Now you have all your templates finished, it's time to arrange them on the table. Make sure you have your plates, cutlery and glasses ready, so you can work around them with your décor.
Dani recommends arranging your bigger items first and then working down in order of size. "I start by putting the tablecloth on," she says, "and then adding in the biggest objects like flowers in vases or flowers arranged on the table, and then I work down and scatter the smaller items."
Add your focal point decorations in the centre of the table first – this could be flowers, driftwood pieces, pine cones or even fresh fruit, such as whole oranges or pumpkins, depending on your theme. Then add smaller items like your menu lists and name cards, as these are easy to place by each plate.
Dani suggests grouping your items in odd numbers – she always adds decorations in threes for a more appealing look.
Once those aspects are in place it's time to arrange your smaller papercrafted decorations around them, dotting them about the table as you see fit. Perhaps each person has a miniature owl by their drinking glass? Then you can add your final touches, like napkin rings, and other small ornaments.
Dani was impressed with the range of free templates available on Creative Park, and relished the chance to get inspired. "I thought the challenge was really cool and gave me freedom to get really creative with paper and make it look really beautiful – it's not something I've done before so it allowed me to flex my creative muscles," she says.
If you're inspired to have a go, browse the #MadeWithPixma hashtag for more creative ideas and then share your papercraft tablescape, tagging @canonemea.
Whatever the occasion, why not decorate your table with papercraft?
