With 2019 quickly approaching, we are already taking notes for next year’s hottest trends in decor at reception venues in Dallas. Check out these reception details that we think will be a big hit in the new year.

Black accents

Expect to see a shift towards stark contrast with black accents on tablescapes from candles to flat ware.

Traditional Modern

Modern, clean design will never go out of a fashion but with such a strong emphasis on what’s trending many couples are looking to find inspiration in traditional elements again. Balancing traditional and contemporary pieces is what makes a tablescape feel rich in design.

Velvet and Lucite

This year we saw lucite become a chic choice for everything from dinnerware to seating but with all the transparency, tablescapes are in need of more texture from other elements. Velvet is a great way to incorporate subtle texture and we expect to start seeing it used more frequently in the new year.


Monogrammed napkins are emerging as the perfect personal touch for your wedding tabletop. It makes the wedding dinner feel like an elegant dinner party. We’ll probably also see an increase in monograms being used as a projection on walls or the dance floor as couples seek that extra personal touch.


Pastel colors are also making a strong comeback. Pantone seems to agree as they just released Living Coral as the color of the year for 2019.

Laser cutting

As laser cutting technology becomes more accessible, we are seeing it used to personalized place settings with laser cut name place cards and menus.

Wild Florals

Structured florals can become costly which is why are starting to see couples moving towards looser arrangements and greenery as the focal point for their table displays. We think this lean towards a more wild look will catch on like wild fire next year.
