Honestly I would just stick with the white table cloths and throw a green floralyte in the vase. That will cast a green glow over everything for a lot less money than overlays. 🙂

I bought enough fabric for 16 table runners for only $50. If you or someone you know is handy with a sewing machine, I think that is a good way to make things more formal.

I would not go plastic no matter what. I think runners would be nice but if they’re out of budget plain white tablecloths are not the end of the world.

IMO I think candles always add some elegance to the look. I’ve seen some pretty cheap votives at places like Target & Wal-Mart.

Go to Dollar Tree and get some candles, and use white table cloths, no plastic

I like the floralyte idea. It’d be cheap and have a large impact.

Do something fun with the napkins! I spent an entire night folding all of our napkins into these cute little bows with ribbon. I think it made a huge impact. See if your venue will let you steal their napkins the night before so you can do somthing fun. Plus, it’s free!
