Clinton Kelly is all about making every experience the best it can be. So when it comes to jazzing up your home for a party, special occasion or just for your own enjoyment, he's got plenty of ideas. And inexpensive ones at that. Here are five ways to make your tabletops memorable.
-Use Fabric as Table Runner: When dressing a table, select a pattern, which sets the color pallette. You can use an old tablecloth, a quilt or go to your local fabric store. Fabric costs anywhere from five dollars up. Clinton tip: To make the edges look neat and avoid sewing, use iron on tape.
-Repurpose Wine Bottles as Candle Holders: After you are done with the booze, clean the bottle, tear off the label and spray paint the bottle to provide an interesting and elegant candle holder. Spray paint costs less than five dollars!
-Use Small Mirror as Cheeseboard/Appetizer Tray: It's unique and stylish, and makes your spread look twice the size.
-Paint Gourds Black: Gourds only cost about a dollar, and when painted, make for an interesting decorative item. Clinton tip: Use high gloss paint to make gourds shine.
-Use Multiple Vases for Flowers: Why stick to one boring vase? Spread an arrangement amongst multiple, different vases for a one-of-a-kind look.
