hi everyone…well we’ve finally decided that our tables definitely need some dressing up…i’ve shown this picture before but just as a refresher, this is what our table looked like after the set up we did at the venue last month..
since then we have stained the boxes to be a dark wood and thanks to our wonderful florist who’s full of ideas we’ve decided to use a different flower on top (our colors are pomegranate and various shades of green)…
anyway, we are now trying to decide whether or not to use different color linens or just use more of the clear and green glass beads on the table. i’m wondering what you all think. should we use an overlay on top of the white linens? would a runner suffice? what color would you suggest? again, our colors are pomegranate and various shades of green (from chartruese to grass)..here is a picture of my shoes so you can get an idea of the pomegranate color.
thanks in advance!

I would suggest using more green glass beads or perhaps some sheer green ribbon running across the table. I think if you add to much pomegranate it might look too much like Christmas colors – red, green, white.
So I would play up the green colors a little more. I love the flower box idea. I know you don’t want too much more on the table or it will look busy, but some other things might be green apples, limes, etc. Or perhaps sashes on the chairs.
Here’s some ideas:

I agree with emredhead76 that using more green beads would be beneficiary. What other kinds of things are you sticking on the table? I think it will look better once there are plates, glasses, utensils, etc. Are you sticking any place cards, menus or anything else like that? I think it will make the table look less empty.
If you wanted to add a touch of red, maybe a red flower instead of a white one?

since we are doing a buffet lunch the table will have the following at each seat:
- one fork
- one knife
- water glass
- champagne flute
- either a trivia card or cootie catcher
in addition to that stuff there will be:
- salt and pepper
- a table number
