when… the tablecloth is stained
Turn to a drop cloth (or a curtain panel) for last-minute decor. Scalloped details instantly transform an ordinary piece of linen into a simply elegant table cover.
when… you've run out of place cards
Jot down the names of guests on edible goodies with removable exteriors.
when… you can't find the candleholders
Floating tealights make for the best centerpieces, lending an intimate touch to the space.
when… you're out of mixers
Sugnature drink? Oh, right. That's what we forgot. Use frozen fruit or edible florals, in lieu of ice cubes, for a colorful twist.

Take a more simple approach. A cluster of garden herbs lend a rustic (and equally fragrant!) touch to the table.
when…your bowls aren't big enough
Shallow vases can hold a slew of toppings for an impromptu condiment bar.
when… you can't find a vase
A delicate teacup is the perfect alternative.
