A couple of weeks ago we shared a video with you created by The Wedding Present Company and Chenai Bukutu of ByChenai Events. It explained all the reasons that Chenai advises her clients to have a gift list. It was really useful so make sure you go and watch that if you haven't seen it already. Today we're sharing with you four different tablescapes that Chenai created with The Wedding Present Company to show you how to use your wedding gifts at home. You've unboxed all the potential but how can you make the best use of all your fancy new stuff? Keep reading for four ways of using your tableware at home. They're also ideas that can be used in your wedding too. What better place to have a trial run of the things you love than at the biggest dinner party you'll ever throw.
You know how people save their fancy fine china for best? Why? Get it out every weekend we say! Chenai shows you how to style your fine china wedding gifts for every occasion. You know, even just for a Tuesady night. Mix cut glassware with rich linens and delicate china and cutlery. Compliment your fresh, light linens with darker accents, such as candles.
If your home style is more casual then you could add some of these ideas for your wedding gift list. Simple white linen with classic cutlery and a more muted colour palette. Mix the colour of your glassware to add texture and depth and you can add in wooden elements to your table set up for a softer aesthetic.
You can add all of these wedding gifts to your wedding gift list with The Wedding Present Company. If you're not quite ready to compile a gift list yet then you can save any of the images to your gift list Pinterest board and also to your table decor boards because there is so much here you can implement into your day. Thanks to The Wedding Present Company and Chenai for sharing these great ideas with us.
