  1. 1

    Look for a table cloth that features a golf theme. There are several options. If you want subtlety, look for a cloth the colour of grass to simulate the playing greens. If the intent is to be more obvious, find a table cloth that golf ball illustrations and scenes of people playing golf or words associated with the sport.

  2. 2

    Add a long table runner. For example, a gold table runner on a green table cloth would look sharp and feature the colours of the Masters golf match. Place it on top of the table cloth, down the middle of the table.

  3. 3

    Locate silverware featuring golf motifs. You can find these at speciality stores–the handles will either feature a carved golf ball or will be shaped like a golf club.

  4. 4

    Find plates and cups with golf photos on them. Party supply stores often carry these items. If not, hunt around garage sales.

  5. 5

    Buy napkins and napkin rings. If you’ve chosen a plain green table cloth, you can either add green napkins or search for a more specific golf-themed napkins. Search Online for speciality napkin rings that feature golf insignias.

  6. 6

    Make some place cards for the table. You can use a design program to create a golf graphic–write each guest's name on the card.

  7. 7

    Design or buy a centrepiece for your table. Most flower shops offer a number of decorative themes including the sport of golf. To make one yourself, however, buy a shallow metal tub and fill it with sand. Place a few golf ball candles in the sand. Make a decorative sign that indicates this is the sand trap.

Tips and warnings

  • If you can’t find a golf-themed table cloth, you can make one. Buy a plain table cloth and add iron-ons or decorate using T-shirt paints or tri-chem.
  • If you opt for the sand trap centrepiece, you may want to place a few large placemats under it. Both the sand and the tub itself could damage your table.
