Use these paper-perfect tips to beautifully decorate your table.
Position a stencil of your choice on the tablecloth so that the traced outline of the plate is roughly in the middle (we used a cut-out paper stencil from a scrapbooking shop). Spray a few layers of cream spray paint lightly over your stencil. Wait for the paint to dry then remove the stencil and move on to the next setting. Use a Tippex pen to write your guests’ names under the placemats at the bottom left-hand corner of the place setting.
Draw leaves down the centre of the tablecloth, keeping in mind that you will be placing your paper flowers over them and that you’ll want the leaves to show. Paint decoupage glue with an artist’s paintbrush over the pencil leaves. When the glue is dry, place gold leaf over it. Lightly brush away any excess gold leaf using a wide, soft paintbrush. Carefully erase visible pencil lines.
