The design of any event does not stop and start at the centerpiece.  There are dozens of other ways at various price points, to make a very real impact.  A dramatic change can be made with as simple a thing as table linens.  White table linens are pedestrian at anytime other than daytime events or specific themes that might require them, like the Ballet Gala below.

"Diana: a Celebration" Opening Gala (Cincinnati 2014)

Black or color linens can make a strong impact at a doable price point.  Adding a simple black linen can be dramatic and beautiful, like the wedding to the left, where the centerpiece was the star.  Whereas adding a color linen, like the one above for the Diana exhibit opening gala, was chosen to emulate her sapphire engagement ring.  The silver Chiavari chairs representing the diamonds surrounding the sapphire completed the allusion.
