How To Decorate with Table Linens

 In Events

Table linens are one of the greatest assets to decorating and creating ambiance.  When you are dressing a room for a special occasion, table linens can be used to draw multiple elements together within the room.  They set the stage, so to speak, and it is important to choose them wisely.  Colorado Party Rentals has quality linens for every occasion, today we have a few ideas to help inspire you for your special occasion! Take a look at our designer linen collection and be inspired with what you can do!

Choosing Tablecloths for Your Events in Colorado

The color of the tablecloth is a tool that is used to alter the mood of a room or setting without changing the tableware.  In a formal setting, the colors used are typically white, ivory, and ecru.  Sometime pastel colors are often used as well.  With informal dining, you can use various shades to create the ambiance you want.

Layering

Layering tablecloths, table runners and napkins brings a designer look to your table setting.  Set a stylish table with choosing multiple sizes in tablecloths.  The bottom one should fall as close to the floor as possible.  The second one should cover the table and fall about 12 inches off the side.   Top it all off with a table runner down the center of the table, or several shorter ones laid across the width of the table.
