Wish You Could Find The Perfect Piece For Your Tabletop?


Most people will plan out their home and decorating style to the T. Everything from where to put specific pieces, to what color or style theme they want to go with and what kinds of plates they want on their table. However, most of them don’t really realize how difficult it is to find tabletop accessories – especially if your family is like mine! Everyone always ends up in the kitchen or at the table for some reason! Sometimes people get “stage fright” that what they put on their table is going to be gawked at or made fun of.

Frankly, I don’t think you should care what anyone says about your tabletop accessories choices, but if you really feel like you need to stick to the normal also allowing yourself to add a small touch of panache here and there – then so be it! There are all kinds of choices when it comes to tabletop accessories for you normal folks (and for us funky folks too) such as beverage dispensers for water, wine decanters or other drinks, different kinds of napkins and matching rings and also different kinds of candle holders.

All of these options are going to come in different styles, shapes, sizes and colors. If you want to subdue the colors and shapes you can do this as well by picking out conventional options along with natural and light colors and shapes! For the funky people, you can choose all the same stuff, but you can choose some really crazy shapes and colors. This is really going to bring your table to people’s attention – so make sure you really want it!

Put Some Extra Zing On Your Tabletop!

You have to admit it, we live in a pretty awesome world. Things are ever changing, and it seems like with most products – you get so many choices and options and styles that it really seems like there is something for everyone.

I love this because I don’t think anyone should be counted out just because they have an old world style or a funky fresh style. Everyone should be able to “dress” their table up however they want to. And with all the products available today, no one should have to miss out on tabletop accessories for their home because of the sheer amount of styles!

You could even go with a theme if that suits you better than a style. When I was searching around online I found one magazine article where they were taking photos of different people’s tabletops. Some of them were theme-y while others had an actual style to them. Everything from Mediterranean and Hawaiian to various color themes like Baby Blue and Rosy Red. What do you like? Take your pick! I know for me, I like all the funky stuff, contemporary is what you would call it I suppose.

Take a look at this funky drink dispenser that you wouldn’t normally see on a table:

And believe me, there are tons of cool beverage dispensers in ALL kinds of shapes and

It’s all good with me because it all fits me personality oh so well! If it’s something different from you? Great! Visit www.ClassicHostess.com and take your pick!

The Best in Tabletop Accessories for your Home!

Most people will do whatever they want in their homes as far as styles, themes and decorations go. And good for them! They should be able to use whatever color tones and styles they want, because after all, if they are the ones that have to live there – they may as well enjoy it!

One of the most popular types of decorating is by using tabletop accessories – obviously these are accessories for your tabletops. They don’t necessarily need to be dining room tables though, they can pretty much be any table you have in your home such as a sofa table or a bedside table.

If you are considering the tabletop as in a dining room table, there are SO many options for you to choose from. Seriously, if you can’t find a style, theme or accessory that you like, then maybe you should change your decorating style! If I had to guess a number, I would say that you have about a million different options to choose from, maybe even more once you factor in different colors, shapes, sizes, etc.

I know that my style is all about funky stuff – it just makes me feel like my house, is really a home!

Tabletop Accessories Have Come A Long Way!

Retro Dinner?!
Are you still using your grandma’s tabletop accessories? It’s time for change!

I remember the days when on the family dining table we used to have only the few basic accessories. But over the years, thanks to companies and manufactures, this has changed dramatically!

Not only can you add all sorts of different styles and themes to your tabletops at home, but you can also choose from thousands of different options. This really is going to allow you to “decorate” your table and make it look like whatever YOU want.

You could completely customize the table by adding a new theme or style on different occasions, or keep it same for as long as you want. Either way, with tabletop accessories you will be sure to wow your guests and hear a few (or a lot) of compliments about this or that! Also, don’t forget about the silver, servers, dinnerware and napkin rings – these items specifically are known as the “piece de resistance”, the main focus of the table!

Usually if you have a hard time choosing tabletop accessories like beverage dispensers or candles, it’s also a good idea to start at the main focus of the table and move on from there! And don’t forget to visit www.ClassicHostess.com for unique tabletop accessories.
