Once you’ve made your prom location gorgeous, don’t let your decorations fall flat by neglecting your tables. Tables are an important part of the prom set-up. Students will spend time there talking, resting from all the dancing, and eating if you have a formal dinner as part of your event. Choose gossamer fabric for your table decorations! Its versatility and beauty make it a great accent for all your tables.
Create unique table covers with gossamer. Choose two different colors and layer one over the other or use patterned gossamer over a single color gossamer. Depending on the size of your table, you will either want to use our 60” wide or 107” wide gossamer.
Our 19” gossamer makes gorgeous table runners. Start by covering your entire table with a gossamer table cover (see above). Then, choose a different color, or a patterned gossamer for your table runner.
Use our 60” wide gossamer to create your table skirting. You can either create a “flat” skirt, or bunch it at the top for a different effect. Secure the gossamer with double-sided tape and trim to your desired length.
Once you have used gossamer to create your table skirt, you can create bows and swags around the edge of the table with our 19” gossamer. Swag the gossamer around the edge of the table, securing it with double-sided tape every 12”. Add a gossamer bow at the top of each swag with double-sided tape or a small pin.
Drape two pieces of 60” gossamer across the top of each chair back, and then tie a 60” gossamer bow around the back of the chair. The bows can be cut to any desired length. For a romantic look, let the bow tails hang down to the floor.
If you choose not to create a bow on your chairs, then you can opt to add a fun swag to each chair. Cut an 8-9’ piece of 19” gossamer. Attach the gossamer to both corners on the back of the chair. Then let the gossamer hang loosely in the middle to create the swag and “puddle” it on each side of the chair.
Start by wrapping your cutlery in napkins. Tie the cutlery bundle with a small piece of gossamer streamers and create a bow. Choose your gossamer streamer in a color that complements your napkin color!
Puddle some gossamer around your centerpiece to give your table some extra pizzazz! (Do not use gossamer around candles.)
Basket & Bowl Liners
Line baskets and bowls with gossamer to serve dry foods like chips, pretzels, rolls etc. Choose a patterned gossamer or solid color to match your party theme.
