Adding Some Elegant Touches To

Your Wedding Reception Tables

Your guests will be spending an ample amount of time at their selected seats during your reception. Set the mood and theme by incorporating elegant touches to your wedding reception tables. From linens to centerpieces, there are many ways that you can do this. Here are a few suggestions to try out:

1) At a formal wedding dinner, you will be using linen napkins. Use unique, themed cookie cutters as napkin rings and slip a rose or other flower within the folds of the napkin for an extra special touch.

2) Many times you may be able to have the napkins folded in intricate ways and placed directly on the dinner plates.

3) Have one larger flowered centerpiece for the table, then place a single vase and matching flower at each place setting.

4) Use large lace doilies or solid fabric table toppers over the top of plain white tablecloths to add color and texture to the room.

5) Use small picture holders as place cards. These double as your favors as well.

6) Scatter rose petals on the table. Another option is to use inexpensive rhinestones, large beads or colored glass beads instead.

7) Using narrow “curly ribbon”, scatter small curls on the tabletop in colors that match your theme.
