There are multiple ways to incorporate texture and pattern into event décor. Some designers favor adding metallic texture, while others prefer using patterns. For this event, however, we’re showing you how to incorporate both. The resulting look is opulent, rich, and spectacular.

Long rectangular tables at this event feature Silver Birch table linen, a textured tablecloth with silver and bronze shades. 

We love the concept of a mirrored disk with the menu etched into it. What a unique way to print a menu!

The cases, charger plates, and candle holders in different mixed metallics play up the varied shades in the table linen perfectly. The unique patterns on the candle holders also add visual interest to the table design.

Combined, the varying textures and patterns of metallic silver, gold, copper, and bronze provide an opulent look.

Each place setting features the Luxe Silver Luster charger plate with a Silver Shantung napkin.

On the circular tables at this event, glimmering sequined table linen adds even more texture to this gorgeous look. 

To get this look, use the Mercury Sequin cap and sheath, as well as the Venus Sequin overlay.

In this unique table setting, sequined linen looks like glittering, shimmering coins. The flowers are simple yet elegant, letting the metallic shades take the full attention.

Even the vases tie in the metallic theme! Textured gold planters and smooth, shiny silver pots look beautiful on the tables. Simple white votives allow for an intimate atmosphere after the sun goes down.

Did you go full metallic for your event? Show us how you’ve done it!
