For our Knight's Tale table décor, we set up one large banquet table with wooden chairs. You may also like to use benches, and a round table would be the ultimate! If your table is wooden you may want to leave it bear or as ours was metal we covered it in hessian. Echo the surface in your arrangements by filling silver lace edged glass votives with little bushels of wheat.
WINES AND VINES CENTREPIECES
Burnished silver vases and pitchers found in flea markets filled with a few burgundy flower heads make for a fine arrangement. Furthermore, lengths of ivy trailing down the table centre or around the chairs are any easy and inexpensive addition.
Be sure to dim the overhead lights, and the warm glow from antique candelabras, candleholders and votives will easily recreate the banquet and ballrooms of days of old. Make custom candle votives by printing out this paper lampshade and placing over a wine glass with a lit tea light inside.
THE MIDAS TOUCH
With a touch of gold spray paint transform plastic fruit and trinkets into treasure. Display these on tiered silver tea trays amoung real red grapes and miniature bread rolls. At each place setting set a gold charger plate and as far as possible go for gold (paper) plates, cutlery and napkins.
