When I was younger, I hated setting the table for dinner parties (my mother can attest to it). Funny how our tendencies change, isn’t it? These days, I can imagine very few things that get my creative juices flowing more than designing a fabulous table, then setting it just in time to show off to friends and family. Take this table from our Oscar Night party for our HGTV.com series, where we set a clean white palette, but gave it a Hollywood makeover with gilded metallic accents. And for the finishing touch: poured down the length of the table was a runner made entirely of gold confetti flecks, adding texture and glitz. Love it as much as we do? No need for instructions here, replicating this look is a piece of cake. Buy gold confetti in bulk, and be amazed by how often it comes in handy!
