Do you have your own china, glassware, or flatware but not enough to have complete matching place settings for the number of guests at your party? Don’t be afraid to get creative and mix and match your own pieces with some rental items. By renting what you don’t have through The Alleen Company, you can set your table to accommodate any number of guests. Plus, you can add a special touch to the party by incorporating vintage pieces from your home AND save money in the process! Professional tip: try mixing in your own items every other place setting. You don’t have to use every item from your own set. For example, our showroom table is using our white classic china with vintage red salad bowls and coffee cups at every other place setting. Combining your own pieces with ours can add color and texture, making your tables stand out!
You can also be resourceful by using pieces differently than what they were originally designed for. Here are some fun ideas that you can try at home that can help transform your table(s). One way to add pizazz to your table top is to turn any type of glass upside down and use it as a candle holder. Another unique idea is to use a traditional glass as a vase. Add fresh flowers to your new vase for a nice touch! Making your own center piece is another great do it yourself option. There are tons of easy Pinterest ideas that use in home products like picture frames, tall candle holders, mason jars, beads, ribbon, and other vases to create a one of a kind center piece. Making your own centerpieces gives you another opportunity to add a personal touch.
