One of my favorite boards on Pinterest is the one I call “Random Party Ideas.” This is where I store fab ideas that I don’t have a party for. One day, I hope to find homes for all these amazing ideas! Maybe you can use some of these ideas for making your tables pretty. (And please be sure to give credit to the original source when you do.)
