One of the prettiest things you’ll see at a wedding reception are the table center pieces. Here are some ideas on how to make some great damask tables for your wedding day.
Here is a site that shows you some very nice damask table runners. Table runners really make it work. Without them the table would seem dull. I think they are a must. I’ve decorated for a couple of weddings and without the table runners it just looked really bare. Click here to view. Now what I would do is look at the picture and buy my own material and make my own. You can tie bows or make puffs and use safety pins. But you can also buy from this site.
Next to go in the center of the table is something to add more warmth. That would be a candle of course! Here is a great site to find an idea or to buy a damask candle. Click Here to view. You can also buy plain candle holders and use stencils. It takes a bit of extra work but saves you a ton of money.
Next you will definitely want some flowers. You can use any type or colors of flowers you desire. Just make sure it goes with the colors of your damask theme. For example if your colors are black and white then you can use either black roses with a white table runner or black and white roses with a black table runner or just match the materials up and see what looks good.
You should also have wedding favors. As you’ll see next to the candle in the site above, they have little bags. Now of course you can order the bags with the candles or you can use your stencil that you did with the candles and just buy plain white or plain clear bags. You’ll either want to put one of these at each plate or have enough in the center piece that accommodates for each plate. Click Here to view again.
If it fits in your budget it would be awesome to have matching damask plates. What you could do is use your typical caterer’s plate and use matching napkins to match the decor you put on the candles and the bags. They can be smaller napkins than the actual dinner napkins and go on top of each plate. Along with the design you can put your names. You can have a professional match this up with your own design. Here is a great site for custom made napkins.
You can try all kinds of different things. You can always buy a few things and set it up on your table at home to see how each setting will look and just take back what you don’t need. If you are buying from a website, consider ordering for just one table to make sure you like it first. If nothing else you can use it on the gift table so it doesn’t go to waist. Also some websites will have return policies to your advantage.
