In some ways, chargers added to a place setting is like the frosting on a cake. They enhance the entire table.
It’s true. Chargers are not a necessary element in a tablescape, but they add decorative elements like color, texture or pattern.
BBJ has introduced five new designs that are sure to create a special kind of excitement for your special event: Two have a clear, hammered textured body with edges lavishly dripping with gold or silver. A second overall design is available in three different colorways, each one unique and appealing.
Our “go to” charger for regal looks is this elegant gold-edge. Here, the metallic plays a background note along with golden flatware and a simple metal goblet. Subtle cream patterned linen, pale taupe napkins and classic china and glassware play the melody. The single high note is the glorious color of the exceptionally beautiful flowers.
Teamed with textured smoky grey linen, the shiny countenance of this embellished charger acts as counterpoint to casually elegant gold dotted napkins, unmatched brass candlesticks, classic dinner plates and unadorned crystal. A vibrant, unexpected orchid adorns each setting, complementing the more traditional floral centerpiece.
Add lavender to a basically warm-toned monochromatic scheme highlighted by gold, and you have a decidedly “uptown” expression. Note how the centerpiece adds depth of tone and becomes the reason behind the addition of a single hue.
Ribbon Rose Gold
The slightly spunky personality of rose gold is the perfect way to invoke a bit of edgy drama at a spring or summer event. Picture it with ripe peach linen or a bright floral pattern. Or dream of understated moss green to anchor its warm glow. Play up its warm glow with weathered copper and gray-green desert plants, or recall seaside vibe with bleached wood, sea glass and dune grass.
This is the pattern destined to take special events through the coming seasons with unequaled style. Versatility is its middle name; play it up with royal blue or black & white stripes for formal summer events. As autumn turns cooler, add silver ribbons to traditional greens and golds; then heighten the appeal of ice blue and white for winter celebrations.
We know you’ll find myriad other reasons to love these new BBJ chargers. Let us know your favorites!
