fit for a more casual meal, while a decorative runner with shine or metallic thread may be perfect for a formal dinner. Special runners with holiday themes give your table holiday flair without having to change out all of the linens.
Find a New Purpose:
Use a scarf, shawl, rug, sheet, sari, fabric or other textile as a tablecloth or runner for a bit of unexpected interest. Dishtowels or cloth napkins make great table runners. Place the napkins in a diagonal down the center of the table or place the dishtowels from end to end. Re-purposing fabric may bring new life to both the fabric and the room.
From the Window to the Table:
Buy an extra curtain and make a runner to tie the table to the window treatment without it being too much of a match. You could also use some of the curtain fabric to sew a border on solid color napkins to tie them to the runner.
Go for the Unexpected:
Use unexpected objects like wrapping or wallpaper, framed photographs, mirrors, cork or tiles as runners. Outdoor elements such as vines, branches, grass and shallow boxes or trays of stones could be used to create a casually elegant table. There is no rule that says that a table runner has to be made of fabric.
Keep It Simple:
Use simple tonal colors for table runners and cloths on a table that has boldly-patterned dinnerware or a lot of small plates and decorations. Keep the patterns muted or use solid colors so you do not confuse the eye--one focal point per table. People need to be able to feel relaxed so they can focus on the food and conversation too.

|Centerpiece Ideas To Make Your Wedding Special|
Are you getting married? Have you realized just how much everything is going to cost? It can be scary, but let me help you at least cut the budget down for your wedding centerpiece, with these unique centerpiece ideas.
The best way to cut the cost is to make them yourself. You could pay someone to make any of these but you will save a lot of money just doing them yourself. If you think you don't have time, then call family and friends to help. A great way to do it is buy the stuff and then have a girls day on Saturday where you feed them, or potluck it and everyone helps put the centerpieces together.
Now that you know how you will accomplish making your own, well getting help *cough cough.* Let's go over some of the do it yourself, crafty centerpiece ideas you need.
This first one is perfect for a dark set wedding. Any black, velvet red, midnight blue, or other deep color tablecloth would go fantastic with this. The best part about it is that it is extremely cheap. Just go outside and gather up anything you can find, wood, twigs, leaves, rocks, etc. Then spray them with metallic silver paint, If you can find one with glitter that would even be better.

If you are really looking to cut the budget then why not completely do away with the centerpiece? Okay so you can't just not have one, but why not put something there that may be somewhere else, like refreshments or desserts. I've seen couples who have put tiered platters in the center and then filled it with mini sandwiches or little bite size treats.
Another of many inexpensive centerpiece ideas would be mason jars. Yup use mason jars instead of vases, but don't just use the mason jar, class it up a bit. Vases are beautiful but can be a huge dent on you budget, but you can purchase boxes of mason jars for a fraction of the cost and then wrap them in tissue paper and fill them up. You can put flowers in them or get more creative with sand and a little shovel.
I hope these centerpiece ideas have helped you in cutting down that monstrous wedding budget of yours and congratulations on the upcoming nuptials.

