    You can do a light colored tablecloth which will make the room look even brighter. Also dont do floor linens because I think youre right, it doesnt go with your venue HOWEVER I think you should do regular ones (that come a few inches past the table) but just not floor length.

    I voted tablecloth but like ashleetoo said, not a floor length one, a few inches past the table will do.

    If you want it to look whimsical, you can do the tablecloths all different colors… instead  of one single color.

    I would definitely do tablecloths. Something about bare arborite just doesn’t say “wedding’ to me.

    In my heart of hearts I would do something like this.

    For something a bit more on the elegant side, I would use something like this.

    I think that white tablecloths would look great! And I agree with the PPs that they should only hang ~12 inches off the tables. I would just to plain, crisp white — I don’t feel like the lacy ones would go with the rest of the venue.

    I would definitely do table cloths. It’s hard to tell with the pic being sideways, but it seems like it will look sort of diner-y without them.

    I would definitely do tablecloths with these tables, since they’re rather ordinary looking, like a fast-casual eatery. If it was like a unique/rustic table like some of the more high-end or themed restaurants nowadays, I could see foregoing tablecloths.

    I agree, do a table cloth in a lighter colour, but crisp white would probably work best. Instead of a full runner, why don’t you do a square of burlap on top if you really want something on the tables, otherwise just do the table cloth. Not to the floor, like PPs mentioned 12 inches or so hanging from the tables. 

    What are you colours? Themes? Maybe that would help so we can see your overall theme you are trying to create? 🙂
