If you will have banquet reception tables, then you will have to purchase some high table centerpieces. In this way, the general view of these long and narrow tables will be softened. Therefore, you should purchase some scented candlesticks, for instance, because these will work at both the aspectual and olfactice level.
If you want, you may choose some plates that would resemble the shape of the table. Thus, you will get rid of those dull and boring round plates. However, when decorating these tables I know that you will feel pressured to cover every single inch of the table, but the fact is that not everything must be filled with details. It is perfectly normal to have a clean and beautifully organized reception table.
In the case of round reception tables, which are very popular, you won’t have many rules to follow. You will just have to remember that more shapes are to be added, in order to avoid a dull aspect: use some square plates, rectangular candles and so on. Add more colors, but remember to layer them through damask or stripes patterns. Therefore, have something like this at your wedding venue and you will take advantage from the conversational benefits, while the aspect will be a bright and party like one.
On the other hand, square tables will have to obtain some symmetry; so make connections through chairs, linens, napkins, and so on. At the same time you should know that these tables shouldn’t be rigorously arranged one next to the other, because otherwise you will create an extremely organized aspect. So, make sure you will have enough room to move around or to dance.
Regardless of your choice: banquet, square or round, the number one aspect you should take into consideration is that your preferences and personality must be exposed when arranging your reception tables, thus get involved 100% in this moment.
