So the wedding isn’t until next year, but I am trying to plan everything out. I am table challenged, I don’t know what to do. We are having about 16 round tables, white linens come with our venue. White table clothes and white napkins. My colors are pink and yellow so I was planning to have pink flowers on half the tables and yellow on the other half. Alternating between short and taller square vases. Not the super tall ones though. That’s really it though beyond the small pink box for the favor, table number and dinner menu. I am looking for plan and simple, I like the classic look, but I also don’t want boring. I could rent linens, but it gets very expensive.
Does anyone have table ideas or pictures of good things? I like classic and modern, it’s at a newer Country Club. Thanks so much!

you might consider renting pink & yellow napkins and alternate those on the tables or renting just a table runner that wouls spice things up a bit but not overwhelm the table with color…

Do you know if you are doing regular chairs, chivari chairs or chair covers? The chair covers would come with a ribbon that you could have as pink or yellow. Also, you can decide to include your favors on the tables – which could be decorative – or you could include table numbers on the tables . . . There are lots of options.

What about (instead of having only pink or only yellow flowers on different tables) having the centerpieces being a combination of pink & yellow flowers together? That might bring the two colors together better.
You can also tie the colors together with your paper goods – table numbers, place cards, menus.

I would also mix the yellow and pink flowers together in one vase instead of having them separated on different tables. I think it’d be prettier mixed together.
Maybe you could throw some tealight candles around the vase too? Other than that I think you’d be fine. Simpler really is better and those tables get pretty crowded by the time you get all the drinks, plates, silverware, and water canisters on them, not to mention the table number signs too if you use those. Most guests don’t even notice the centerpieces that much!

A simple and inexpensive way to add some color to the table is with ribbon.
Picture this with your colors.

Combo the pink and yellow flowers:
You could add a printed runner over each table to add some visual interest:
To add to your ‘classic’ clean look, you could put the flowers in milk glass vases with differing heights…
Hope that helps!!

THANKS for all the messages! I areally appreciate all the advice and think I will change the flowers to yellow and pink mixed together. I am going to look into table runners as well. That pink flowered one is so pretty above. Again, thanks so much!
