Congratulations! You’re preparing for a wedding, a party, or a very special event. There are so many details that go into an event and one could never imagine how many details there are until you’re the one making it! You’d like to be organized and so you make a check list of what has to be done. The gown, hair, makeup, and wedding cake are all taken care of and now you would like to focus on the color of the wedding or party tablecloth. You want the occasion to be a memorable one and the color of the tablecloth you will choose will add a tremendous amount of ambiance to the decorum.
The most common tablecloth colors are white or ivory. Black tablecloths are also popular. You may have a theme or a favorite color in mind. It is a good idea to check out the hall where your party will take place to make sure that the color you choose does not clash with the surroundings. You may have picked a beautiful lavender tablecloth however; if the wallpaper on the interior of the hall has hot pink on it, the tablecloths will not be complimentary. If you like strong, bold colors consider using a table runner or napkins in the color you prefer and use a white or ivory tablecloth instead.
Take the lighting into account. The lighting will make a difference on which color tablecloth you choose. Is your event indoors or outdoors? Are you planning a setting that is dark and romantic? If the hall has dim lighting a gold or glittery tablecloth will create a dazzling effect to your party. It is a good idea to bring a color swatch into the hall so you can rest assured that the color you pick is the right one for the occasion.
A nice idea for an outdoor reception is to have a white or ivory tablecloth and incorporate some green such as a green napkin or table runner to compliment the beautiful outdoor scenery. If the party is near a beach front, consider using a tan or blue tablecloth or table runner.
Seasons also play a part in which tablecloth you choose. In the autumn you will see more burgundy and gold tablecloths while in the spring, pink, light blue and light green colors are popular. Look at the flowers that were chosen or the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses to see if you would like to use those colors for your tablecloths.
Once again congratulations and good luck in choosing the right color for your party. Enjoy the party! And don’t forget to relish the memories you have created.
