I love the long, strewn-out centerpieces that stretch along the length of the table!  Or varying heights of vases, etc.  Google rectangle tables wedding reception…I got some great ideas that way!  Runners are gorgeous too.  Good luck!

@cre, so beautiful! I’m thinking of stealing the idea for a garden party. It screams tea and crumpets to me 🙂 So chic and elegant!

oh i think rectangle tables are by default more elegant than round!  as you can see in the pics posted above they look great.  just make sure you have plenty of flowers and candles running down the center… nothing is worse than dinky looking centerpieces.

Yeah, I think rectangle tables look more modern. They are my preference, looks wise. Strewn out centerpieces are also more modern, IMO, so it shouldn’t be a problems. Lots of candles, vary height. Wallah!

im using rectangular tables just because i like the family feeling… im using white linens and black runners. each table will have three maroccan lantern with red candles inside plus there will be two red charger with some small tins with candy inside… i liek rectangular better than round…

@MrsJellyBean227 What’s your budget? I don’t think this is all that cheap but it looks REALLY striking and eye catching it’s a lot of color and very sleek and modern. I wish I had a picture because I’m sure this is gunna sounds crazy without the visual but . . . I saw someone use sheets of mosaic tiles like the kind you use for bathrooms or mirrors etc (like the attached pic). They used the tiles as a runner instead of fabric, with candles scattered around and smaller square vases with orchids floating in them. They have so many great colors that those tile come in I always thought it would be fun to do an event using those!  [attachment=690910,89702]

My sister’s venue comes with rectangle tables included in the venue price…round tables were 10 bucks a pop…soooo…we’re going with rectangular and they will all be connected in a U-shape….we are doing alternating tall and short centerpieces with candles. I think it looks really modern and elegant.

Here are some more cost effective ideas as well. You could make your own different fabric runners which you could get at Joann I think (really you could get any fabric and if you’re in a major city you can get some great deals in the fabric district). I LOVE the idea of putting out breadsticks in the mason jars on the table!
