When you plan a black-tie event, there are some things that guests will likely expect: formal dress, a lavish venue, and overall luxury. With that luxury comes an almost obsessive amount of attention to detail, with no stone unturned. If you’re planning a black-tie event, and want to really wow your guests, these are five things to consider ensuring that lavishness permeates throughout the event.

Chargers

When guests approach their tables, their eyes immediately glance down to their plates. Chargers will not only heighten the luxurious tone of your event but can also complement your chosen color scheme.

Patterned Linen

Nothing exudes elegance like luxurious textured linen. Guests will be awed by their table’s intricate patterns and brilliant hues. Pair with a solid-colored napkin, and your tablescape will effortlessly steal the show and leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Menu Cards

Menu cards add another touch of upscale allure. At a black-tie event, menu cards are essential to keep guests enticed as it will remind them what will be served and excite them for what’s to come. Tip: a simple menu fold will help accentuate your menu card without being the highlight of the table.

Bar Decor

Finally, this is a minor detail, but one that is often ignored. Many venue bars lack proper attention when it comes to décor because they are mostly utilitarian fixtures. At a black-tie event, taking steps to include the bar shows expert-level attention to detail. Simply draping matching linen used on the event tables over the bar can help tie the whole event together.
