Wedding Reception Table Decorations

If you're looking for wedding reception table decorations or table decor then you'll find plenty of ideas here.

But exactly what elements go into making your reception tables look beautiful?

Well, let's take a look at the following items.

Table Linens

Several reception venues will provide you with white or cream colored table linens and your choice of colored napkins. But if you're looking to make your reception look a little different then you might want to consider going beyond that standard white or cream-colored tablecloth.

  • You could choose to do a colored tablecloth in a material other than cotton.
  • You can choose a flower, stripe, or other pattern.
  • You could even do a solid color with a pattern overlay.

Don't forget to have your napkin color complement your table linens.

I saw a really beautiful idea on Platinum Weddings, which was a show on the WE channel. It was a glass table with real flowers inside.

It was the most unique thing that I had ever seen. I believe that the table was designed by a company called Dream Design Weddings. They do some very beautiful and unique designs for weddings.

You can go to their website and take a look at pictures from the beautiful weddings that they have done. You could find something that you may want to do for your wedding or even decide to use them to design something just for you.

If you could put flowers inside a table just imagine what else you could do with a concept like that. Just remember that you don't want to do overkill with elements as unique as this table. Save it for the cake and/or your sweetheart table.

If you are trying to save money and are trying to do wedding reception table decorations yourself then you might just have to go and find a disposable tablecloth.

That doesn't mean that you have to go to your nearest party supply store and get a plastic colorful tablecloth (even though you could and it may look nice). There are many supply places that have really nice disposable linens that look like the real thing.


Just because your reception site gives you chairs with your reception package doesn't mean that you are stuck with them.

You can always rent other chairs if you are not happy with the ones given to you. I think that chiavari chairs are very nice and add elegance to the table.

If you don't want to go as far as renting chairs you could opt for chair covers and possibly sashes.

Table decor

The actual wedding reception table decorations or the items that you are placing on the table should complement the linens that you have chosen. These items would include:

Remember that you want all of these items to come together without one element overpowering the others.
