Hey, party peeps! I’m continuing today with my Tablescape Design Series where I share with you how to style a dining table 5 different ways for 5 different party themes using solid colored tableware. Today it’s, HOW TO STYLE A MODERN GOLD PINEAPPLE PARTY TABLESCAPE! In my last post, I showed you how to style a table using metallic silver. Today I’m going to show you how to use metallic gold.
This Modern Gold Pineapple Party Tablescape combines two of the hottest new design trends—gold and pineapples. I love how well these pair together. Recreate this stunning Modern Gold Pineapple Party Tablescape year round with my Girlfriend Tips and an online shopping list below with prices to make this super easy to do yourself.
1. GIRLFRIEND TIP: START WITH METALLIC GOLD & WHITE PARTYWARE!
To give this table a modern feel, pair bright white with metallic gold partyware. Keep your design with only these two colors. The finished look is high-end and modern. Don’t forget to use disposable gold metallic cutlery. They look amazing and are a fraction of the cost of buying actual gold tone cutlery. I mean, REALLY more affordable y’all!
I wanted to use a shorter drinking glass so that the pineapple decorations down the center of the table were easily seen and not blocked by a tall glass.
2. GIRLFRIEND TIP: ADD PATTERNED METALLIC GOLD CHARGERS TO YOUR PLACE SETTING!
To keep your place setting from looking too flat, add patterned metallic gold chargers under your solid colored plates. These gold metallic chargers have a criss-cross pattern on them that reminds me of the outside of a pineapple. They were perfect and added just the right amount of shine and pattern under the plain plates to jazz up the place setting.
3. GIRLFRIEND TIP: ADD A CLEAR PINEAPPLE FAVOR BOX ON TOP OF YOUR PLATES!
Add a clear pineapple favor box on top of your plates to add some visual interest. These pineapple favor boxes from Oriental Trading come in two parts, making it easy to only use one side face down on the plates so they sit flat.
4. GIRLFRIEND TIP: USE GOLD SPRAY PAINT TO CREATE MATCHING DECOR ITEMS!
Let’s just face it. Sometimes we can’t find items that we want to use in the colors that match our party table. In those cases, I simply coat them with spray paint in the color to match. Here, I wanted to use gold pineapples in my table decorations, but couldn’t find any that were in my budget. They were around $10-15 each. I found ceramic pineapple drink tumblers from Oriental Trading that were affordable, but they were yellow and green! NOT the color I wanted, so I spray painted them to match! How fabulous are these? At $12.99 for 4 of them, I was able to get 4 ceramic gold pineapple decorations for $3.25 each! NOW, that’s a tip that I can get with! Add some height and place a few on candle pedestals.
5. GIRLFRIEND TIP: ADD MATCHING DECORATIONS YOU ALREADY OWN!
I already have these fabulous white and gold pineapple ceramic decorations, gold pineapple candles, gold terrariums and gold metal leaves in my office, so I simply placed these down the table and now have a centerpiece that cost me nothing.
6. GIRLFRIEND TIP: SAVE MONEY AND USE A SEQUIN RUNNER INSTEAD OF A FULL SEQUIN TABLECLOTH!
Y’all know I love me some sparkle! I just love the look that sequin tablecloths give my party tables, but, I’m not going to lie, they are expensive! A more affordable option is use a sequin runner instead. You still get the sparkly high end look of sequin in your table design at a fraction of the cost of using a full sequin tablecloth.
