So…I am a damask bride, as 90% of the bride population is nowadays, but I don’t care! I love it! 🙂 Anyhow, I desperately wanted damask runners, but even renting them is too pricey for our 40 table wedding. The other day, I went to Target and saw that they had flocked, damask gift wrap! I bought 20 rolls and am planning on using them for table squares (rather than runners). What do you think? Tacky or resourceful?

I don’t think tacky but be prepared that by the end of the night they will be wrinkles and torn. Think about if a guest dropps some food on them, it won’t exaclty wipe off. If the paper is heavy enough it might work like restaurants do though.

Resourceful…But maybe get a cheapo laminate job done on the paper to prevent the problems that caszos notes.

I’ve seen some centerpieces like this, but they used three sheets of scrapbook paper in a staggered pile under the flowers.

I think personally, it’s a great idea, I mean really – linens get pricey… as for me, I’m just going the plain white linen route because frankly I’m not a linen person, but if I fell in love with some beautiful gift wrap I’d do a big thumbs up! :o)

I think it is very resourceful! I loved flocked damask. I would go down to Joann’s and buy some of that clear white plastic like what they use for tablecloths and cut it to fit over the wrapping paper. Or you can see how much it would cost at Kinko’s to laminate them. There is a Xyron machine that I am sure you can find a coupon for at Michaels or Joann’s that has the capabiliity to laminate, and the machine is easy to operate…
