The Most Controversial Pattern: How to Deal with Polka Dots

Though the polka dot craze is considered to have its first debut on the men’s fashion scene in mid-19th century England, the iconic pattern associates with everything feminine (thanks to flamenco dancers and the 60s housewives) and childish (thanks to Minnie Mouse). To this end, many of us feel hesitated about polka dots, both in clothing and home/event décor. But let’s face it: if used in a correct way, this nostalgic design can be elegant, flirtatious, retro, or whimsy – just take a look at several ways of weaving it into every décor.

Classics Is Your Best Friend

There’s nothing more classic than black and white polka dots. For example, in order to make your keepsakes more visually appealing and stylish, feel free to put them into our black/white polka dotted favor boxes, which will look adorable when trimmed with one of our solid-colored thin organza ribbons. For a little twist, consider chocolate/white or navy/white – if you doubt, just check out our chocolate brown/white boxes or navy/white polka dotted ribbon!

Choose Just a Polka Dot Instead

For those who haven’t heard – polka dot is about regularly spaced dots of the same size. Any variation to this traditional pattern can dial-down that levity of polka dots, whether it is hand-painted dots or a twist on an animal print. Anyway, that’s where our groovy dots table runner comes into play – throw it atop your solid-colored linens and the velvet dots will make your tablescape more touchable and dimensional. Longing for the smaller dots? Our The Way I Like It tulle bolts or tulle with sequin dots will be a safe bet!

Combine with Other Patterns

Believe it or not, polka dots can be a great component of décor full of other sophisticated patterns, like stripes, plaid checks, or florals. All you need is to stick to a cohesive color palette. Thus, you can blow everybody away with a table runner made from our striped fabric, gold chargers, and polka dotted  napkins. Your bridal shower table will make everyone’s jaws dropped if you spread our black/white polka dot table runner, add striped fabric napkins to go along with paper straws, and top everything off with pink flowers and pom poms.

Make an Accent

Even when it comes to serious-looking displays “with great pedigree”, incorporating some polka dots will never hurt – these playful spots will give some fun and approachability. To achieve a more sophisticated display, try to make your dots an accent, not a focal point. Thus, your tablescape won’t look tacky if you combine our plain linens with our white/black polka dotted satin table runner and neutral-colored dishes.

Consider Size

If you are looking to add some dimension into your setups, consider smaller dots, which will look like a texture from a distance and will bring that “grown-up” seriousness into your design. To this end, our white/black mini polka dots paper disposable straws or polka dot beverage napkins go far beyond kids parties.  Meanwhile, our white/red grosgrain polka dot ribbon will bring that childlike innocence. At the same time combining different types of polka dotted designs (no more than three at one sitting) will take your display a step further.  

More Round Shapes!

To complement your dotted accessories, consider adding more round shapes to mimic those peppy polka dots. For example, if you are kicking an event for your kiddos, feel free to use our blush cotton garland to go along with our white/blush polka dotted disposable plastic tablecloth. Our groovy dots runner will be a perfect addition to our round-shaped candle holders.
