There are many different uses for tables at wedding receptions: the guest tables, wedding party tables, dessert tables, buffet tables, and the gift tables. In the Outer Banks, decorating these tables takes much consideration, but can be a lot of fun with creating the perfect theme. While the functions of the wedding tables differ, there are common decorating elements that you can use for each type of table.
- Table Linens: While most wedding receptions stick to the basic white tablecloth, you shouldn’t be afraid to add vibrant color. Dressing the table up a bit with a colorful table runner can do wonders. And with matching wedding linens, it can instantly brighten up the reception room.
- Centerpieces: The tablecloth certainly grabs attention, but the centerpiece of the wedding table is most important element. Make sure that it’s not too high so guests sitting across from each other can still have a great conversation. For the eating tables, a floral centerpiece like flowers in a crystal vase with a silk ribbon tied around can scream elegance. Candles and rose petals won’t cost you a fortune and still sends a message of beauty and formality. For the smaller tables, like the gifts table, placing a single rose in a bud vase adds a wonderful touch.
- Place Cards: In the idea of creating order for the wedding reception, place name cards to designate the seats for all your guests. It does take advanced planning with who sits next to whom, but it will allow everyone to have a fantastic time at your wedding. Decorating these cards not only adds to its function, but to the beauty of the tables, as a whole. Inexpensive Silver frames create elegance and add sparkle to your tables at a great bargain.
