1~ Use sparkly candles to add a little bling to your table
Sparkly, glitter candles are probably the most obvious way to add bling to your table setting. After all, they will easily be the first thing your guests see on your table.
Candles with glitter on the outside or within are SO sparkly on there own. And then when you light the candle = double the sparkle! The candle light bounces off the glitter and really makes the table shine.
Did you know that there are flameless ones, too? Sweet!!
2~ Metallic charger plates will add shine to the tablescape
Adding metallic charger plates to your table setting is a simple and understated way to add shine to your table setting.
That gold, silver, or bronze charger will peek out from under your dinner plates. They will add a little something extra that your guests might not notice and they will definitely elevate the look of your tablescape.
Metallic chargers will immediately add a sense of elegance to any table setting. After all, metal is naturally shiny. So using metallic chargers is an easy way to add a little bling.
3~ Shiny baubles are wonderful for a sparkly tablescape
Ya gotta love shiny baubles of any kind. They just add that special bling to your table.
They can be glass marbles, larger shiny beads, or fake diamonds. Anything that catches and reflects the light.
Shiny baubles are typically small filler items on your tablescape. Either scattered around the table or placed inside clear glass containers.
They are great at accenting larger focal pieces on your table, while also adding the bling you are wanting.
4~ Metallic ribbon adds shine
There are TONS of options for metallic ribbons. You can find them in every metallic color and a variety of metallic shades as well. And then, there are SO many different ribbon widths from narrow to wide.
You can tie your place setting up in a beautiful sparkly metallic bow, or wind gold ribbon along the center of your table, or use it within your centerpiece.
You can’t go wrong with using metallic ribbon on your table for adding shine or sparkle.
5~ Gold, silver or bronze candle holders
Tall metallic taper candle holders are everywhere. When you walk into any store you will see them. They are a great way to add bling to your tabletop.
Whether you are using gold or silver candle holders, the sparkle from them will add a little bling to your table. Then to really make your table shine ~ use glitter or metallic candles with them.
Now that’s a WOW factor!
6~ Table linens with sequins are an easy way to add bling to your table
Sequins! By adding anything with sequins to your table, you will immediately add glitz and bling to your table.
The great thing about sequins is how they catch the light and make everything sparkle. What better way to add glam to your table setting?
Find placemats, a table runner, or even a tablecloth with sequins and your table will immediately become more elegant ~ and blingy!
7~ Fairy lights on your table are a subtle way to add sparkle
You’ve seen or heard of “fairy lights”, right? Those little sparkly string of lights on a thin copper wire. Typically they’re battery-operated. There are ones you can plug in, but you wouldn’t use those on your dining table.
For your tablescape, you will want the battery-operated fairy lights. Because you can find a way to hide the battery pack within the centerpiece.
Wind the fairy lights throughout your centerpiece, or inside clear containers, or under your tablescape greenery. The lights will peak out and provide a soft and subtle sparkle to your table.
I love the soft warm white fairy lights, but they also are available in a variety of colors, or even a cool white, if you prefer.
Such a fun way to add bling to your table!
Now that you know of 7 ways to add bling to your table, which one (or ones) are you going to use? Are you going to be subtle with your sparkly table, or are you going to be over-the-top with a glitz and glam table setting?
No matter how much bling you add to your table ~ it will be FAB!
