We put mirrors under our centerpieces. Is that an option? I’m not sure if it fits your theme, but it’s pretty.

Also, I love the mock up! Beautiful! 🙂

You could probably dye the doilies?

What about stones:


or a antique serving tray like on the left:


or maybe wood slabs like some of the bees on here have done.


It really depends on your theme. I love milk vases though. Your idea seems lovely so far.

How about mismatched vintage handkercheifs?  I found a few just by searching “green handkerchiefs”:




I’m sure you could scout antique stores and flea markets to find a bunch under 5.00 or so.

Try fabric squares. They are pre-cut squares that are intended to be used in quilting. You could have different colors on each table or go for a more uniform look, depending on what you want. You can also finish the edge by using some iron-on hemming tape (available at wal-mart). Or buy fabric and cut it to the size you want (that’s what I did).


That’s what I did with our tables.

@jieters:  I have heard of people saving a few bucks by using chair sashes as table runners, but I guess it depends on how big the tables are.

What about a decorative paper runner? There are some papers that virtually look like cotton or lace and you wouldn’t have to sew them.

I would arrange leaves and greenery around the bottom. The green would really go well with the white linen/glass and pink of the flowers.

I would probably make a runner or use a scarf.  I actually just bought a bunch from H&M to use on my tables.  They were pretty cheap.

maybe a simple wood base with crackle paint, like this?

We are using round slabs of wood as a base, with mason jars and flowers and branches for a more rustic look. Slabs of wood are easy to come by and if you are in upstate NY, go to a mennonite saw mill and they may be able to cut you a deal!!
