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!

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.
