With numerous details that go into planning your wedding or event, it can be easy to overlook or altogether forget important items. We get it! That’s why we’re here to help you make sure nothing is overlooked for your big event.

When running through your checklist, make sure you don’t forget these four specialty tables. Whether you plan on incorporating all or none or even more of these, with accent linens or without, we’re here to give you the rundown of what these specialty tables are and why hosts love them!

Gift Table

This one might speak for itself, but it’s still best to review your options. Some hosts love the idea of dedicating a whole table for cards and gifts that their guests will be brining along. Others prefer to leave a card box on another specialty table, such as the memory table or escort card table. We’ve also seen life-size and free-standing mailboxes to collect cards and well wishes. No way is the right way, but this is one specialty table you don’t want to forget!

Memory Table

Whether filling the table with your own memories or remembering loved ones who have passed or putting together a display of both, a memory table is THE specialty table that truly speaks volumes to tell your story. It is a classic way to bring back cherished memories with friends, family or people you are honoring or sharing the event with. Memory tables don’t need to be full of photos but can also present items that also hold precious moments and significant meaning.

Cake Table

Depending on your event, a cake table and/or dessert tables are most likely high up on the must-have list as well. Cake tables are especially significant for weddings, showers, birthdays, graduations and more! The symbolism of a bride and groom cutting into their cake is a classic tradition that many love to incorporate into their day. Others see their cake as artwork and therefore highlighting and showcasing the cake can become a display or décor item all on its own.

Escort Card Table

From cards to boards to pins and other creative ideas, making sure guests find their way to their seats is a necessity. No matter how you present the invitation to sit down, relax, eat, drink and be merry, this is another specialty table that you don’t want to miss. Tapping into your own original imagination to come up with and create a more exciting, fun or eye-catching display can also be the perfect avenue to incorporate your unique style and personality.
