For the second year in a row, I’ve setup the tablescape for our office holiday luncheon. This year, with a whopping $20 budget, I was able to design a festive and inviting setup for 12 that came together at the last minute (literally). I purchased the plates, silverware, etc., the day before, but it wasn’t until that morning that I designed the printables.
Last year, the decor was silver wit hints of gold to keep a non-denominational theme. Unfortunately, I lost the designs soon after and had to re-design the placemats and just added menu cards to include in the place setting. The gold gift wrap paper served as a runner for the really long table in our conference room and white plastic tablecloths brightened the room and gave the setup a clean look. I also printed sheets with a silver and chevron pattern, and cut them one-inch-thick to use as napkin ring. This simple detail can be done with scrapbooking paper as well.
