How Table Linens Add Impact To Your Wedding Reception

Jun 5th 2015 at 12:11 AM

Mixing and matching different colors and fabrics of table linens leaves creates visual interest, for an unforgettable atmosphere.

Looking to make an impact at your wedding reception? The best place to start is with your table linens. Because the tables and chair cover so much space, the size, color and fabric you choose for your linens will have a huge impact on the feel of your event. You can dramatically alter the tone of your venue with your choice of linens.

The first factor to consider is the size of your table. If you choose a table cloth large enough to cover the table and sweep the floor, your event will feel more formal. If you are going for a casual feel, a shorter tablecloth will do the trick. In general, a short tablecloth should hang no less than halfway to the floor, and a long tablecloth should just sweep the floor without bunching.

Color is probably the first thing that you and your guests will notice and plays a huge impact. You can dramatically impact the tone of your wedding reception by choosing bold colors for your linens. If you have especially vivid flowers or centerpieces, you might want to let them shine by choosing neutral linen shades. If the chairs don’t complement your theme, you can cover them as well, either in a matching or complementary color. Contrasting a table linen with a different color for napkins is a great way to add complementary colors.

A riot of impact can be made with specialty linens, especially with your choice of. A sheer layer overlay creates shadows and depth and can beautifully alter the color of the base tablecloth to create depth. Rambunctious ribbon flowers guarantee luxurious drama, and pintuck diamonds provide texture you can see and touch. Shantung adds subtle shine and quiet elegance. Stripes can pack a punch in contrasting colors, or create subtle visual texture when kept monochromatic. If you prefer something really sleek and modern, spandex tablecloths or chair covers hug the lines of your tables and chairs, transforming them into sleek sculpted shapes.

Don’t get too locked into just one color, style, or fabric, either. Try using romantic damask for your cake table or sweetheart table and keep the guest tables simple, or use table runners that coordinate back to the supplementary tables. Consider using white or cream as your base linen, and add splashes of impact with the table runners, napkins, chair covers or chair sashes.

If you’re just getting started and need some guidance, talk to a specialist at a party rental company. They can help you narrow your options and prioritize your list. To learn more about table and linen rental in Corpus Christi, visit this site.
