Going the extra mile to spruce up your tables can have a big visual impact at your baby shower. Using nontraditional patterns such as black and white damask will leave your guests in awe. Google defines damask as “A rich silk fabric woven with elaborate designs and figures, produced by complicated weaving, often of a variety of colors.” When you think of the swirly pattern, you may think Grandma’s boring kitchen table linens or ugly floral patterns…or just plain old…old! But think again, because damask is back! From the runway-ready clothing and accessories to the latest couture table settings, the Damask pattern has reinvented itself and is a fabulous way to accent tables…or anything for the matter in a unique and visually stimulating way! It says “elegant” “vintage” and “ultra-modern” simultaneously.
