Tip 1: Choose a format
There are several formats of crochet centerpieces. Among them, the main ones are round, oval, square and rectangular. In addition to these basic shapes, there are also these table cloths in very different formats, such as flower and spiral shapes.
Basically, the choice of the shape of the crochet centerpiece will depend on the table or even on the person’s taste. See the tips below.
Round table centers are commonly used on round tables. But there are also those who use them on rectangular or square tables as well.
Oval table centers go well on both round and rectangular tables. On the square tables, more attention should be paid. This is because this towel format can be very large on the square table, at the risk of becoming disproportionate.
Square table centers are more symmetrical on tables also in square format. In addition, they are super elegant on rectangular tables, especially when used inverted, forming a rhombus.
For those who love flowers, nothing better than a graceful centerpiece in this format.
A variation of table centers are table runners. Because they are more extensive, going from one side of the table to the other, they give the impression that the table is bigger than it really is. Therefore, they are ideal for decorating the entire length of the rectangular tables, especially on special lunch and dinner days.
Tip 2: Set the size
As it is a table centerpiece, as the name implies, it should stand out in the central part of the furniture. Therefore, the centerpiece must be proportional to the size of the table to be decorated. That is, it should not be too big or too small on the table.
Tip 3: Select colors
The choice of colors is something very personal. There are colors that match the decor of the environment as a whole. Just as there are those who use other criteria, such as the preferred color, or even a very beautiful crochet thread that you have saved.