|Choosing Silver for Your 25th Birthday Party Invitations|
Your 25th birthday should be celebrated in style, denoting a quarter century milestone. Steal a page from the 25th anniversary playbook and make silver your signature birthday color.
Why Choose Silver Birthday Party Invitations?
Silver is a versatile metal that is used on casual jewelry, as well as formal silverware, serving ware and picture frames. For these reasons, it is also a versatile color that can signify a formal or casual gathering, making it a perfect choice for 25th birthday party invitations.
Your 25th birthday is the quarter-century anniversary of your birth, and stretching the silver anniversary theme to include your birthday puts a fun twist on the theme.
Selecting 25th Birthday Party Invitations
If you decide to have a silver celebration, it's essential that you prominently display this on the 25th birthday party invitation. This will allow guests to dress appropriately, as well as perhaps silver-themed presents for your celebration.
Silver birthday party invitations do exist apart from anniversary invitations, ensuring that your choices will not be limited. You could choose to print your 25th birthday party invitations on silver paper with black lettering, mailed in a black envelope with silver foil lining, especially for a more formal gathering like a cocktail party. A casual silver birthday party invitation could have a colored background, such as light turquoise or dark green, combined with silver lettering and accents like a silver striped border.
Planning a Silvery 25th Birthday Bash
If you want to host a large party, you might consider an outdoor party or renting a venue to hold a large group. If you choose to host your party outdoors, this doesn't mean the party must be casual, depending on time of day and the setting you create. You could set up a sheer silver tent, either renting one or draping silver fabric over poles secured in the ground. Then set up tables beneath with silver tablecloths and silver candelabras holding ivory tapers. The party time should be in the evening, creating an elegant ambiance and the perfect setting for a delicious dinner beneath the stars.
If you decide to rent a venue, lay silver tablecloths, whether you'll have a sit-down meal, buffet, or drinks and dessert only, and use silver urns to house flower arrangements. If you'll have the party catered, request silver-rimmed plates to match your theme. To set the tone before the party, you could send a tri-fold 25th birthday party invitation with a glittering champagne glass on the front and words "25th birthday party" embossed across the front.
If you want to host a fun party with silver accents and your birthday takes place during a warm month, consider a pool party. You could sport a silver bathing suit, and if you'll play water games, could buy a silver volleyball to tie in with your theme. Your 25th birthday party invitations could be aqua or light blue and have pool party printed in bold silver lettering.
Don't think you have to wait for your 25th anniversary to host a silver-inspired party! Go ahead and apply it to your 25th birthday and send silver birthday party invitations to announce a stylish party guaranteed to shine.
|Colors That Add a Splash to Your Wedding Day|
Choosing a color scheme for your wedding can be a tough decision, and is often the source of great worry for brides to be. The color you pick will set the tone and style for the entire day, and while the majority of brides will stick with white or cream for their own dresses, choosing a color for the bridesmaids, flowers, ties for the groom and ushers and even tableware is not as easy as it seems.
There are many things to consider when deciding on the color theme, and the time of year will play a big role. Yellows and pinks are great for spring weddings, while traditionally dark green and reds are often better suited to a winter wedding.
The wedding venue should also be taken into consideration, and you should always choose colors that complement the setting, the carpet, walls and decoration. Also, think about what mood you want to create. Soft colors can evoke a traditional, romantic atmosphere, while bold colors can add a modern, dramatic twist.
Brides should also think about the color they want their bridesmaids to wear as this will influence the rest of the theme. While you may have your heart set on a pink wedding, if your bridesmaids aren't happy wearing this, or if it doesn't suit them, then you may have to reconsider.
When you have decided on the color of your wedding, what's the best way of working this into your big day? This is normally done through your choice of flowers and in your bridesmaids dresses, but you should also consider your table decorations, chair covers and favours. Think about the color of your wedding cake, or dress up a plain white cake with flowers or a ribbon in your chosen color. You could swap plain white napkins with colored versions, or go even further by choosing table cloths to match your scheme.
Wedding colors are like all fashions - what is hot one year may not be the following. In 2011 royal and cobalt blue were trending and this continued into last year with bright and deep blues popular and navy growing in popularity. Purple and red were also top trends in 2012, and black and white were favourable with brides.
So what about for 2013? Last year experts predicted grey and silver would be big in 2013, but when one of the leading wedding venues in Essex, asked its 2013/2014 brides what color their bridesmaids will be wearing, the overwhelming majority said pink and purple were the colors of choice. Blue was still popular, and neutral colors such as champagne, mink and cream were also trending.
Whatever scheme it is you choose, pick wisely. The color you decide on will influence your bridesmaids' dresses, napkins and even your wedding favours – go with what you feel comfortable with and use subtle splashes throughout your entire day.
