If you plan an event in the near (or long term) future but you have no idea of how to get started or organize it, the Table Planner comes to your rescue. This London-based company, will offer you a "thematic" table setting, providing unusual and quirky designs ( how about the London Underground setting for example or even better Musicals?), matching stationery (from invitations to menu's copies) and also picking the venue.
