Chic Cocktail Tables

— Reception Decor Trends

For an elegantly chic post-ceremony cocktail hour or a stand up style event, cocktail tables are a necessary functional decor element that are often left as an after thought when planning an event. 

Be bold and imaginative when selecting tables that compliment the rest of the space. Cocktail tables are not only a practical option for guests to place their drinks, they also can offer a beautiful surface for your guests to use for photographic moments during your event. The cocktail table should always be considered as a feature to accentuate the overall aesthetic of your event. 

For a sophisticated event, seek out high polished brass or intriguingly veined marble to add a refined elegance to a space. Style atop tall, sleek vases with bloom displays that cascade down onto the tabletop, some spilling off the table for drama. Clustered cathedral candles of variegated heights burning down throughout the night can add atmosphere to a space with their beautiful ambient glow. 

Striking matte black round tables with interesting geometric or silhouette-like legs, loan themselves to the minimalist style event. This particular style table can speak for itself, clustered in groups around an event space of varying heights can create interesting focal points where minimal styling is preferred. 

For a bohemian luxe event, consider eye catching agate patterned tabletops that will instantly be a talking point amongst your guests. Styled alone or with crystals in faceted hurricanes create interesting vignettes within a setting.
