Decorate a Cultural Holiday Event

As December approaches and we plan Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas celebrations, the question arises how we can best dress a celebration space to reflect both the spirit of the holiday as well as a message of hospitality.

For many planners, one of the answers is the judicious use of decorating fabrics in preparing for holiday events. On a large scale – as in covering ceilings and walls – you can use these fabrics in one or two of your holiday colors to soften room lines and to drop ceilings for a more intimate feel in cavernous spaces. You can also wind strips of these fabrics around beams and railings, fashion rope lines, and wrap favors in them.

A proven delightful decorating fabric is gossamer, a nonwoven material that is available in many colors including holiday favorites. Gossamer is quite gauzy and transparent by itself, but gains opacity and depth with layering so it is good for two-tone effects and backlighting. It has a superior drape but can also hold a bow. Cover tables in one of your holiday colors and make table runners from another – perhaps in a metallic gossamer version – that you can also use for tying around chair backs.

Solid color tableware can echo one or both of your table cover and runner colors or introduce a third color, perhaps silver or gold. Add a touch of glitter powder and special occasion centerpieces and you’re ready for a holiday event you’ll be proud of.

Party Table Basics

Whether you’re talking kitchen, folding, banquet or picnic, tables that reflect your event with distinction are a breeze with just a few fundamental decorating steps.

After you’ve chosen your theme, select a color scheme and work from there. Typically you’ll be working with a two- or three-color palette. Other times you may want to go monochromatic, and one way to do it is to work with two or three shades of the same color. Another is to select a single dominating color and choose an accent hue or two. You can create an especially dramatic effect by accenting one color with black, white, gold or silver. Think: navy with white, red with black, white with gold, etc.

Once the basic color scheme is worked out, you’ll be choosing materials based on theme, effects you want to achieve, ages of the partygoers and level of formality. For informal tables, bright gingham oilcloth, plastic table rolls, burlap or a patterned seamless or flat paper might fill the bill. More formal events might call for adding a matching or metallic skirting to a plastic or linen tablecloth, and/or use of taffeta, tulle, or fabrics that glimmer and shimmer.

If you are using a plain tablecloth, why not decorate it with fabric paint? Use a color to complement your theme to leave a special message at different angles all over the tablecloth. The same concept will also work with a plastic tablecover. As an alternative, stamp a fancy design onto the tablecloth with a pre-cut kitchen sponge.

Add table squares cut from colored cellophane for a whimsical look. Squares or other geometric shapes will add texture and depth to the appearance of the table.

If you have not had the pleasure of decorating with gossamer in the past, you are in for a treat. Gossamer is a wonderful, lightweight nonwoven material that creates fabulous decorating touches at a very reasonable price. It drapes, hangs and holds its shape beautifully. Ideas:

  • Swag gossamer on the edges of table skirting. Try twisting or braiding two colors together for a stunning look.
  • Cut gossamer into tabletop squares to place on the top of a plastic tablecover or cover the entire tablecover with an overlay of shimmery, sheer gossamer.

  • Gather the gossamer at the corners of the table, and tie with gossamer streamers, tassels, or satin ribbon.

  • One of the hottest trends today is to cover banquet or reception chairs with chair bows…and the trend tends to be quite costly! Do it yourself with gossamer! You can drape a piece of 19″ gossamer across the top of each chair back, and then tie a gossamer streamer bow around the back of the chair. The bows can be cut to any length, and even look lovely with tails trailing on the floor. The bows hold their shape just fine, and at a fraction of the cost of wired ribbon.

    Decorating Tables with Gossamer Material

    Deeptone GossamerChoose gossamer material for your table decorations! Its versatility and beauty make it a great accent for all your tables.

    Table Covers
    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 60” wide or 107” wide gossamer.

    Table Runners
    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.

    Table Skirting
    Use 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.

    Table Bows
    Once you have used gossamer to create your table skirt, you can create bows and swags around the edge of the table with 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.

    Chair Bows
    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.

    Chair Swags
    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.

    Napkin Bows
    Start by wrapping your cutlery in napkins. Tie the cutlery bundle with a small piece of gossamer streamer and create a bow. Choose your gossamer streamer in a color that complements your napkin color!

    Centerpiece Accents
    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.
