My daughter is getting married in Oct. We thought to cut costs we would make 1 colored square for the top of the tables. The rental includes white table cloths but we want to add color without paying extra for the colored rentals.
Tables are 72" round in diameter. Anyone have suggestion on what size to make the square? I also thought of buying inexpensive scarves and placing them on the table for color?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I’m doing full-length runners; they give the table some color on all sides!

Have you checked into the cost of fabrics? I got some great overlays from http://www.weddinglinensdirect.com I really dont think that you could make them for much cheaper then what they offer plus they have a huge color selection. I think its totally worth you checking out.

Thanks for the suggestions. We definately will check in to each suggestion. Looks like I could save myself a lot of work to buy them.

I have a potential money-saving suggestion too. Not sure whether this would work for your square tables, but I don’t see why not!
I am getting chair sashes (organza) to tie onto the chairs since our linens are just white. My chair cover vendor had this photo posted on her website which is just two of the overlays crossed over one another to add a little interest. Same thing as a table runner, but thinner (less width I mean) material I would think?
Just an idea. Good luck!

We used chair sashes as well for table runners our tables were also square. If you go to bbjlinens.com look up the size of their runners- that may help. I’ll also post a picture of our tables so you can see if they are similar to yours. Goodluck!

I am thinking about making table overlays as well. I found this great site that has a linen/table compatibility chart. I found it very helpful.
