    @MoodyFoodie:  I voted other: In my head, the ombre you describe would be dark tablecloths at one end and pale at the other which (to me) would look a bit unbalanced. I really like the idea of different coloured tablecloths, but mixed up rather than uniformly (if that makes sense). All different but cohesive centrepieces sound like an awesome idea.

    i’m not sure what ombre effect is. i’m going to look it up.

    but we are doing 2 different table cloth colors (they have texture to them)

    and having 2-3 different centerpieces for the tables.

    @MoodyFoodie:  You could also do the ombre by going from light or dark in the center of the room, then changing color as you move towards the walls.

    @ajillity81:  I like this idea so there is come cohesion to the tables.  Having different colors and centerpieces for everything in my head just looks like a bunch of different stuff slapped together.  If the wedding has a casual vibe you might get away with the different tables being decorated differently because you used what was around the house or borrowed from grandma.  But if it’s formal, I would recommend choosing 3-4 tablecloth colors and using 2-3 different centerpieces but using the same objects for continuity.

    Our tablecloths were alternated red and blue. The red tables had turquoise, yellow, and blue napkins. The blue tables had red, yellow, and turquoise napkins. The centerpieces were the same, just different sizes though. Everyone loved the way it turned out.

    I think your ombre idea would look great, but I’d keep the centerpieces the same or similar.
