When it comes to event planning and decor, every detail matters. From the color scheme to the table settings, each element contributes to the overall ambiance and experience of the event. One often overlooked but essential aspect of table decor is the charger plate. Charger plates not only serve a practical purpose but also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your tablescape. And if you’re looking to take your event to the next level, consider going organic with your charger plates.
Charger plates (also known as service plates, under plates or set plates) are large decorative plates that are typically placed beneath the dinner plate and serve as a decorative element to settings. While they may not necessarily hold food, these play a crucial role in elevating the overall presentation of a table setting. Whether you are planning a wedding at a rustic barn, chic garden party or coastal celebration, we’ve rounded up our favorite chargers inspired by nature and organic elements to upgrade the your table designs.
Boca Handwoven Natural Charger
The unique textures of organic charger plates bring both tactile and visual interest to table designs, adding depth to place setting and serving as a beautiful backdrop for your dinnerware. Available in a natural sandy hue as well as a muted grey tone, and featuring an eye-catching handwoven design with fringe edging, our Boca Handwoven Chargers perfectly fit into the organic charger category. Layer these chargers with our Heirloom Linen China or Finezza Cream China or added texture, and Reverie Social’s Dune Striped Napkin to transport your guests to a tropical oasis.
