Bright colors, combining fabrics, and accents galore; bold decor done correctly can be a dream come true. Understanding The Laws of Creating Bold Decor will give you the confidence to put together the gorgeous decor you deserve.
1. Don’t fear bright colors
First do quick search of Pinterest with your proposed colors as the keywords. A search of Pinterest will give you ideas of how other’s have decorated past events with the color palette you plan to use. While there is nothing wrong with a little innovation, keep in mind if no one else has the colors you have chosen there may be a reason.
2. Never shy away from textured linens

- Rosette satin is a great go-to material for adding texture.
3. Don’t fear combining fabrics
Another door opens when you combine basic linens (such as satin or polyester) with a sequined or textured linens! While it’s tempting to continue using the same fabrics throughout your event, combining fabrics is the key to taking your decor to the next level. The cardinal rule of combining fabrics is that they must stay within your color palette. Much as you may be in love with a tablecloth that almost matches your color theme, if it isn’t a perfect match it’s better to save it for another event.
4. Always be sure your decor is functional
The biggest decorating mistake is ignoring the needs of your guests; you must anticipate what decorative details may not be worth becoming bothersome. Due to the chance of loose linens creating trip or spill hazards, always be sure your linens are not dragging the floor. Centerpieces should not obstruct the reach of dining items, and table runners or overlays should never be uneven or bunched. As a result of keeping the needs of your guests in mind, your bold decor will be functional and beautiful!
