Add Some Pattern

We've always had a thing for south asian textiles and prints and go a little crazy when we see all the variety there is (especially enjoy bargaining for textiles with shopkeepers when in the motherland - their verbal sparring is quite impressive).

Incorporating textiles onto your tabletop is an easy way to make a statement. Add some prints as a runner, overlay or even a simple napkin and it will instantly brighten up a party.

Since renting tablecloths and overlays can get expensive, buying your own fabric to pretty up simple tablecovers is not a bad idea, and it's not that difficult either.

We did this for a family mehndi over the summer and all it involved was some fabric, some scissors, and a lovely mother willing to sew the hems!!

(Lovely mothers are always a bonus right!)
