Table Linens

When decorating your head table, you want to create a look that is both modern and traditional. Start with beautiful table linens in colors that match your wedding theme. Go for a rectangular white tablecloth layered with a dusty rose chiffon table runner to imbue soft and subtle elegance. This romantic yet classic wedding color palette works well all the time, so when in doubt; any shade of pink and white with hints of metallic accents are your go-to colors!

Tabletop Decor

We don’t want to add to the pressure but your wedding day is an incredibly special moment in your life—one that will be remembered by all those attending your wedding reception long after it's over! So take some time to make sure everything looks just right before inviting your guests to take their seats at the head table—you'll thank yourself later! Once you have the table linens sorted, add metal flower stand centerpieces bedecked with floral arrangements featuring white roses and lush green foliage and pillar candles secured in gold candelabras that give off gold an elegant glow. Use other tabletop decorations such as mercury glass tea light holders, greenery garlands, pedestal candle holders, and pillar candles for a more extravagant touch.  

Place Settings

When selecting plates and glasses for your place settings, aim for pieces that match the overall color palette of your event but still stand out from one another—for example, use two different shades of dinnerware together for added visual interest. You can opt for metallic gold chargers and white dinner plates accenting them with dusty rose polyester napkins and green leaf sprays for understated elegance.
